127.0.0.1 is the "loopback" address that points to the local computer. You
might use that.

Subject: Bogus IP address for screen shot
Are there reserved IP addresses that will not point to any specific
computer? I need to replace internal IP addresses with bogus ones,
but I don't want to guess a number that will indeed represent someone
else's computer... Do I have to use 188.8.131.52 (looks a bit fake)? Is
there an equivalent to the 555 phone numbers for IP addresses?
