remember this is an international list, not just one for australia...
The legistration only effects Australian ISPs and it really sucks.. a real
pain for isps to implement correctly...

The access.log file should contain information on what has been downloaded
via your cache, and which ip address it was requested by.. so if you
compare to your accounting logs you should be able to work out which user
made the request..
