I’m a bit late on posting this but got caught up at work and am now working on the Traceroute project-
I started with tracing some of the websites I visit often:
A some sites would fail and continue on with ‘***’
I was able to get an export of my Google history, and extract the URLs from the JSON file using this line in Terminal:
grep -o ‘http[s]*:[^”]*’ ~/Downloads/Takeout/Chrome/BrowserHisotyr.json
Once I was able to extract the URLs, I imported all of them into a Google Sheet, extracted the unique sites, and counted how many times those occurred in the JSON file.
Here is the link to the Google Sheet.
I looked up some of the common host IPs my traceroutes would go through:
Then I mapped some of my traceroutes using the Traceroute Mapper. The most interesting one would probably be tracing the site saftehnika.com — and by interesting I mean going outside of the US — considering it is a Latvian company.
