The map function is pretty nifty, but kinda creepy. I makes it seem like, if I wanted to, I could just look up where you live, and show up on your doorstep. (Aaron might not like that so much, though)

However, the thingy says I'm on in a different side of the highway that Aaron and I live next to.

How odd.

Why bother?

Most guys here would eagerly send GPS coordinates.

IP lookups aren't very accurate really, they are made off records keep by Internet Service Providers. Some are really far off, like in the case of cellular internet cards.

(The internet rumor monger)

Irene said her and Aaron had split up. Apparently she has moved out of the house! Oh My!




I am from all over if you IP me, but mostly I show up as a Canadian. Lol

Hey, that's pretty cool!
I didn't know about that.
They missed my house by about five miles;
I guess nobody will be dropping by. Laughing

I'll be darned, I never knew that was there cyclops I musta went to the same school as Buck rabbit

Not terribly accurate. Missed be by over 100 miles. Looks like the Comcast server hub (or whatever) is in San Jose.

Wow that's cool, never knew that was there. It was off by about 8 states when I was at work, but is right now that I'm home. Guess at work they run it through a corporate service center so they can monitor what we do.

That is pretty cool but I am on my company issued laptop right now which has all kinds of security bells and whistles and it dosen't allow my location to be visible.

Huh, well I'll be damned. According to the map it looks like I'm operating out the middle of a field in the middle of nowhere. Not only is it about 15 miles off but it's not even close to where my internet provider is based out of! Perhaps in a few more years the magical entity of the internet will not only pinpoint the location but also provide a live video feed from an orbiting satellite.

And they are getting closer! How's this for creepy? Using Google maps I can show you the gas station I typically fill up at on a daily basis (I'd show my apartment, but they don't have that available yet):

I never noticed that before, either. Of course, it has me in Kansas, when I'm in Ohio. My wife's from Kansas but I don't think that explains it.

I live about 1000 miles from where I grew up, so I like to get onto Google maps sometimes and "visit".

For shits & giggles looked again today and it has me within 2 miles of the house. Not sure why the change in location from the other day. Too much tech savvy to figure that one out.

Usually your ISP uses what's called DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) that automatically assigns you an IP address. They have lease times so when your lease time expires you get assigned a new IP address. So you have a different address at different times, hence the different location.

The thing has me in Bakersfield, California when I'm in Glendale, Arizona. Looks like it has Regor correct because he lives just south of Tucson which is south of me.

I grew up in Bakersfield. Got a big kick out of the outhouse in the movie Castaway with Tom Hanks. It definately fits, one big Shithole.

It has me some 40 miles away in the middle of Washington Park in Milwaukee. I must be taking a nice stroll, enjoying a pipe and the warm weather. 47 outside today, which is quite a change from the single digit highs just a few days ago!
