    Default Where am I?

    I'm not using a VPN. Where am I in this post? Others might find it interesting to ask the same. Tyr could even let us see what provider the state of Arkansas uses when he hangs out at the rest area restrooms on I-30.

    How about you post from the mall, your favorite restaurant, etc. and see what staff comes up with?

    I'm leaning toward #11 with a side of C4 & a unibrow.

    Number 11? That's a boatload of rupees, NT. You have expensive taste.

    No biggie. It shows up as a Google proxy. It's also blacklisted in many places across the internet for spam. So unless it's YOU spamming, which I doubt, it's nothing more than a shared IP proxy allowing you to hide your tracks. One can either use websites to browse through, or place an IP in their browsers network settings and do so manually.
    I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears and sweat…You ask, what is our policy? I say it is to wage war by land, sea, and air. War with all our might and with all the strength God has given us, and to wage war against a monstrous tyranny never surpassed in the dark and lamentable catalogue of human crime. That is our policy. You ask, what is our aim? I can answer in one word. It is victory. Victory at all costs - Victory in spite of all terrors - Victory, however long and hard the road may be, for without victory there is no survival.

    Well, I get tired of carrying around 50,000 rupees all the time. Thinking about hiring a rupee Sherpa.

    True, why weigh yourself down? I've heard it's always a good idea to keep yourself unencumbered, in case you have to run for it.

    You never know when you'll have to make a break for it, even in a jewelry store.

    The first post was from a cable company hot spot and this one from my cell 4G connection. Mechanically, why do you suppose it comes up as a proxy?

    Next week I will try using some Wi-fi from local restaurants and see what shows up.

    Do they still show up as Texas locations?

    I wonder if other posters use their 4G in Chrome if it will show up as a proxy.

    Same thing with this one. I honestly couldn't say for sure. But if I had to guess, sounds like the hotspot is probably all routing through the same place. And since it's a public connection, likely assigning the same IP over and over and over - that's why it's blacklisted at some places. Folks like to use such connections for their bad activities.

    If you ever want to do hair-trigger ban Jiu Jitsu, when you're bored waiting for a plane, go to somewhere like Dumb-o-crat Underground and post something like "Clinton lied; people died - remember Benghazi". They will cut off their nose to spite their face and ban the whole airport from their site.
