How do you suppose Ttech knew where you live in order to provide you a link that opens right up to your general location?

If you're ever really, really bored, try the link using Tor browser.

I had no idea he did know. And, btw, why does it matter to you to say this? "where I live" wasn't part of my question. I do appreciate the suggestion. Just downloaded the tor installer.

I was making a joke. Neither Ttech, nor I know where you live - as far as I know.

Bing mapping uses the location of your IP address to display a map of your general location when you go to the address that Ttech posted.

When I click that link, it shows my location, not yours, or Ttech's.

It's hard to predict the location that Tor will open - so you can get a lesson in world geography - when you are really, really bored.

JIm.

So I tried it and it opens to Atlanta, which is weird, because it (the internet) usually thinks I'm in Chicago, which is weird, because I'm in neither.

(My internet is a LTE hotspot, so that's why, but I don't know the why of the why.)

Tor is designed to do that.

I often end up in Germany, Austria (not the one spelled with a third "a" and an "l" added that's located in the Southern Pacific ), Lichtenstein, or Switzerland - all of which have lovely scenery.

Jim.
