I redid this from my home pc and it said I was in Chantilly, Va. Oh well, guess that's close enough being here in Texas.  :)

Not sure what is happening with this or the results some of you are getting. I tried again today and got the same ... Marina Del Rey, CA. I use Earthlink as my ISP and I know they have a big center near there. But, they also have one in Atlanta, GA only a few hundred miles from me ... where quiries usually went through when I used NeoTrace before McAfee bought it out.    >:(

Maybe close..... but no cigar. It placed me in Australia!!! (Not that I wouldn't mind being there right now)

Yep, I read about the Mac-hack-to-XP a few days ago.

To me, it sounds like the end of Mac OS.    :(

I tried the ISP locator and it places mine at Marina Del Rey, California, US, and I am located at Puerto Rico, just in sunny Caribbean...LOL...Maybe thats the answer to the lousy service we get from local and only ISP in this Island.
The lag and slow signals are the order of the day and quite expensive too...Its about $65.00 usd a month and their own speed tests show a weak Dnld of average 800 kb and uploads of 128, if theres a blue moon ...lol
Maybe the signal we get it relayed from California down to PR and upwards again...And they sell it as a T1, LOL :'( :-[
iTS NOT THE ARROW WHO MISSED, ITS THE INDIAN...
