The 'and more' is very interesting, just goes to show what can be see when running javascript by default. I wonder if there are other elements that can be checked which could expose you to possible exploit.

Try ip-address.com's new IP to location database.
http://www.ip-adress.com/

How close to home did they come? (My identified location matches the zip code.)

Well it doesn't give UK post codes, but it was two counties out (said Cambridge), but you actual IP address could be almost anywhere with the way the UKs ISP structure goes.

I doubt there are many with a local ISP. There are lots of different ISPs but most of them piggyback of one of the main service providers.

Mine shows up as Hickory, NC so they only missed it by about 40 miles. Im guessing that it shows hickory because that is where Charter's Plant for our area is.

Mine got London right, although the little house is in the wrong place but close enough :)
