    Common for the scammers/spammers though.
    VPNs for private use have become a lot more common though, especially since they are advertised as increasing your online security (which is partly true, but irks me each time I hear it).

    I'd be more interested in why the Necro of a 4 year old thread....

    Every second week I'm using my employers computer system (On Stewart Island), it's Headquarters is in Auckland. So usually my "Location" is given as Auckland as that's where it's routed through. But I haven't been there since '85.

    I'm not there this week ... but will be there next monday night.

    Yeah. I'm curious as well.

    Alan,

    Google Analytics used to list the source of my blog posts as Wellington and this year as Auckland and I haven't changed anything!

    Incidentally I used VPN when we went to China last year and that indeed do as you say. It worked perfectly in Shanghai, patchy as you might expect down the Yangtze and not at all in Beijing. I think that there was some blocking going on at the time.

    No problem, carry on. We get a lot of spammers trying to slip through. Your first post is on a 3-4 year old thread, linking to a website. Location and IP are a mis-match, but not typical of spammers (list London, posting from Pakistan). So I ask... spammers don't respond. All sorted.

    Well... it's your own fault for making me turn geek mode on. Your IP address doesn't geo-locate to your precise location most of the time. This is down to your ISPs POP, or point of presence. For small ISPs, they will have one POP for the entire country, bigger ones can have multiple. This basically means your traffic, before you go to the general internet, is transferred somewhere else. So if you're in Wellington, using a Wellington ISP, then the POP is probably Wellington. But you can also be in Wellington, with an Auckland ISP, and then your POP is Auckland.

    You also have Peering Exchanges, basically clearing houses for ISPs, APE (Auckland Peering Exchange) swaps a lot of inter ISP traffic, as do others.
