    I was using the HMA professional proxy and it works OK but the VPN is very slow; no matter what they say, it's slooooow. So today I bought a separate VPN from a company called "Private Internet Access" and it's very fast. OK, I like that. So, I go to the Internet to check my IP address (whatismyip) and it says, "No proxy detected good sir, and you are so awesome because it looks like you are in Switzerland when you are actually in Washington DC".... Yay! That's what I wanted to see. So I pat myself on the back....

    Then I type into Google, "Where am I?" and the second link in the results page reads, "See where you are in the world"... so I click that and it says, "You are in Washington DC, and you're not nearly as cool as you think you are!" Gasp! I am not even a little bit cool.

    Then I go looking around the Internet and I see that Google Chrome has some Geo. location tool, so I disable that in my browser, and clear all my cookies and cache etc. Then I go look (Where am I?) again, this time it says "We don't know where the flip you are!" But then a Google map pops up and it's showing Washington DC, close to where I am.... What gives? How can I dodge the geo location BS?
