Ijust downloaded a picture onto tinypic and one of those stupid little adverts came up - something about two of my friends from Chelmsford have a crush on me.

Now how did it know I am accessing it from Chelmsford?

That worries me as I haven't signed up to anything on the site, the chances of it being random are not very big as there is only one Chelmsford in the UK and one in the USA as far as I know....................

And if addresses or whatever can be pinpointed like that whats it going to be like if this stupid government decide to try and build a database of every email and phone call ever made................... talk about opening systems up to abuse! :evil:

It is possible to pinpoint the IP address and location of your PC - I think a lot of fairly basic 'anti hacker' software can do it e.g. Norton etc
