Quote from: Shadow.97 on June 17, 2022, 03:32 PMI'm currently on vacation in Sweden been considering doing a tour dk->ger->nl this summer, but not decided yet.
Denmark -> Germany -> Holland, you seem to have a long vacation period.
It isnt as far as it seems :) It is in total around 10h by train, including swaps. About the distance from Mumbai to bengaluru. I havnt planned on long stays in the countries. Just

My vacation period that is approved is 17days. (where as 7 was scheduled to work, meaning 7 days of pot).
Per year I have I think 22~24 days to take out as holidays. Previous years I havnt been able to take out all. So I have some saved up on top of this.
Yeah then its very close then.

Quote from: humbert on June 20, 2022, 05:26 AMThe whole idea of me asking whether someone's IP address was visible was just to see if it could be done. Shadow is right about GeoTool. It's a browser addon for those of you who aren't familiar with it. I just checked my own IP, and GeoTool's stated location is only 1,250 meters from my real location. BTW it also supports IPV6. That's what I pasted into the input bar.
I was using https://www.maxmind.com/en/geoip-demo :) Im not all that fond of addons for features like that

I don't know if it has been said, but it's probably believed we can see them. Actually I don't see the point here.
What's more, your IP only reveals your approximate location and not your exact location. For example, my IP address gives a location in Boulogne-Billancourt, even if I'm not there.

IP location is very dependent on ISP.
The first 4 are in the same house.

2 IP addresses are within 5 minutes drive from my house
1 is 30 minute drive
1 is 1h 45 min drive
1 is 6h 30 min drive away(Other ISP at summerhouse)

''Other ISP'' routes ALL traffic through Stockholm, and location is reported as Uppsala which is the city the ISP is based out of.


IF you use a Geo IP tool, it usually reports Accuracy Radius (km).
For me, the IP locations are correct if we factor in the accuracy radius. Except the last one, which is completely wrong. It's actually a bit entertaining getting the ''Hot chicks in nearby *wrong city*, click here!!'' :)

Shadow: It's hard to imagine a bathroom inside a 1x2m rectangle that includes a shower, toilet, and sink with faucet so you can shave and wash your hands. How'd they even get all that to fit in? I wish you could draw a picture of it and send it to the forum.

Congratulations of moving out of your parent's house completely. Years ago when I tried to do the same thing, my parents went berserk. Where will you work once you're back in Sweden?

Guliver: You should have joined us sooner  :)

Thank you Shadow.97, I found this forum through one of Maher's torrents of MS windows. Thinking back, that must have been ages ago, but it took years between finding the torrent and actually visiting this forum.
