Me: Good morning. Whassup?
Him: Hi Mike. This is Joel from Swagger(something) Corp. You were trying out one of our products recently...
Me: Do you have any idea what time it is?
Him: This shows you're in Texas, so Colorado time?
Me: I'm in Australia, mate.
Him: (long silence) I can fix that record for you.
Me: Thank you. I'd appreciate it.
It was 2AM. This tells me that they're using geo-ip mapping to determine my location. And I'm being proxied through Starlink's ground station in Texas. In this day and age you've got to do better than take the location of an IPV4 address for granted, even if you've spent good money on the "more up to date" mapping. I suppose he also didn't see the phone number he (actually his CRM software) dialed; which would have at least indicated that I probably wasn't in Texas. That assumption can't be trusted either. Due to the magic of VOIP, my "landline" shows up as a Wollongong phone number - about an hour away. And I could have just as easily had an Adelaide local phone number (a couple thousand kilometers away), but I thought Wollongong was a better choice for my needs.
