Calgary

At some point in 2012, probably December, my ISP, TekSavvy, changed my IP address to a Calgary-based block even though I live in Vancouver. They assure me a computer decided this, and this can't be changed. Here are the problems (very minor, but still irritating) this causes:
  • Foursquare defaults searches from their website to Calgary
  • Searching in Google for businesses shows me the map for Calgary, not Vancouver
  • Using SpeedTest.net, the app defaults to Salmon Arm. (What?)
I had a conversation with friends about it on Twitter. https://twitter.com/sillygwailo/status/277279682825687040 I don't think there's anything I can do about it except grumble.
