I have noticed something strange. The location that appears on topix posts doesn't say "Dover, Tn" like it should. It jumps all over the place.

It's the wind making the power flicker. Every time it does your DSL box resets. Get a UPS for it.

It's a holdover from the early days of the good old Cold War when the plan in the event of war with the USSR all U.S.A. radio stations were to start shifting frequencies and using some other station's call letters to throw the (non-existent) Soviet long range bombers' RDF navigation off.

I don't think so. Topix just reads the location of the server that you are going through. It doesn't control it.
