Because I said so.

Or maybe your providers router is in ... Ithaca.

you are not using dial-up. Internet Service Providers use different connectivity mechanisms (dial, cable, satellite etc...) so your ISP utilizes existing networks and act as an aggregation point for services, in your case aggregation point is in Ithaca NY

Sounds logical. However, my neighbor and I both have Time Warner RR and his says Utica even though we are both in New Hartford. Still wondering. No biggie. I'll still get to sleep tonight.

You have no clue what you are talking about. No matter what carrier,
or service provider you have, the last transfer station between
your hardware and the station issues an ip, and this is where
the address comes from. It just depends on what station the last ping was off of depends on what the address will show. Saying that
only cable uses the station in Ithaca is preposterous.

Your own statement, ISP utilizes existing networks.
Topix servers suck, most times they don't pick up the actual last ping. My address for topix is Ithaca, but the last pinging point for my ISP is actually Whitesboro, and I am in north utica. So never trust the topix address.

You heard wrong. Cookies, are data stored on your PC from
a web page, cookies have absolutely nothing to do with an IP.
Who ever you heard this from, has no clue what they are talking about.

Don't say it like it sounds, clean it up so it sounds nice. Life is short, they must look for happiness in something other then what they are depressed about.I see kids walking around depressed,
truly a sad thing. They have it made and have not even experienced half of their lives, can't understand why they focus so much energy into one area and become depressed. Make sure your there for support when you have time.
