What makes your Topix display location change over time?

Topix gets your location dependent on the city which your Internet service connects from your provider, to the Internet. That's why it can change from city to city, or even across state lines such as in my case I'm actually in Portland, Oregon but a lot of times my location will show up as Vancouver, Washington which is just across the state line but really part of the metro area. BTW that's also why some "Topix cops" (the posters who take it upon themselves to try and point fingers at people for using fake/multiple screen names and things like that) accuse people wrongly as if it really mattered to begin with!
