When I use ExpressVPN my location, it seems, is not entirely 'randomized' - through ExpressVPN I connect to Yahoo through, say, Los Angeles, and I get a weather report for Taoyuan City, which is in Shanxi Province, PRC.
Last week I used ExpressVPN in Luang Namtha, Laos and got a weather report for Phongsaly, Laos.

My conclusion: Yahoo, and therefore probably OTHER PEOPLE, seem to know the country I'm in.
Is this a valid conclusion? I thought the idea of a VPN was that it made location entirely invisible.

And now, 2 hours later, and not for the first time, I cannot get online WITHOUT using my ExpressVPN.
Where is Cylon Central?

PS: Possibly related information - there is a black hole inside the ATM machine at the bank on the corner of Wenlinjie and Wenhuaxiang that eats bank cards.

In the light of the frightening news announced on gokunming today concerning the replacement of bank cards by facial recognition software, people may soon begin to vanish.
Too much connectivity. Carry pencils.

After my last communication with Earth 10 minutes ago I was, without warning, kicked off of ExpressVPN and suddenly found I could only get on through my local server again. Apparently I am either 1 or...0, in Something Else's computation.

Contacted ExpressVPN and they said:

Please note that we are aware of the problem, and our engineers are working on a fix. We are receiving the same issues with other customers too. We expect this to be resolved soon, but in the meantime, please connect to Japan or Hong Kong 1 server location.
