Is that the real name of the town? And it is in the Philippines? C'mon, there are only a few thousand islands, how hard can it be...lol. Is it a nick name, it might be a shipping center, or a large rail center. Lots of freight, lots of pallets. Just a guess.

Hmm, I googled Pallet town. I found this:

 

Pallet Town (Japanese: „Éě„āĶ„É©„āŅ„ā¶„É≥ Masara Town) is located in western Kanto and serves as the hometown of Red, the protagonist of the Generation I games, as well as several other notable Pok√©mon Trainers who begin their Pok√©mon journeys in Kanto. Professor Oak's Laboratory is in Pallet Town that is used to research Pok√©mon.

 

It all makes sense now, it's a pokemon thing. My kids drove me nuts with those cards!

How's this for a useless post: I switched my location to Pallet Town after Oliver switched his to Extraterrestial.It is fitting for a Pikachu! The English version of Pokemon went with a color/art theme for all of the town names to kinda match the original XD. dancinbunnydancinbunny

Nice to think I might have provided inspiration to a aspiring violinist!

(This post = 7 points on the useless scale.)

I guessed one could figured the approximate location of a member by looking at the time of his/her posts in comparison with other members' post. e.g., The fiddlerman is in eastern time zone so is oliver, anathama, kakashi540 is in pacific time zone and so am I, Pikachu is in eastern area as well as confirmed by the fiddlerman. Daniel's in the Philipines for sure. I guessed pikachu like to play games with uslaugh. BTW, I didn't mean to leave my location out, I didn't find a spot where I could list it.dazed

Why is it that most members do not post location?

Security?

"Nebraska" for instance, is hardly an information leak cool

Must be the growing suspicion of the internet.

I don't like to have a lot of information on the internet. >__< Call it paranoia, but I'm not a fan of everyone knowing all there is to know about a person without ever meeting them.

I think you're right now days people are scared to put any information in public.

I think it's cool to see where everyone is from. This forum is like our own little world wide neighborhood.

I've listed my location, but my surname isn't really ''Hanson".

@ Pky - I am completely Swedish but only because I became a citizen while I lived there. I am born and raised in USA but moved to Sweden after first living 6 years here with my Swedish wife. Both of my moms parents were Italian and my dads mother was Polish and father was Russian.

So that probably makes me a mutt.

If you go to the top of this page and find a link called "Profile" you will be able to enter your location there. Appreciate you doing it as you may start a trend.

Italian, Polish and Russian  = Pierre? Now I am confused. My Dad's parents were Scottish and German, my Mom's parents were English. I too am a mutt! With my middle name, David Cameron, I am the British Prime Minister!

 

Still working on The Star Spangled Banner. I was confused and kept trying to play the beginning part at the repeat. The second time around. I did not notice the bracket above stating 1 and 2. It just was not making any sense...lol. I guess I should pull my head out of my butt and take a look around once in a while!

After years of blogging I've come to the conclusion that unless you're giving out your entire name (and are listed in local phone directories, etc.) and/or your personal numbers, people won't be able to arrive on your doorstep unannounced, nor will they be able to steal your identity. It's much more Urban Legend than Actual Fact. You should be more worried about what your financial institution does with their paperwork or a disgruntled employee at your workplace - those are more likely to cause you identity troubles.

 

Besides, it's pretty cool to be at a boat show in another state and have someone walk up and say, "You're Doryman, aren't you? And this must be Mrs. Doryman. We read your blogs!" OH is a builder/restorer of wooden boats, and a bit of a Luddite in some respects - he likes to know that the people he corresponds with online are actual people, and not "characters".

Do you have any idea how many people ask me, "Are you fiddlerman?"

OK, maybe it's because it says FiddlerMan.com on my cap.embarassed

Actually, it's super easy to find people online. A few google searches and some educated guesses can turn up a lot of information. http://lifehacker.com/329033/h.....one-online

You that would be a great idea for us Fiddlerman fans. We all need T-shirts and hats. I would would definitely be wearing the hat.

Only if your listings are current smile Only one entry for me, and it's old. It is disturbing to see my former phone number listed when I paid good money to keep it unlisted.
