Following on from my “where am I posting” a few weeks ago, this morning I notice a very weird reaction to the Geo-IP issues of tracking people’s location. I use Google Reader for my RSS feed tracking, and this morning it has decided to put all the Google supplied text into German.

Now that is just plain daft.

Even if I am actually in Germany, does it mean I then want my computer to switch to German? Of course not!

Quite why Google would switch my RSS reader over to the German language completely defies understanding.


The ianVisits website has been running now for just over a decade, initially as a news blog, later adding the events listings guide to the offbeat and geeky events in London.

Advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It’s very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of the ianVisits website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what IanVisits provides, then please support the website here.

Thank you
