Is it geekier to have looked up your address in the census survey database and used that instead? Cuz that's how I found my exact location.

    I was going to give you crap for this method, because it requires you to trust the gub'mint...

    ...Then I remembered who runs those GPS satellites I'm so fond of. D'oh.

    I suspect the truly geeky method would be to use celestial navigation techniques, at least for latitude. Longitude ... harder nut to crack; most of the good time sources are gov't controlled, and most ephemeris tables are generated by the gov't as well. (Heck, longitude has always been political anyway.)

    Being a paranoid government-conspiracy nut is hard work!
