They've got me in Kannapolis.
I do have to tell you that my ip address is a bit tricky. My isp is
CTC, which is the local telco JUST for Heritage Wake Forest in this
area. They are based in Concord (hence the first C). When the
community was new, a lot of on-line directories had our phone numbers
mapped to our street addresses, but in Concord, despite the fact that
we DO have a 919 area code.
