I don't know if this has occured to anyone else, but for some reason the last post I made in the Pro Wrestling forum brings up a German flag. Have I somehow posted in an alternate timeline where the Nazis WON?

It's not a big thing, but still threw me off a little.

EDIT: I posted it from an iPhone, just in case that has any bearing.

I think some IP space must have been reallocated recently and we had an old flag in the cache. Today it definitely belongs to the UK (O2, actually) but I can't speak for earlier days.

I stopped and restarted the process that maps IPs to countries and your post comes up with a UK flag now (it WAS Germany before).

We're coming up on 28 days since the name change, so I'd expect a Google update sooner or later that'll bring people to the "new" name. (Also, when that happens, you'll probably wish we were still going undiscovered!)
