I've noticed some ads on this site and others are pretty targeted to me. I usually see stuff from Indianapolis, and I would guess lots of other people don't.

How do the ads know where I am? I figure it has something to do with IP addresses. Is there a database out there that has the locations? Usually when I do a whois I end up with who owns the IP address.
