I can confirm that our servers are in Dallas.

So Squid Labs/Instructables is in Calafornia, but the servers are in Dallas? Explain that.

I'm not very far from Dallas actually. couple minutes and I'm there.

. I think they moved the servers to the DFW area a month or so ago.

No, it's in San Francisco. That's probably their ISP.
