    Site Accessing my demographics

    I don't know if this is far fetched or what, but I just stumbled across this site:

    http://twentyfour.com/

    Its one of those buy my URL sites, but the advertising banner was for my home town Madison, MS. Madison is not that large of a town, so I can't understand why someone would use a direct advertising strategy like that unless it reads my zipcode or something off my computer. Is this possible? If you go to the site be careful. There are pop ups out the ying yang.
