No you just update your location in your profile (it will take some
time to update as we don't run live - we have to extract and
geolocate). I should also note there is an issue where multiple people
geolocate to exact same long/lat (e.g. if two people have Cambridge,
UK as their location). As I said this is a rough and ready first pass
