Hmm, my linode is in Fremont, CA? I could have sworn it was in the Dallas, TX data center. Either it migrated at some point or I was wrong about which zone I picked a few years back. :D
According to my email logs it was definitely Dallas in 2013-2014, but Fremont in June 2017.
Ah! Now I remember, I created a new instance at one point with new operating system and migrated everything over manually. Must've put the new one in the new DC.
damn cloud and forgetting where things are
