Correction: it _requires_ Java. It _asks_ for your address. It seems
like it'd work fine if you gave it your neighbor's address. :-)
I noted that I got wildly varying numbers on a laptop and an iPhone (there
is also an iPhone app) and the iPhone app doesn't ask for an address. Both
on the same wifi, and the numbers were off by a lot.
