Geolocation in the forum

By Philipp Lenssen

I'm playing around with an IP to location feature for the forum. Now when you click on a name you can see in brackets the country (based on the last post IP). Sometimes however the country is missing, and sometimes the PHP5 script returns an error. I'm using this API and binary file: http://www.maxmind.com/app/geoip_country I previously tried this but it returns empty recordsets on IPs I tried with: http://ip-to-country.webhosting.info/ I'd like to know if it shows right for your name. Also, if anyone knows of other good IP2location services...
