> Nikos, this is the point where you (again) loose credibility on this
list.  You asked this question about how to find the location where someone
is browsing your site from.  You got several answers.  The bottom line is
that you can't know that location unless the browsing machine does its own
geo location (think cell phones) or the user has provided his location via
some form.

So, now, a week or two later you come back with the same question, as if it
hasn't already been answered -- but you give it a 'red herring' kind of
twist.  As I understand it, you found a new module that you think will do
something that all parties answering this question before explained that
this is not possible.  And you switch up to say "why can't I load this
thing?".  Well, I don't why you can't load it, but I don't want to help
because it doesn't help you solve your stated problem.  Your stated problem
is done.  move on.
