This is Nikos. He doesn't read responses properly, doesn't do his
research, and has (by his own admission) an iron head that doesn't let
information cross it lightly. Yes, he reached his conclusion on a
sample size of one.

Oh, and just for laughs, I tried a few of my recent mobile IP
addresses in the GeoIP lookup. All of them quoted Melbourne someplace,
some in the CBD and some out in the suburbs, but all vastly wrong, and
places I haven't been. But I'd never expect it to be accurate on
those.
