I'm using GeoCity by MaxMind, which is the best one I could find.
MaxMind is supposed to fall back to the country automatically.

Ok, that's the problem. It didn't find your IP address's location.

However, manually querying MaxMind for 208.64.242.18 or 208.64.242.22
returns "US,WA,Olympia,47.038700,-122.891998" so I guess I have a bug in
my code somewhere...

(Looks into cache...)
500 Can't connect to maxmind.com:8010 (connect: timeout)

Duh, I cached that... Shame on me... I removed this cache entry, if you
requery, you should be getting something better.

Thanks a lot for your report,
GFK's
