no you don't... the dreamhost example used the google ARIN allocation

note that this may still be 'wrong', but .. it's a different wrong. :)

But likely caused by exactly the same problem - with the distinction
between between GeoIP of the DNS server and GeoIP of the client itself.

(Keeping in mind that the DNS lookup could be occurring over IPv4,
especially in the first example)

except that the dreamhost example actually looked correct to me? (dreamhost
is in phx / lax or something similar... so a US answer seems on the ball)
