Hello all.. There seems to be a lot of requests for people wanting to identify a surfer on-the-fly to determine his/her country of origin.
I have compiled a list of ip addressed blocks which can determine a surfer's country of origin.
Why would someone want this? To display certain information based on a surfer's country. Certain advertisements for certain audiences for example.
I finished coding this and thought you m ay be interested to test it. It's working on a local server now, but I may push it to a site I have if there is greater interest. (note as of 3/18/03 1:53 am CST (GMT-6) this is a working address, however it's a DHCP assigned one so the link may go dead in a day or two)
Give it a test drive for yourself:
Of course I can't guarantee with 100% cetrainty that a surfer will bee in the country I say he/she is in, but it's a fairly accurate gage to determine location.
