Thanks for that Frank.

I've had contacts from Akamai and a couple of others off-list now. I've 
also checked MaxMind - their database appears to be up to date as well.

I can't check Google at this second, as I'm based in the UK - I'll be 
setting something up for such tests tonight or tomorrow, but I seem to 
remember that we've previously spoken to them about it.

Thanks,

Chris
