    Hi

    Can anyone not in the UK help me out with this. It's a bit of code i found that is supposed to display your location based on your IP address.

    I've tested myself in the UK and it says 'UK' but i'm not sure if its reading my IP address or my servers.

    If you could click on the link below and let me know if the location code it displays is correct to where you are
    location.php

    Many thanks,

    Tim

    [edit]I have two tail suppliers I use and one is saying DE for any IP in their range and the other is saying UK.

    costs about £0.001 per look up.

    Tells me I'm in ES, so I guess I'm still in Spain.
    I'm going to bookmark that page, it's a major advantage to know which country you wake up in on mainland Europe. Could be an app there. Refresh this page to find out where you are :)
