I have been getting a great deal of interest in the IP-to-Country data that I have been working on over the last few years. However, I have had to take this data down from my site.
- The bandwidth costs are starting to become noticeable
- My old hardware is starting to creak under the weight
- There are commercial sources for this data, and frankly, I say more power to them if they can make money of this; I sure haven’t
It’s been a depressing week here in the Newest Industry Factory, and we are starting to have to dim the lights in some corners, turn off some of the machines, and [gulp!] consider other drastic measures.
To paraphrase the Bare Naked Ladies: “All this food ain’t free”.
I apologize for the inconvenience, and hope that I can re-activate these pages in the future.
UPDATE: GrabIP is now back up, but limited to 5 requests in a 24-hour period.
