Hi guys,

I'm investigating the use of geolocation auto-detection by IP-address of 
xfce4-weather-plugin, and here's the result of the HTTP request:

   <CountryName>United States</CountryName>

That's far, far, far away from me and not my IP. Where does it get that 
IP from?

In fact, I haven't got one usable result yet. Do I need extra parameters?

 From weather-search.c:
   /* is our download server that runs mod_geoip
    * with the database */
   weather_http_receive_data ("", "/geolocation",
                              proxy_host, proxy_port,
                              cb_geolocation, data);

Now this one works fine:

And to be sure I've tried another one and it works correctly too:

Only does not. Is this service still supported / 
maintained? If so, can someone please look at it and fix it?
