    Hi Derek I'v just confirmed that we map the given IP to Auckland. We use a periodically updated 3rd party database for performing the lookup and checking with their current online lookup, the IP address does map to Wellington. However, we are on a timed update cycle for the database and I think we are a week or two away from updating the IP mapping database again at this point. I'll drop a request for an earlier update with my boss, in the meantime I hope that you'll be able to get by. If I remember correctly, you had a similar issue a month or two ago, right? Seems like the IP administrator down under is shuffling around the IP address for freely than the rest of the world :) Hope this help, at least as far as letting you know what is going on. Best regards Soren EQATEC Team

    Thanks S?ren. If you're a few weeks away from an update there is no need to do anything special for us. I can get by by filtering by IP in the meantime. I guess I'm unlike your other customers, because if they sold 100,000 iPhone apps they would not care exactly where they are. I happen to know exactly where my customers are. Regards, Derek
