Geolocation via IP address is a guess, and often a bad guess.  One of
my servers is in Washington (state) but various geolocation algorithms
place it in Utah or Texas - that's roughly the same error as placing
Rochdale in Greece.

Tim said his whois is correct, so "whois" on
the command line implies that his server is in Belvidere Illinois,
a mere three hundred miles from geolocation's guess.
