Find Location by IP Address

MaxMind provides a free service to lookup the Hostname, Country Code, Country Name, Region, Region Name, City, Postal Code, Latitude, Longitude, ISP, Organization, Metro Code, and Area Code of up to 25 IP addresses per day at: http://www.maxmind.com/app/locate_ip I'd seen this before, and I know there are a number of services out there that do similar, but I noticed the MySQL site lists MaxMind as the provider they use to determine the closest location for downloading files, so I thought I'd list it here.
