here's a comparison between the free of charge (gpl) GeoLite Country and
the commercial GeoIP Country version

Accuracy seems to be 0,3% different and update interval differs. Don't

to MaxMind's product. My intention only has been to understand the
bridge relay startup errors. I was mistaken about the geoip db format
even I rtfm.
