Better location resolution outside the US introduced

Last night we put up a set of changes to better detect locations outside of the US. We still have trouble converting man non-US cities to a latitude/longitude, but have improved matters.

Before this update to the site a visitor from Adelaide would frequently see their location as "Adelaide, 05, Australia" instead of "Adelaide, South Australia, Australia" as it should have been.

Internally we count on Google to translate the city/postcode/country information you supply into a latitide/longitude. If Google Maps can translate your address, we should be able to do so as well. Except in cases where Google is disallowed from providing geocoding services.

Please let us know when you run into trouble with changing your location outside of North America. We are working to address everything we know about.
