Unknown location (problem with geolocation)

See original GitHub issue

Just came across, and of course, it doesn’t work (by default) for me (I did learn about all of the options when coming here).


$ curl
>>>    _  _    ___  _  _        
>>>   | || |  / _ \| || |         
>>>   | || |_| | | | || |_         
>>>   |__   _| |_| |__   _|         
>>>      |_|  \___/   |_|       
>>>   404 UNKNOWN LOCATION: Seattle47.4902, Washington, United States   
Weather report: Oymyakon


 We were unable to find your location 
 so we have brought you to Oymyakon, 
 one of the coldest permanently inhabited locales on the planet. 

It looks like the code sort of discovered (but didn’t parse correctly) the location.
