how to update the maxmind db in Geo Location lookup script?

Path Finder

Again, very good app.

How can we update the database? I assume ~/bin/GeoLiteCity.dat is what needs to be updated? What needs to be downloaded from MAXMIND and put where?

I believe you can update the existing GeoLiteCity.dat with the files available from maxmind
http://www.maxmind.com/en/geolite
unzip the latest binary in the directory with the existing .dat file.

I am using the GeoASN app and the files reside in a different location.
