asp vbscript

Is there any to find out what city (state or anything in that nature) that the user is from.  Some kind of script that will detect where the user that is visiting your page from.  
Perhaps using the user ip address to track down the information.
Any ideas?

The only thing you can do is to write a JAVA applet/ActiveX Control that will query the client's computer for the regional settings and time zone. However, I think that you may be sued if you'll do that.

Using IP may help yuo in a way that some ISPs get pool of IPs, but you will have to check all ISPs and their location and IP pool. I'm not sure they will give you that information.

Besides, if you'll look at other sites, they always ask you for your location, and you have to manually type it.
