indeed!  a quick survey shows that:

   ai (anguilla) has address 209.88.68.34
   cx (christmas island) has address 195.224.98.195
   dk (denmark) has address 195.215.15.2
   gh (ghana) has address 196.3.64.1
   im (isle of man) has address 194.72.124.29
   ky (cayman islands) has address 209.26.120.2
   ls (lesotho) has address 160.124.129.10
   md (moldova, republic of) has address 209.26.120.2
   nf (norfolk island) has address 203.12.249.101
   pf (french polynesia) has address 208.139.164.10
   tj (tajikistan) has address 209.77.250.4
   zr (zaire) has address 194.38.83.51

it's not that useful really, except perhaps to circumvent microsoft's
"intranet" security level.  :)

ps - i do enjoy pinging ls though, since then i know the program
works.  ;-)
