Locate The Instructables Servers !!! Answered

I have Firefox 3.0 and an add-on that tells me the location of the websites servers and displays it on Google maps, Here is what came up when i searched for instructables servers :
http://geotool.servehttp.com/?ip=72.249.66.26&host=www.instructables.com

Eric Has confirmed this location and he also says they wear 10 Gallon hats :D

No, it's in San Francisco. That's probably their ISP.
