Is there a reason to check more often than that?

yeah, that's my idea, too. Be able to watch the network change, and also
watch how a particular router may change.

One other thing I forgot to mention:
I'm using the geocode that goes along with the IP for each router. That may
or may not be accurate. Is there a reasonable way to get the info from each
router operator? I don't know if a message signed by the public key is
feasible or not. Perhaps getting confirmation by contacting the contact
address? But not all routers have that.
