Use whatismyipaddess instead of default

When you click an IP address for a user you get a pretty mundane result of the IP address. And it seems IPv6 addresses don't show anything at all! I know Xenforo uses http://whatismyipaddress.com/ and I think it would be a great addition to phpBB. The website has a fairly accurate IP geo location, shows the ASN as well as the ISP.

I hope that it is more accurate in the US that it is in the UK - it has my IP address as being over 70 miles away!

There are many more accurate lookup sites than that one.
