Expanse, a Palo Alto Networks company, searches across the global IPv4 space multiple times per day to identify customers' presences on the Internet. If you would like to be excluded from our scans, please send IP addresses/domains to: [...]

For some bizarre reason, I moved from C++ to C#. Although the grammar seemed to be stuck at C# 7.3, but at least still easier to write than C++.

Cloudflare 的 GeoIP 真的是挫,所有中国 IP 都只能给个 CN,省市级数据完全没有。还得用额外的数据库去查。
