I collect the file name, size, file hash and other metadata related to
the file.
There is a GEO ID used to identify the client. I am not sure if it is
the KAD ID or User Hash or neither. I am not storing it currently, but
doing that should be a simple change
I do have IPs, and there are files matching the vista timer in Kad data
We can use that for the GEO mapping
