>I'd love to do something like this. I have loads of little snippets sitting
around my local and remote machine, just begging to be tidied up and used as

<http://scripts.iewebs.com/nslookup/> (to stop all those nasty packet monkeys
picking up on your WHOIS search for that oh-so-clever domain name :).
And I'm sure that Donncha and the other PHP/Perl heads have plenty of those
little things too - useless in their own right, but handy out...
