Here are several badly-written scripts from various stages in my programming career.   I decided to add them to a “Tools” section on my site, because they are handy sometimes.


Arin Info – Ever wonder who the owner of an IP is?  You can use this to query  the American Registry for Internet Numbers (ARIN) to see what company or organization owns the ip address.  It’s not very sexy, but it works. UPDATE: They’ve changed their site and now use REST web services.  I need to redo my scripting to take advantage of that.

Basic Browser Info – Want to know what your browser is telling websites when you visit them?  This script gives you a basic idea of what’s sent by your browser.

More Advanced (and somewhat more accurate) Browser Sniffer – THIS IS OLD AND OUTDATED, AND NO LONGER WORKS… This one was developed for use where the Java VM needed to be known.  It required Microsoft Java, so if you have Sun, it will tell you that you need to get Microsoft Java.  Trust me, that’s not my opinion…
