Hello,\n I'm wanting to develope a script for ip change notification. Since my \nbox doesn't change cleanly, i'd like to run this script from cron say every \n30 minutes. First thing it does is checks the IP, if it's the same as 30 \nminutes ago it pings one of about ten sites from a list in random order. If \nthat works, everything is well exit. If not meaning the ip test reports the \nsame as 30 minutes ago but pinging that list returns nothing then run three \ncommands, obtain the new ip, save it, and send an email to a designated \naddress.\n I'm not sure if i should do this in shell or perl, as of right now i \nhave the ip address printing, but i believe i'd have to do something with \nsaving state between script loads, this i've never done. If anyone has any \nsuggestions i'd appreciate them.\nThanks.\nDave.
