Check if a .no domain is available

check_dns_no() { for i in $* ; do if `wget -O - -q http://www.norid.no/domenenavnbaser/whois/?query=$i.no | grep "no match" &>/dev/null` ; then echo $i.no "available" ; fi ; sleep 1 ;done }
Mostly for Norwegians, but easily adoptable to others. Very handy if you are brainstorming for a new domainname. Will only display the available ones.. You can usually do this better with dig, but if you dont have dig, or the TLD only have an online service to check with, this will be usefull..
