Tweet my ip ( see your machine ip on twitter )

STAT=`curl`; curl -u YourUserName:YourPassword -d status=$STAT
Easy way to find your computers IP in one place, ie, twitter It suppress the need of dyndns clients and remembering the complex names they give you. I put it inside KAlarm ( the cron GUI for KDE, ubuntu), to update my ip every 3 minutes. I did not add the cron statements to keep the code clean.
Sample Output
