ip_convert is a cheap way to obfuscate a URL, or to unobfuscate an URL that was "hidden" by the decimalization of the site name.
!! The conversion from decimal to IP/FQDN no longer seems to work I haven't had a chance to look to see what changes have been made to nslookup that stopped this from working. !!
Usage: ip_convert < hostname|IP|decimal >
ex: a) ip_convert www.yahoo.com
b) ip_convert 22.214.171.124
c) ip_convert 3515032734
a) convert a hostname into it's decimal equivalent.
b) convert a dotted-quad IP into it's decimal equivalent.
c) convert a obfuscated URL back to it's IP/FQDN
