Cody on the Web

I recently was shown a pretty handy website that is useful for determining your public IP address, even if you are on the command line. The URL to hit is Just hit the URL with curl or some other URL tool and you’ll get back your publicly routeable IP address in dotted decimal notation, no HTML to wade through.

$ curl     #your public IP shows up here. Sorry to whoever owns

More of the command line interface can be found on their website. Thanks to Patrick Mosca for the tip.
