Once we hit enter, the script is running, the first line should look familiar,
you can refer back to the script and see the echo.


Now I type in the "techsupportalert.com" IP address, we found earlier
and the location (down to the nearest city) is given.


NOTE:
If you don't type an IP address and just hit enter, the location of your pc/gateway (down to the nearest city) will be displayed.

This was a very simple, yet powerful script.
There are over 5,000 commands on a typical Linux system,
each with various options which allow you to do just about anything.
When used in conjunction with cron/crontab you can do
just about anything without even being there (Ha! Ha! Ha!)

If your not already scripting, give it a shot.
