View Full Version : New Script!
January 20th, 2001, 02:24
I just finished work on my "BASE 10 Convertor script" it will convert a BASE 256 address (ie. http://123.456.78.90) into a BASE 10 address (ie. http://2093502042/). If you look at my signiture you may notice the BASE 10 addy. I got this idea from woofcat :-)
Here is the script http://www.koolplace.com/base.phtml

What's the point of BASE 10 addys when the invention of URLs was for overcoming the difficulties of remembering IP numbers? I'm guessing so that you don't have to type the periods....? Seems kinda silly to me... but I might use it. :p

what is the point of other crap we do yah know. like overclocking 1.2 gigahertz processors. who needs it? i know all of you don't do that but i do know a lot of people that do. it is just cool

I see many email spammers converting to base 10 to make it harder to track them down... So, Koolguy or anyone else can you create a script doing the opposite? :) I mean going from base 10 to a normal address or base 256.

oh yeah never thought about that good idea. it should be too hard. just allow input without the dots cause i see it shows you both when you put in the ip

an algorithm could be written... heck, i had the foward conversion built into my control panel a year ago, its doable, but totally pointless .. and 4 lines of code :)

Well actually I am building functions into the script that will allow you to convert base 10 to base 256. I didn't create the script for real practical use, just to show how base 10 addy's work. Along with the script im gonna include information on base 10 and 256 and how to stop spammers.

So is it possible for email addresses like yomama@8888888888 ?

uhm, if the mail server can be setup to accept emails for an ip address instead of name based pointing, it should work

They can be converted back look.
