GeekTools SuperWhois V3.0 is up...
Hello, We've put the latest version (V3.0) of GeekTools SuperWhois up on www.geektools.com. Currently, we've only replaced the web version so that we can debug it easily (with your help) before releasing the *nix source, and the Windows client. Major changes: You can over-ride the default server, and select a specific whois-server to query. It digs down as far as it can automatically. So, for example, with Australian ip addresses, it will query the Telstra database if appropriate. You can add whois server specific parameters (like "host" at NSI). We now dig down into rwhois servers if we know they exist. The only one set up so far is the Exodus one. If you know of any additional *functioning* rwhois servers, please send details to firstname.lastname@example.org. We now query some web based cc-tld whois servers where no port 43 machine is available, and parse the data. We ignore those that are so complicated that we can't be sure of the format. Help screens are available. As always, you're restricted to 50 queries a day per ip address, unless you convince us of your need in a friendly email. And finally, we're still open to suggestions for additional services to query through the proxy. -- Rodney Joffe CenterGate Research Group, LLC. http://www.centergate.com "Technology so advanced, even we don't understand it!"
