#109 is bad too because other notations for IPs are valid.
Here is one example:
# Find out the IP of example.com
$ dig +short example.com A
# Convert it into another notation
$ python2 -c "print 192*256**3 + 0*256**2 + 43*256**1 + 10*256**0"
# Demo, just to prove that this really works
$ ping 3221236490

Oh and *then* there is IPv6.
Dear Peter Krumin, I know its boring but please take a look at the specs from time to time, especially if you want to publish something like this. This I-don't-care-if-I-violate-the-standard attitude that we see so often these days (especially but not exclusively in corporate environments) really bugs me because in the end we all suffer from it. Right?

I love to read science books. They make my day and I get ideas for awesome blog posts, such as Busy Beaver, On Functors, Recursive Regular Expressions and many others.
Take a look at my Amazon wish list, if you're curious about what I have planned reading next, and want to surprise me. :)
