Alternative to http://automation.whatismyip.com/n09230945.asp for Infopanel screenlet
 
I have been using the infopanel screenlet for a couple of years and the external IP sensor relies on the following url:-

http://automation.whatismyip.com/n09230945.asp

Unfortunately this went offline a few months back and i cannot find an alternative that works with info panel, it seems to require a link with a .asp extension. Does anyone know of a working alternative or a workaround that will get an ext IP to display in infopanel??

If you can make your "info panel" (whatever that is) application parse any other URI try grabbing the IP address from other sites like http://icanhazip.com/ or http://ifconfig.me/ip or http://myip.dnsomatic.com/ ?

Unspawn, I was all prepared to give you a flaming for ignoring the fact I specified that Infopanel is a screenlet and that I required a link with an .asp extension BUT, I stand humbled by the fact the link

http://icanhazip.com/

works beautifully in this instance, and it is similar to my favorite cheezburger referenced site!!

Thanks for your help
