curl those funny IPv4 addresses - 127.1, 0177.1.1.1 and 16843009 are all now natively "understood" by curl

@bagder nice feature!

Do you let a script assign the artist name for pixabay image links btw? Because if so, it looks like it assumes the first line of their bio contains a 'real name', which in the case of the current image"s artist (TheDigitalArtist) does not seem to be the case?

@FiXato no, I copy the credits as the site itself proposes and it suggested this, so I kept it as-is

@bagder huh, fair enough :)
Thought it looked strange, but if that's how they want to be attributed, then who am I to argue :)

@bagder Nice! Those forms have always been entertaining to me and I was quite disappointed by a lot of software that wouldn't handle those.
One more reason why cURL is awesome!

@bagder I'm always amused when I start typing a ticket number into the browser address bar for autocompletion from history, say "1280", and Firefox is all "oh hey you wanted to visit right?"

Yes, good browser. *pat pat*
