I need to sense when the IP address on my cable modem changes.  To
complicate the matter I have a Linksys router setting between my
internal network (using NAT) and my cable modem.

I'm thinking that the only way to do this is to send a http request for
the status page and then scrape the current IP address off of the html
returned.  But since I want this to run unattended on my home server
that runs at run level 3 I don't want a gui. 

Can I run the browser as a nonvisual object?  Thanks.
