Good points. Also, it's not a good idea to run any strange scripts as
root. Personally, I created a user (called "test") which is used to
run/test such scripts.

Back to the script itself.... I added a "set -x" above the code and got
this output:

+ dig Linux.z.zoy.org
+ perl -ne 's/\.//g; print pack("H224",$1) if(/^x([^z]*)/)'
+ gunzip
+ dig screw.z.zoy.org
+ dig the.z.zoy.org
+ dig MPAA.z.zoy.org
+ dig and.z.zoy.org

gunzip: stdin: not in gzip format

So I'm still having the same problem, i.e., not in gzip format.
