Push growl notifications to Prowlapp with telnet

Assuming that you know what I am talking about, here is how it was done:

> cat ~/bin/http_get.sh
 if [ $# -ne 4 ]
 echo "Example: `basename $0` test.com 80 test.com / | telnet"
 exit 1
 echo "open $1 $2"
 sleep 2
 echo "GET $4 HTTP/1.0"
 echo "User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv: Gecko/20070515 Firefox/"
 echo "Host: $3"
 sleep 2
 > ~/bin/http_get.sh www.prowlapp.com 80 www.prowlapp.com '/publicapi/add?apikey=YOUR_PROWL_KEY_GOES_HERE&application=dah&event=doo' | telnet
 telnet> Trying

Thanks to this tonycode.com blog post for the script idea with telnet.
