Thanks for your work so far! Discussions about inputs (bah, propagation's evil) and who'll write what aside:

The only canonical ‘dig’ that I know & love comes from the BIND project, as installed by ‘bind:utils’. Does inxi explicitly require this ‘dnsutils’ version? Is it a fork? Patched? Separate implementation?

I think I have a ‘hddtemp’ package banging about somewhere.

Curl's closure is bigger than that of wget (~210 MiB vs. ~127 MiB), but it's probably smaller than wget+bind. Would curl alone cover all uses of wget+bind in the script? (‘I can't be bothered to dig through it’ is an acceptable answer.)

Kind regards,
