Why go to all the trouble of dialing the phone to order a pizza. Now you can Order Dominos Pizza via Command Line. Looks like this can’t work here in Canada though.  🙁  I think it would be cool to setup a crontab to automatically order a pizza for you on a schedule. 🙂 I can just imagine when this catches on and you call to ask a question about available toppings, they will suggest you have a look at the man page.
