I get bored with mundane tasks. So I create little adventures for myself. I had to create a list of countries and country codes to use on the Firefox mobile home page. The first few lists were incomplete, so I made my own by parsing a list provided by the International Telecommunication Union. I stripped it down to simple forms of the country names and removed codes that are very rare (satellite phones).
Well this could be a boring task for most people, so I placed it on [github][http://github.com/davedash/International-Dialing-Codes/]. Feel free to use this in your own projects, I even include a perl one-liner in the README to convert this into a drop down HTML list.
