HI,
Somewhere I saw a web site that you can register with and everytime you login or get a new ip from the DHCP server, the website would be updated and friends could find you by machine name. That way you keep your hostname.
Anyone know where this might be?

www.dynip.com (http://www.dynip.com) is one of the many. there are a few others. www.dyndns.com (http://www.dyndns.com) is another i believe.

i like dynip tho. very easy to configure. and its fairly cheap. 35\year for the minimum package, which includes a "yournamehere.dynip.com" host name.

www.tzo.com (http://www.tzo.com) is one of the other (original, I think) places for dynamic IP/hostname mapping.
