The d.net addresses points to a dyndns service, and I can change the .net
addresses easily. I don't know if this is possible with .org also or who
handles those, though. Do we have a debian dyndns service? I am happy with
dyndns.org, but you have to actively change the address, otherwise it will
point to the old address, which is bad when you receive email on that
address. A long time ago I used a service (ddts?) where you had to update
