I have DNS named, *dynamic*, routable IP -- thanks to the good folks at
dyndns.org. The only bad thing is that the reverse DNS isn't consistent.
I'm still not entirely comfortable getting e-mail sent directly to me,
which is why I POP most of it.

That would be nice. Unfortunately, the choices at swbell (DSL) are
either one dynamic IP ($40/month), or 5 (!) static IPs, at $80/month +
$100 installation + $100 to set up the DNS (no, not register a domain,
*just* to configure the DNS). (And yes, they want the $100 installation
even though I already have everything set up and all they would have to
do is allocate the IP addresses.)
