There's been traffic to and from the list pretty consistently. Have

There're many options under discussion:
I'd appreciate if the PageKite folks could chime in, as they've had
some interesting discussions lately. Other options are also under
development, including FBuddy, which tries to sidestep the entire
issue and uses other services to act as static IPs, to find the
current dynamic IP. That still needs a lot of work, though, it's a
bit more involved than I had originally anticipated.
Does this help answer any of your questions?
