Why do you want that?  I ask because I think DynDNS is a better
solution to the problem I think you are trying to solve.  Sign up for
a free Dynamic DNS account at http://www.dyndns.org.  Install the
'ipcheck' or some similar tool and configure it properly.  Then your
system will notify dyndns of your address and they publish that via
DNS.  For an example, see my domain name.


Python is executable pseudocode. Perl is executable line noise.
