I have a server, nitpicking.com aka finknetwork.com.  I ALSO have a desktop
and a laptop computer, both of which I'd like to assign domain names to.

The server has a fixed address.  The desktop has a pretty darn fixed address
that hasn't changed in years, but is not guaranteed to remain the same.

The laptop moves from network to network, as you might expect.

As above.
