you're now looking at the proud owner of a shiny new dyndsn.org hostname!

many thanks.  i feel silly not having known this was available for free.
this will make things much easier (but it goes against my mantra:  "the
triumph of hard work over common sense!"  ;-)

there are, however, some questions remaining:

	- this still doesn't let me do a sanity check on my internal
	  servers, since nated servcies are not reachable by the WAN IP

	- i remember seeing a post about secure dynamic dns updates, but
	  i can't find it now.  i checked the logs, and there's no
	  indication from ez-ipupdate as to whether it's using http or
	  https.  i know that dyndns.org can support both, and i'd
	  REALLY like it to be secure...  is that the default?  is it
	  even supported?

	- i also remember seeing a post about multiple hostname updates.
	  as far as i can see, that's not supported either.  has there
	  been any movement on this?  i don't suppose it would be to hard,
	  at least on the php end...  if no-one steps up, i might take
	  a look at it.
