     I've been using dns/inadyn for well over a year now, and it seems to
be quite reliable.  It also keeps track of the number of days that have
passed since the last time it actually sent an update to dyndns.org, so
that it will send an "update" in time to beat the 30-day limit.  I have
an application that, with a little luck, runs indefinitely, so this feature
is one I appreciate. :-)
