Hi Seth,

I use ipcheck.py.  It checks the output of 'ifconfig' to see if the
public IP address has changed.  I run it periodically from a cron
script.  It was a little painful to set up (entirely my own fault), but
now that it's working it's essentially hassle-free.  It handles both
Dynamic DNS and Static DNS.  Last I checked it was listed on
www.dyndns.org and had a fairly high user-satisfaction score.
