There is a good list of clients at
<http://www.dyndns.org/services/dyndns/clients.html>. Many of them have a
mode where they ask some machine on the net (from a list, not just some
random box) what IP they're connecting from, and use that as the IP. It's
handy for when you have an ISP-supplied NAT box that you're using.
