[nSLUG] Do It Yourself with dynamic DNS services

I've been using dyndns.org <http://dyndns.org> for a while with an Eastlink 
connection- I'd always understood that because of NATing, Aliant IP's are 
not available from the Internet.

You can set up an smtp daemon and configure dyndns to forward emails to your 
server, all for free.

The only hook is that if you're a residential eastlink customer, you're not 
supposed to be hosting web sites, etc. 

Also, I think the upload speed on cable modem is something like 900K. Divide 
that up amongst several concurrent users and it's quite slow.

I've used OLM.net <http://OLM.net> in the past for web hosting and been 
quite pleased with the offerings, price and support.
