I knew something was wacky .. but it sure took a long time to figure out just what. I use an ancient Dell computer with WinXP on my network to run the OpenDNS and DynDNS updater clients. Everything else on my system is running Linux but these programs only work under XP, so .. whine. Their job is to monitor my current IP address and send updates to OpenDNS and DynDNS for me if they ever change so that you can find me on the internet and so I can find only good stuff on my connections.
