Pretty much what I wrote in a blog post about that, except I don't
understand IPv6 well enough to assert it's usefulness in this context.
That's good to know. My hassles so far have all been related to my

Thanks, folks, helping me get about as much of this as I am likely to
grasp. I'll be keeping my eyes open for more Net chatter about
decentralized DNS.
