I'm alive!!!! :evil

For those who don't know, I'm keenmaster's sister.

She doesn't have a static IP though, so that makes things a little annoying. She'd have to PM everyone her current IP or something.
Is there a way I can change that? It's not like it would be too much of a pain to send everyone my IP, but it would be kind of nice not to have to do that.

Well, you'd have to pay for a static IP from the phone company.

I sent you another PM.
I flermmed the plootash just like you asked.

You could set up a dynamic DNS which gives you a constant URL (i.e. melierax.dyndns.org) that updates each time your IP address changes. There are some good free options out there. I used to use dyndns.org but the conditions on the free account changed so you have to log in once a month or something. Can't remember which one I switched to at the moment. Didn't bother setting it up last router change.

Figured I'd resurrect this thread to announce that myself and at least TroubelsomeKeen (maybe a couple others?) are going to be online for some Netkeen today, 8/16. I'll be on discord between 4-7pm PST, if anyone wants to join in 8)
