Change to what they call the "Static" host type. It's not really for
static IPs, but for IPs that change less than once a month. Longer TTL
on the zone records to reduce their server load, longer update timeout
to encourage you to use it in preference to the Dynamic host type. Works
great for me (I keep the same IP for as long as I keep the PPP session
up, which has been months in the past). You can transfer any existing
dyndns.org hostname back and forth between Static and Dynamic.
