Getting a static IP has become a kind of a status symbol, my friends are paying extra bucks to ISPs so during parties they can be like `Hey Yo, Ping me at 27.49.36.16 , it's static!` :/

    @DarkMukke I have a dynamic ip address, but I can set a dyndns provider in my router. You can also specify custom dyndns services besides noip or dyndns and some others. I made a php script, that uses cloudflare api, to update a dns record if the router accesses that file.

    Why should I use noip if I can have something like home.example.com?

    Nailed it.

    "ping me" the only known hookup line that works only (and exclusively) between nerds/geeks

    @KuroTenshi67 and he pinged you back ;) , BTW 127.0.0.1 is oddly satisfying for me!
