Right. When I wasn't sure that it would ever be fixed, I poked around and 
found another company that would do that as well (for half the price of 
DynDNS's service:, but given 
how difficult it was to get Comcast to do something technical, I can only 
imagine what would've happened when I sent the invoice for that service to 
them and told them they owed me.  (my feeling is, I wouldn't need that 
additional pay service if they weren't disrupting my service to begin with, so 
they should pay for it). 

I'm sure they would've laughed at me, and I didn't really want to go to small 
claims court over it.
