DynDNS would work on a Newton, except that I also run a background process
that monitor my dynamic IP address. As soon as it changes, the process
contacts the DynDNS server to update their database so that they always
point to my server. There is no such software on the Newton. Without this, a
user would have to manually monitor the IP address given to its network by
his provider and then upgrade the DynDNS database. Doable, but you might
have your system unavailable from time to time...

flat adj.: 1. [common] Lacking any complex internal structure. "That bitty
box has only a flat filesystem, not a hierarchical one." The verb form is
flatten. 2. Said of a memory architecture (like that of the VAX or 680x0)
that is one big linear address space (typically with each possible value of
a processor register corresponding to a unique core address), as opposed to
a `segmented' architecture (like that of the 80x86) in which addresses are
composed from a base-register/offset pair (segmented designs are generally
considered cretinous).
