After several days of constantly dynamic IP, it was good to get up this morning and find I still had the same pubic IP address that I about eight hours previously. That may not seem significant to most people but when you go though half a dozen IP addresses in the span of a few hours, it’s nice to see some stability.

I checked Microsoft’s Knowledge Base and found that you can reserve any address that’s within the scope of the subnet, even if it’s outside the scope of address the DHCP server dishes out. That’s good to know. I went ahead and created a reservation for Frank N. Webb in Bullwinkle’s DHCP scope. That should give me a little more stability. At least Bullwinkle won’t try to give it a new IP address by accident.

I went through my genealogy pages today and fixed all the html and links (I hope). I haven’t upload them to their respective servers yet. I may as well go an update of the content first. I’m taking a break to eat some dinner (smells good) and watch some TV. I’ll work on uploading and cleaning up throughout the week. By the way, as of 5:30 PM today, I still have the same public IP address.

  1. the same pubic IP address that I about eight hours previously
    Thank you, Mandy, for pointing out my little spelling error. I obviously meant “public” and now the question is whether or not I should correct it. It’s late; I’ll make a decision tomorrow, maybe.
