I do the same, except with static IPs & DNS: <> is
my web server [with CMUCL-based apps behind Apache], mail server,
DNS primary, and main shell home [e.g., where I read news from
(though often remotely, via SSH, as at this moment)]. It & its
DSL modem [and the telephone answering machine & another small
BSD system] share a small UPS good for ~2 hours -- enough that
they've never lost power since I put in the UPS. [Before that,
though, they were crashing several times a month (or more!) due
to frequent "tiny" power outages of a few seconds to a minute.]

Beats me. As you demonstrate, given DynDNS one doesn't even need
a static IP anymore.
