Site Went Down, Here's Why...

I'm sure most of you know, I host this website from my house now on my personal server. At your house, you have (likely) a DHCP Lease for the IP address you use. This means you are in a pool, and it rotates when the lease expires and you get a new IP address. This is what happened last night.

The easy solution would be to get a static IP address, but my ISP wants just a bit too much money for a static IP address. So every now and then, I will have to manually update the IP address when it switches over.

I may have to break down and just get the static IP, but I really do not want to lol.
