	damaged-world.net is on a line that is paid to be 'static'. 

	It reverses to "adsl-67-116-35-49.dsl.sntc01.pacbell.net"
	beacuse I haven't bothered to start the fight with PacBell about
	setting a "proper" reverse. 

	Now, you tell me, is adsl-67-116-35-49.dsl.sntc01.pacbell.net a
	"dynamic" address or not?

	And how does AOL know?
