You can explore and update your IP address from Ruby or the command line.
The command-line program can be configured to run on an interval using cron.

Checking out your afraid.org configuration


% updateafraid -user YOURUSERAME -password YOURPASSWORD
You have 5 domains:
yourdomain.com  (209.6.22.66)
