so they won't allow requests by name?  didn't realize that was possible, and I 
a lot about DNS and the way internet traffic works.  If you use one the dynamic 
services like dyndns or dtdns then your ISP has no knowledge or control.  It 
not require you to run a dns server, it just updates an outside dns server with
your current IP address.  Clients on the 'net do a name lookup and the software
(IE, mozilla, etc) will do a connect by ip, that's just how it works.  Without 
seriously advanced packet filtering your ISP has no clue if your PC is being 
by IP or name, and I don't think any major ISP could justfiy the cost of a
server/router cluster powerfull enough to filter several hundred thousand
