My laptop changes IP often. I keep the hostname fixed though. I really
couldn't care less about the PTR record of the WaveLAN I'm currently on.

And, ugh, I just discovered it has a /etc/hosts with this and only this:

::1 hostname.domain hostname localhost.localdomain localhost

I gotta change that and see what happens. And why isn't that localhost6?
I thought that was the default... Now I'm confused.
