Add DDNS or alternative to the Fingbox

Because the Fingbox is always up, it would be a great device to monitor and report changes of the dynamic IP address assigned by your provider due to a modem reset. This would allow remote access to your home network after something like a power outage. You can achieve this with a free DDNS hostname provider, but most require you to run a software client on your PC or other device that is in an "up" state. Having it on the Fingbox would be a no-brainer.
