Looking for Public IP address monitor that can send email alerts

I'm looking for a program will check my IP address and alert me via email when my ISP changes it. I found one Windows program (My IP Alert), but it doesn't seem to work properly.

why? you could just setup a dynamic DNS name that would allow you to always use the same hostname no matter what the ip changes to

Sorry I didn't explain more.

I don't care about the hostname.

I'm interested in eliminating my own accesses from logfiles, both to get a truer picture, and also to make sure that any of the accesses for testing etc. haven't somehow got out to the outside world - search engines or RSS or anything else. Google Analytics can prevent entries based on filtering, but I can't make changes after the data has been captured. Same thing with the analytics on my blog. Same thing for AWstats running on my server, but in this case I can run AWstats locally with a filter (just haven't figured out how yet).


alert, ip
