Toggle display of network and IP addresses in Sharing prefs System
I'm not sure if this is documented anywhere, but I found something interesting in the Sharing Preferences Panel. If you click on the text displayed after "Network Address:," it will flip back and forth between your IP Address and your actual Network Address. That is, 123.123.123.12 is originally displayed, and after one click, mymachine.mydomain.com is displayed. Obviously, your Network Address will vary.

More convenient (and not requiring a name-resolvable address) is IP which gives you LAN and WAN IP addresses in your menu bar and places the address in your clipboard when you select one of them.
