Maintaining a Dynamic DNS automatically.

If you don't care much about it being run as "daemon" (e.g. independend of whether you are currently logged in) it can be easier to just drop it into ~/Library/LaunchAgents.

Just remove
<key>Username</key>
<string>nobody</string>

True, but I would think in a lot of cases--if someone is truly running a home server--they are not going to be logged into the server box all the time, and will leave it running at the login screen.

I would +1 your comment if I could though, just for providing a clear and concrete difference between LaunchAgents and LaunchDaemons. I know a lot of folks who get confused over which to choose when rolling their own launchd plists.
