Use iChat as a command line interpreter

Wouldn't it be MUCH safer to have your iChat robot tell you the machine's IP address? And then use SSH for remote access, like god intended?

Exactly. I was also thinking, there are cheap/free services that let you keep your IP address up to date.

I've used for this in the past. They give you some domain name, you run an app on your computer that tells no-ip (as often as every minute) what your IP address is. The domain name always forwards to your computer's IP. Then you never even have to think about it.
