thats NOT what dynamic dns is... thats just a wildcarded subdomain and a script. (dynamic dns is a whole other animal.) these type of scripts are not uncommon. this is the first NICE one i've seen, most are used to generate insults or humorous fake news articles like "Pooldemon Arrested in Monkey Sex Scandal"! one of my faves used to be at it produced a nasty page that said terrible things about whatever you put in the url.
