Uh... yes it does:

bladernr at klaatu:~$ wget -q -O - checkip.dyndns.org | sed -e
's/.*Current IP Address: //' -e 's/<.*$//'
71.XXX.XXX.XXX

(real IP obfuscated)

You were doing:

-O checkip.dyndns.org

and

-O -checkip.dyndns.org

when it should be:

-O - checkip.dyndns.org

I have a feeling it was just a matter of either Maxime's mail client
or your's mangling the line that makes it confusing.

Cheers
Jeff
