I am running dsl through at&t with a dynamic public ip address. I like to remote into my pc when I am out and about. I was thinking about writing a script that would go out and fetch my public ip address and email it to my yahoo mail account. This way when I needed to remote in I could just check my email for the address. I was thinking of maybe using one of the many websites that will tell you your IP address. I don't really know where to start. Any ideas???

it uses a small utility installed in your pc to update your name-ip record.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
