Look into:

http://www.dyndns.org/services/dyndns/

"The Dynamic DNSSM service allows you to alias a dynamic IP address to a
static hostname in any of the many domains we offer, allowing your
computer to be more easily accessed from various locations on the
Internet. We provide this service, for up to five (5) hostnames, free to
the Internet community."

Apparently you just need to run an update client from your internal
network to keep the DNS record updated.

GetMyIP was another handy way to accomplish this, but sadly, the creator
has discontinued the project.
