Cloud-based Cross-Platform IP Address Updater for OpenDNS/DNS-O-Matic

They do point to a ddclient utility but I wasn't comfortably able to configure it on my box. Hence I sat down to wrote a few lines of PHP code which can be used in either of the following ways:
Through PHP_CLI commandline (and thus you can add it to the startup scripts in /etc/init.d)Most of the Unix installations have Apache PHP built-in. You can have this scripts in one of the aliased directories, have them bookmarked as home page in your browser.
