Just for clarification for Germans: Isps of various countries, even in Europe,
do _NOT_ force a 24 hour dis/reconnect with dialup adsl lines.
Even if the line is disconnected, they _may_ just give away the same IP that
was used before to the same machine. They do not have to, but in practice they
often do. (see below)

In Germany and some neighboring states it's standard of isp's providing adsl dialups to
disconnect _every_ line after 24 hours and reconnect with giving away a new IP.
AFAIK there is no exeption to the rule with dialup lines.
So the idea of running a HSDir server is probably limited to those with more permanent
IPs, unless the 24 hour waiting period for HSDir servers to become active is changed to
