Dynamic DNS is the solution.  There are many zero-cost providers, e.g.
http://www.dyndns.com/services/dns/dyndns/.  You would need a small
program on your 770 to update the dyndns IP every time you connect.
Debian had a bunch of these packaged, it shouldn't be too difficult to
port one.

Anyone can do any amount of work provided it isn't the work he is supposed
to be doing at the moment.
