If you do a reverse IP lookup on your dynamic IP, you'll probably see that you have a DNS string. For most, but not all ISPs, this DNS string is invariant and, more importantly, will always resolve to your then assigned IP address.

In my case, my dns string is
(e.g. CPE00099a711234-CM00099b117c43. ... .com)
Therefore, I can always hit my box via ssh by using

# ssh
Try finding out your ISP's dns string has some useful reverse lookups.

Never argue with an idiot. They will bring you down to their level and beat you with experience.
