Dear Philip,

Having a URL that includes an IP address (in this case  
doesn't reassure me that this resource is permanent, or that links to  
any part of the site will be stable.

Can I suggest that you get a domain name for "TaxNet for Dipterists",  
so that links will remain unchanged even if, say, the site moves to a  
different computer with a different IP address?
