With Linux, you can use the "dummy" module to provide a network
interface with the same IP address you'd get when dialed in.

I don't think that would help with dynamic IP addresses, but starting
with IPv6 we won't need those either :-)

People with dynamic addresses are unreachable anyway, so should
configure their machine to not pretend otherwise (that is, `hostname`
should give or an internal-use-only address bound to the dummy

The idea is that the first face shown to people is one they can readily
accept - a more traditional logo. The lunacy element is only revealed
subsequently, via the LunaDude. [excerpted from the Lunatech Identity Manual]
