A Place on the Internet

I'm in the process of moving my Speakeasy DSL to my new apartment. In doing so, I went over the other options, and realized that if I let go of my static IP (along with competent techs, network maps, etc.), I can save $60/month by going to AT&T.

As a poor college student who has the ability to go in to lab whenever there is an outage at home, this should be a no-brainer... yet, I feel pretty attached to having my own IP that I can know and trust to be there. I've used DynDNS in the past and have no real complaints with their service, but it's not quite enough for some reason.

Is this common? Am I just weird?
