Don't do that.  It takes several hours before all the clients have your
current descriptor, if you keep changing it every two or so hours you
are only placing a burden on the directory infrastructure and nobody
will use you anyway.

Changing it every now and then, say daily because your ISP disconnects
you and gives you a new IP address, is ok, but the longer you run at the
same address the more useful you are.
