While it has nothing to do with on-rev, for this purpose I recommend dyndns.org.
Get a free account with them and then you can register your wife's
computer or your home network's public address so that it has a name
e.g. lan.dyndns.org. If you install the update client (available on
the dyndns.org web site), it will run in the background and update
their records every time you get a new IP address, so the name will
always get you to the right address.
