I prefer static myself. I have the table on the wall, with a note next to each address, indicating what kind of machine and where it is. I can look up a box on the wall and have the IP instantly. Sure, it's a tiny bit more work at the start than DHCP would be, but I like knowing IPs, even when the machine is down (Or hell, knowing the amchine is down by the IP being unresponsive).
Anyone have the opposing POV? I'd love to hear why DHCP rocks.
