AWS IP Address Changes

Improvement
AWS changes EC2 instance IP addresses anytime the server is stopped. Originally, we solved this by adding Elastic IPs to the servers, but AWS limits the amount of Elastic IPs you can have.

We've replaced this with a script that hits Hatchbox's API with the current IP address each time your EC2 instance boots. This solves the problem elegantly and allows us to remove the need for Elastic IPs.
