How about using symbolic DNS names?  They're memorizable, can
represent different IPs at different times (after moving a repo
which sometimes happens as related questions regularly bubble up
here on the list), can be CNAME'd / load balanced, etc.  Most of
all:  they have worked for ages and will continue to work.  Since
I don't like hardcoding numeric IPs too much I didn't even think
of this to be a problem.  I'd even more consider using numeric
IPs in CVSROOT settings to be asking for trouble sooner or later.

Wasn't there some talk about URL style CVSROOT specs?  What do
other IP enabled applications do?

             ask your parents or an adult to help you.
