You know that you can directly use freedns for the dynamic ip, removing
the need of dyndns and the frame, right?

The page is incomplete. If you look at the html source, you'll see the
page content ends at:
<tr style="height:2px

This causes a mismatch which the skin, which is then placed incorrectly.

The slow connection is probably responsible that many of your requests
get truncated. However, MediaWiki should have been smarter and detect that.

I have added such detection at https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/6874
Adding that patch into your wiki should fix it (it will show an increase
of fetching errors, but it's preferable than accepting and caching bogus

Also, you should enable curl extension if you're not using it.
