Torrents/LinkSys router issue?

I've been having a problem with my home network over the past month, since installing BitComet (a P2P file-sharing, freeware fully compatible with Bittorrent, one of the most popular P2P protocols designed for high-speed distribution of 100MB or GB sized files.)

Apparently I'm not the only person that had a problem with this issue -- so a pal reccomended DD-WRT, which is opensource firmware for your router! DD-WRT is easy to install and configure, but isn't for the layman!!

If you're interested in installing DD-WRT in your router, feel free to -- just follow the directions for your hardware to the letter! In the case of a LinkSys wireless router, such as my WRT54G v2.2, you need to install the "mini" firmware before installing the "standard" DD-WRT version. As always, when flashing (uploading) your firmware -- DO NOT REBOOT/UNPLUG nor interrupt it, otherwise you'll have a new paper-weight!

Well, since 1 May I've been very busy the past 60 days -- London, Nottingham, New York City (twice), and God knows where else -- I can't keep track anymore -- as long as I'm having a good time, right?


A funny thing happened in the New York City subway... read on in this exerpt from the LiveJournal of littlecrazycub, who is now on my BMB buddy list, and my LiveJournal friends list!


CCPhillyBearBoy/DeeJay Barney & LittleCrazyCub
Last night after the show, Barney came back to pick me up. I didn't really want to go back out but he convinced me to get off my lazy ass so we were out on our way for a benefit for Kevin Ambiance. As we were walking down into the subway, a hot leather wolf/bear caught my eye. We had the choice between two train platforms and I chose the most obvious, leather-clad one. :) As we walked down, Barney noticed his back left pocket, black and red. That would be right up my alley (figuratively, of course ;o)). Barney also saw his shirt "Ask me about my penis!". We were teasing each other about walking over and asking him. We were both curious but also shy, so we didn't say anything. He did catch me staring at him once, though. Soon the train arrived and we followed him aboard. After the next stop when two people sitting next to him got up, we dashed to take those seats. And then he spoke, breaking the silence, commenting on my Liberty Bears shirt. From there we did ask about his penis. :) :)

His name was Chaz and he was hot. After getting off the train, we realized that he had missed his stop and was now about 8 blocks off from where he was intending on going. We still weren't sure if that was intentional or not, but I was ready to follow him back. We had obligations though. Still, afterwards we had every intention on heading back to the Eagle to catch him. Before we split ways, Chaz gave Barney his card which low-and-behold had his LJ name on it. So hello to you mc4bbs. It was quite my pleasure meeting you. ;)

Yes, I am nuts.


So, once again, T-Shirts and nicely trimmed beards trigger the gaydar and new friends meet!

Well, I was going to put a bigger BLOG entry in here, including stuff from the NSMC Cancer Walk, my trip to New York City, the ECMC B.B.Q. and stuff, but I went to help my next-door neighbour with his computer for the last hour... So it's just about bedtime now... I'll try to post tomorrow.

It actually was LESS than an hour - thank you very much -
But, I did chill in your UNIT for a bit, then you came over to my Unit, to add the viewer software. Then you went all Geordi LaForge on the PC, on your own merits LOL

So, that did take up some of your time.
and thanks !

Come over to my Unit again and we can pick out undies for the undie bar night. I do like the my new red boxers -- or maybe my shamrock boxers !!
Nothing too too revealing - although I have to admit, boxer briefs make my tush "soft yet firm." --- Ok now repeat that, soft yet firm --- in boston accent
Soft yet feeeeeerm.

"Then [I] went all Geordi LaForge..." - I am honoured! ;-) Your problem was actually easy... you had some metrion isotopes lodged in your matter/anti-matter intercoolant manifold... Simply venting some warp core plasma and a tachyion rinse resloved the issue. :-)

And as for the "hour long" thingie:

Kirk ...... How long to re-fit?
Scotty .... Eight weeks. But you don't have eight weeks, so I'll do it for you in two.
Kirk ...... Scotty, Do you always multiply your repair estimates by a factor of four?
Scotty .... How else to maintain my reputation as a miracle worker?
Kirk ...... Scotty, Your reputation is safe with me.
