ABS-CBN’s primetime programming has totally screwed up tonight.

Extravagant and horribly inappropriate air time for a plunderer.

Mr. Lopez. Watch your corporate social responsibility. You know the power and reach of your brand, how far it reaches into the masses. If you want to serve the Filipino, you know what you ought to do.

In the service of the Filipino, Mr. Lopez.

A Globelines technician just came over this morning to replace our ProLink modem with a Siemens SE260 DSL modem. Excited as I was with the Siemens brand, to my dismay I found that it had limited port forwarding features. Anyway, I searched far and wide over the Internet and didn’t find clear-cut answers. Making use of what I learned, I got my uTorrent to give a green light. Here’s how I did it:

  1. Point your browser to
  2. Click on Status tab
  3. Go to the WAN sub-tab
  4. Take note of your public IP address in the resulting page
  5. Go to Advance tab
  6. USER/PASSWORD is user/user
  7. In the Port Forwarding sub-tab, enter the following information:
  • Port Forwarding: ENABLE
  • Protocol: BOTH
  • Comment: utorrent
  • Make sure the ENABLE checkbox is CHECKED
  • Local IP Address: [the local IP address of your computer, something like 192.168.1.x]
  • Local Port: [the listening port of your uTorrent client, like 12345-12345]
  • Remote IP Address: [the public IP address that you took note of earlier]
  • Remote Port:[the SAME listening port of your uTorrent client, like 12345-12345]
  • Interface: ANY
  2. Click ADD

You DON’T need to COMMIT/REBOOT. It will change your public IP address.

That’s it, you’re good to go! Since the public IP address is dynamic, I think you’ll have to do this all over again, just changing the Remote IP Address field. It doesn’t sound too good, but anyway, it works 🙂

Boredom sets in…

I had just wrapped up Season 3 of Prison Break.

On a jeepney this morning, I saw this man. The first thing I noticed about him was a full sleeve of tattoos. Almost immediately, a train of thoughts passed by:

“Ooh, was that his escape plan?”

“He has probably done time.”

“And that’s a bright yellow shirt he’s wearing.”

Yes, he wore a bright yellow shirt. Out here in the Philippines, prisoners wore orange overalls. Or was it yellow? I forgot.

He was a bit unkempt, with a thuggish appearance. And he wore a yellow shirt.

“Inmate” shirts were popular for a time. They said “Psychiatric Ward”, “Maximum Security”, whatever invoked fear and uncertainty.

I wanted to know what was printed on his yellow shirt. Then I saw it.

In bold and black:

“Do not judge me.”
