How to LIMIT the upload traffic on specific ports, either on my PC (Windows XP) or on my router (Linksys WRT54GL). I am looking for a free solution. I am aware of several unofficial firmware replacements for my router, but none of them seems to support this feature.

You can adjust your security to a more aggressive setting from the control panel under "security". Move the sliders up a notch and see if it helps. Your firewall settings, depending on the software used for it, will help regarding incoming traffic by customization also but it can become cumbersome at times.

Question found in Dogs In General
He may be getting so much exercise that he is burning all of his energy. This is OK but it easily will hide other underlying problems such as worms, etc. You may be able to try increasing his food intake if he is agreeable or changing his food from beef to chicken to eventually lamb and rice. On large breeds always wait at least 1 hour after activity before you feed him and at least one hour after he eats before allowing him to run and play. Preferably longer. This will help avoid bloat, which will kill a big dog very fast. Check the 'net or ask your vet for his breed exercise and diet requirements comparable to his age but also try not to make him overweight due to bone and joint problems that can surface later on in his life. At 20 months, lamb and rice over the next three weeks may give you your desired results along with some supplemental vitamins. Good luck to you.

I really liked this guy named Justin. He is my best friends cousin and he told her that he really liked me and wanted to ask me out. He finally asked me out over the phone and I was really exited. The next day at school when I saw him I got really shy and my friends immediately started saying that I was getting red so when I saw him coming up to me I turned around and left. I guess he got the wrong idea. Anyways my best friend Cassandra called me over the phone and said that we should go to the mall, of course Justin had to go but Cassandra didn't want to be alone so she decided to invite this guy that she had been crushing on for a long time, Steven. Me and Steven were good friends and I always knew he would get really perverted around me but I thought that since he knew I was dating Justin he would control himself just this one time turns out I was wrong. When we got to the mall and bought our tickets to go into the movies Steven put his arm around me, I knew he was only being friendly so I didn't really make a big deal out of it. When we were taking our seats I sat next to Justin and Steven sat at other far end. In the middle of the movie Steven called Justin to come and take the seat that was next to him. Justin hesitated at first but got up immediately when Steven said that he had to tell him something important, leaving an empty seat right beside me. When Justin went to take the seat Steven got up from his and took the empty seat beside me. I couldn't believe Steven had done that and thinking that Justin would say something I only looked at Steve and rolled my eyes, but Justin didn't do anything or say anything I just saw him from the other end looking at us. My friend Cassandra was telling me to move but Why should I move when Justin doesn't even seem to care? Steven was acting all cool at first as if he had been sitting there the whole time so I just decided to try ignore the situation and enjoy the movie. A couple of minutes later I felt Stevens hand touch my hand and I moved my hand and said Steve stop! He just smiled and looked up at the screen. He tried a couple more times and every time I would say no stop, guessing I got him mad he got up and went to take his last seat. I thought Justin would come back but when I turned to see why he wasn't coming back I saw Justin and Steve talking and laughing. Then Steve came back to the seat next to me, tried to hold my hand, I yelled no and Steve said Your boyfriend said it was OK. I was so mad at Steven and Justin I didn't know whether to believe him or not so I said I don't care if he said it was OK I don't want to hold ur hand! Steven got mad and got up to take his last seat again. This time Justin came back and I didn't even want to look at him. He tried to make me laugh for the rest of the movie and I did laugh once or twice. I smiled at him when he smiled at me because I couldn't help it I kept telling myself your mad at him and your gonna talk to him about it but I really really liked him that once he smiled I felt everything should be forgotten. The movie ended and for the rest of the time at the malll we didnt talk only smiled at each other. The next day I broke up with him and we havent spoken ever since. Sometimes at school he smiles at me and I smile back. How do I make him my friend again? How can I get him back?

Question found in Teenage Relationships
I agree with Mr. B. The way you type is indicative of your age just like mine is indicative of a redneck. You must learn to be direct with your actions, words, deeds, etc. Don't play games and expect others to automatically figure it out. If you are of the type who doesn't realize that you are doing this, then almost all of your communications with this guy will be mixed. Be brave, take a chance and try not to complicate things more than they already are. All you simply need is a little more courage to approach him and the wisdom to accept his answer, whether it be a yes or no. Good luck.

Question found in Science In General
A type of machine, mechanical or electrical device which has been given a specific set of instructions by humans that can often do repetitive tasks or precise tasks in which humans do but with much less error. I may have the location incorrect, but, there is a man in Australia??, who has created a wind powered device, a robot, that walks along the beach. The difference is, it is powered by a minimal amount of wind with a bamboo structure and a spider-like walk. This is programmed mechanically without any electricity or instruction. It is all in the design........

The same phenomenon that causes cyclonic weather patterns to spin opposite ways in the hemispheres, hurricanes vs cyclone? Is it real? Drain tests have been done at the equator, but not scientific enough even though they have initially been proven true and fact in some cases.
