Comments on Tuesday 22 June 2004:
For those of you who use Azureus for BitTorrent downloads, a public service announcement; the latest auto-update malarkey installs a UPnP plugin, which is enabled by default, and probably completely useless to all of you. What it does is tries to lob UDP packets at 239.255.255.250, port 1900 (for firewall purposes in Windows, this being sent from java.exe or javaw.exe). It can be switched off from the configuration/plugins area of dialogs, and switching it off doesn't take effect until Azureus is restarted. It also sends some other packet of a type my firewall cries about, to a different multicast IP, when Azureus is exited.

For those of you who don't use Azureus, this post is instead a moving story about a talking banana, in which it gets eaten by a deaf person at the end. [04:12]

Nooo, not Banana! I'll miss you!

Nameless
Damn you, deaf people of the world. Damn you all.

I rather like the substitutes you are putting in at the end of the posts for those of us who aren't interested in your nerdery. Or are interested, but can be more amused by words and short stories about fruit.

I had a banana a few days ago that tasted like a lemon.

Nightshade
Which end of the deaf person eats the banana???

AttackOfTheSpam
Nightshade, that's plain freaky. One does wonder, though, why the allusion isn't made more often.

MorbidCorvid: interesting. I had a lemon a few days ago that tasted like a lime.

Nice one RavenBlog,

I was wondering why I was getting so many hits, great answer that I found here on the good old google search :)

Was the bannana old, or married and did he have children ?, if so, I would like to know what happened to the little bananas, being just a little deaf could you shout out the story ;)

bugger I am getting emotional about a sodding bannana, I am getting sadder :o

appreciated the tip ;)

K-PAX
didnt realy get anything out of the answer, and OutPost Pro is still blocking jawaw.exe UDP-IN port 1900
i got green light so i dont care.
great story about the banana. Was it a Chicita Banana? could it dance too?

If a deaf person is eating a Banana in the forest and a tree falls, does it make a sound ?
