Urbana, IL - I am one with my bittorrent client. When I am put in the position where I cannot use my bittorrent client, I get anxious. Two weeks ago I found myself in an area with very few unblocked ports. The ports I could use for bittorrent were all closed. I decided to try and figure out how to tunnel around these ports and I ended up dishing out a whole dollar for access to an ssh server. Well, it turns out that all I had to do to unblock the ports was to connect to the wireless connection here with VPN and the ssh server I paid for also came with free webspace. Since I don't need the ssh server to tunnel with anymore, I figured that I would make the most of my hard earned dollar and put up a website. Here it is. Enjoy.
