Non-English blogger post url

When we publish a post the first time, Blogger take the post title as post URL, that's permalink, Blogger, after publishing a post, changing either the post title or the date or both,  will not change the post URL.

I use Chinese in one of my blogs, blogger just use post numbers as blog post url, such as "2009/01/blog-post_07.html", year/month/post-number, in this case it's the seventh post in January, 2009. 

This happens to Japanese blogs, too.  Blogger use 'blog-post_XX.html' as Japanese post URL, XX is the number of the blog post.

This is not very good in terms of SEO (Search Engine Optimisation).  

The first cardinal rule of SEO is, put key words into:
  • blog or website URL
  • blog title
  • individual post URL (permalink)
  • individual post title
How about other languages, such as French or Hindi or Arabic?

I browse through blogs, found this one(sorry about my ignorance, I don't what this language is):

Banda Filarmónica de Monção (Post title)

banda-filarmnica-de-mono.html (Post URL)

Here Blogger take out non-ASCII characters,  leave ASCII characters as post URL. This is a disaster in terms of SEO, indeed.

Vodafone Router Configuration for Incoming Connection and other Services

This post is about specific Vodafone Home Broadband Router configuration for Incoming Connection and other service on your home computer. This is not a tutorial, and will not be going into details of the services and router configuaration, I just want to point out couple of points you need to pay attention to. 1. Port Forwarding. Vadafone Router has its own name for Port Forwarding, it's called Port Mapping under Port Management category.The picture below shows that I set up web server on my desktop, I map my local address on port 80; and I set up PPTP incoming connection by mapping local address on port 1723. Port Forwarding 2. Exposed Host.

Static NAT (Network Address Translation) means the Router will translate publi
