After Jolly posted this item (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16817605002), I hemmed and hawwed and finally decided to buy one. It turns out that the BitTorrent client is really buggy and slow, and the fan is loud and ineffective, but I can replace the fan and I don't really use BT anyway. I'm also betting on ADS releasing a firmware update before I decide to push the limit of what the box can do. The built-in web server seems like it could be a good way to play around and build my website skills without a huge hardware investment or a monthly subscription fee. Jolly, you said it runs Linux and you could probably edit the firmware. Any chance you know how to read the firmware into a file so it can be edited? Might be that the fixes the thing needs are fairly simple to implement.
