I got mine a few months before all that talk. I love it. I use it as a
home firewall/web/mail server running openbsd. I installed a 60 gig
laptop hard drive. The only problem I have is heat. The system runs at
about 60C which I think is too hot, though I haven't seen any errors. I
just bought a cheap usb wifi card with the prism3 chipset. I plan on
playing around with making a wifi base station. I'm also thinking of
swapping out the hard drive for a compact flash. Has anyone ever seen
one of these: US Modular 2.2GB compact flash;
http://www.ecost.com/ecost/shop/detail.asp?dpno=338550 In the product
details it says the media is glass. I'd love to find out more about this
as it is cheap, $176.
