The idea is very good, I think the implementation a bit less.<br /><br />I agree a software/plugin to run on a computer like Seti@Home is probably not the best solution, but why not a piece of software that can be installed on a router, e.g. an add-on to popular alternative firmwares like DD-WRT or Open-WRT?<br /><br />In particular I dislike the fact that the device is USB-powered... I can spare a Ethernet-port on my router for it, but I only have one USB port and I use that to connect my hard-drive to the router... Is the power adapter included in the package?
