    There is apparently a hack to install the OpenVPN server component on
    WD's 'My world edition' linux based NAS thingy.


    Anyone done this, and feel comfortable about the security of this
    solution? Private IP thoughput issues? I can serve 1.3Mbps out of my
    local network, the intention is to stream standard definition video
    through the tunnel.

    Finger hovering on the Amazon 'Buy' button at present, 1TB for £99

    Or should I get an Atom based PC, one of the Acer Revo Linux things -
    and hang a large SATA drive out of the back. £189.99 currently + cost of
    a large 3.5" drive.

    Trying to limit my electricity bill for things running 24/7.
