    Hi folks.
    I want to have a torrentclient running 24/7 and still be capable of having my MacBook with me. Still i don't want my old PowerMac running all the time, using a lot of power.
    So i considered buying an external harddive with a built-in torrentclient. Like the AirLive WMU-6500FS (http://www.airlive.com/product/product_3.jsp?pdid=PD1217466585289).
    But in expensive Denmark this costs around 200 dollars, and that´s without the disk. So far so good.
    Then i wondered if I could, somehow, turn my Airport Extreme and my external harddrive into something similar. Maybe by installing some software on the disk?
    Anyone who knows how to do this and if it´s possible at all?

    I don't know of any way to do this, but if you figure it out I'd be interested!
