I wouldn't recommend the Guruplug, the fan sounds like an electric razor
and too loud and annoying to want to be in the same room as it. I
removed the fan and power supply, but ended up junking it anyway as I
couldn't get it to boot reliably from the MMC card. (The MMC controller
is on the end of a USB bus.)

I stuck to using my eSata SheevaPlug when I realised I could run a
firewall with only one ethernet port. [1]
