Okay, so that's kinda cool

I just tracked down the webUI.zip file for adding the web interface to uTorrent. They don't make it easy, since all the links in 2.x are no longer valid, now that they've commoditized version 3.0.  But a little google-foo found the help forum page that has a link to the latest version.  Which actually works fine with 2.x (The only thing I've noticed so far is that it doesn't support the peers tab, but looking through the release notes and history, that's an api that's only in 3.0 and later.  No big deal).

Still, the upshot is now that if I'm in the other room and I am reading on my laptop, and find an interesting torrent, I can download it, move it to Himawari through the regular Windows file sharing, drop it in my AutoLoad Torrents folder, and then open a link in my browser to start it.

This doesn't happen TOO often, but it has a couple of times. I've locked it down to just the IP I assigned to Etna. I don't want to expose it to the world, and my Router/Modem doesn't make it very safe to do so anyway.

Anyway, it's kinda slick.
