Hi to all!
When I've bought the MyBook World Edition (5-6 months ago) I found this forum that helped me a lot hacking my MyBook… Nice work guys!
So now it's time to pay back…
I was looking for a way to make MyBook my small rapidshare downloader box, but I've found that it wasn't so easy as there aren't any linux download managers that fit my taste.
Anyway, 1 month ago I've seen a thread where you can install transmission with the Clutch interface in MyBook, so I've decided to do the same thing for premium rapidshare users because I think it's good to have a low cost and low power consumption device downloading 24/7 your data. It's waste to use a monster pc for just downloading when you don't work. Therefore, I've developed a rapidshare daemon for MyBook with its own web interface.
Although, I've started this for MyBook it can be used in any linux distro but this is not my main target.
Right now I have made a beta release which works ok. You can visit the web site http://myrapbook.sourceforge.net/ to try it. Any feedbacks are welcomed.
I just have to say that I'm not a programmer and actually learned linux on MyBook so please forgive any bugs you find, just post them and I'll try to fix them. It's open source and anybody can modify the code. I don't want any donations so don't do, just use it and do what ever you want with it.
