    I'll bet it's impossible on some rack mount systems. I used to have everything rack mounted and it became a pain whenever I wanted to do anything. Eventually, as I replaced stuff, I just put shelfs in the racks and just set my stuff on them. Now I can get to stuff a bit better.

    True, but if your blender is storing data, you might want to think about a new dishwasher!

    People ask this regularly and every time Vudu engineering gives the answer that it is 100% safe to just pull the power. The file system is robust enough that it is not a problem.

    I don't like the idea of an ungraceful shutdown of anything with an OS and a hard drive. Am I just being paranoid? Is the Vudu File System robust enough that it doesn't matter? Is there a way to shut it down gracefully? I am guessing they want to discourage turning the thing off due to the P2P architecture, but shouldn't there be that option, even if it is buried in a sub-menu? Is it buried in a submenu and I just haven't stumbled over it yet? Is there a limit to how many questions you can pack in to a single post? Have I reached it?

    If I'm not mistaken (which I could be), I think my Tivo is the same way. I never thought much about it.
