I really wouldn't do that on a open network. Of course the chances of you
personally being targeted by something malicious are quite low but the
consequences could be devastating, think not just of what could be
downloaded (creditcard numbers, etc) but also of the kind of thing that
could be planted on your computer. A thing like that could easily devastate
your life, even if you could demonstrate you were unaware of it. I'd instead
white-list all relevant peers like -say- all of plork. That should
significantly reduce the risks while preserving most of the convenience.

Back on topic; David, these stuck computers, does Chuck take excessive
amounts of cpu on them while they are stuck? If relatively little cpu is
used it's probably stuck waiting for some event, if a lot is used it'll be
something else.
