Some of you may be interested in my ESP8266 based key fob remote control that can turn the Kankun switch plug on and off.

There is a basic tutorial on hacking the Kankun device to install the relay.cgi script (thank you Konstantin) using WinSCP. The script also has an added toggle command.

Complete instructions for building the remote control and programming it in Lua are also included.

Please, let me know if I have skipped over any steps in the instructions.

Thank you to all the contributors who helped make this a simple short project instead of a long frustrating exercise.

Check out https://www.olimex.com/Products/OLinuXino/A20/A20-OLinuXIno-LIME2/open-source-hardware It includes real ethernet and sata. Something I can't believe r-pi still does not have.  It's not really media center ready though, I don't think Linux supports audio over hdmi yet on this board.

In a followup study to the insightful reports on the most reliable hard drive brands and consumer versus enterprise hard drives, Backblaze found some interesting data that could help you choose your next drive. One piece of advice: stay away from 3 TB drives.
