Well as long as we're not arguing, let's say the Underpants Elves have decided that instead of your underpants, they want to steal your data.

IOW, you start with a flawed assumption. If you've secured your wireless network, then the answer is no. If you haven't, then the answer is "possibly."

Is that person able to access the hard drive, therefore accessing your personnal data (potentialy private) ?
Please, won't you contribute to the EhMac Fund to Stop Hilarious Misspellings?

Would that be PERSONAL data on your PERSONNEL, or ...

If you're worried about this sort of thing, you can restrict access to the HD by setting permissions for it, encrypting its contents, requiring admin access, using FileVault, etc. Again, this is not the right approach, however: the right approach is to secure your wireless network. If the network is not secure, you have WAY bigger security risks than someone finding your porn stash.

Has anyone attached an external UPnP drive to their TC? Does it work?

chas_m you said above that that the Time Capsule does UPnP, I don't think so.

Running OS X since Beta

I strongly suggest that no one buys the Time Capsule.

I bought one and after 93 days it failed. The Time Capsule can not give me full bandwidth on a 16Mbps line, where a $10 Trendnet router can.

Apple are useless, try to get support without Apple Care.

I convinced Apple (after alot of pain) to replace my Time Capsule.

I will get a brand new TC. I will sell it and buy a $50 Dlink router instead.

Time Capsule truly sucks. Don't buy one (unless it's mine on Ebay)

This is my first Apple support experience. I have to say, I'm less than impressed, took many phone calls and a week to convince them to take my TC back.

What is the experience with TC compared to AEBS not considering the built in hard disk?

I plan to return my TC to apple and buy the AEBS in SigElectronics for $119 + 1.5TB $99 in TigerDirect. It's much cheaper compared to TC 500GB.

What do you think guys?

honestly, just get a cheap firewire or USB HD to do Time Machine. Time Machine wireless is excruciatingly slow.
