On a somewhat related note, I am working on writing an application right now. The way it works is, you run a tiny (0.5mb or less) client on your system, and you can then go to a website (I will initially host it from my folding rig) and see HFM.NET style realtime folding stats for all machines on which you have the client running.
This way, if you are travelling, you do not need to wait for the hourly updates to figure out if you clients have stopped folding. You can just go to the website, even from your cellphone.
I should have the first release ready in about a week or so.
