By the time it arrived I wonder if it was covered in bits of wire, steel cans, bikes. screws and other random bits of iron.
Yeah, but how do you aim that 1 watt directly into each of those 100 seeds? The angular diameter of each seed as seen from the access point will be tiny. Most of the RF energy will be absorbed by the soil, the trays, the air, the table, the walls, the experimenters...
Yup, agreed, I use heated trays to get seeds going. The kind of waste heat put out by a router would keep some seeds very happy so long as you'd don't let it dry them out.
"claimed"? I'm still using the present tense.
Shhhh, don't tell everyone or else the reptilian overlords will hunt you down!
They would still go missing, but they would end up as the centre piece on the alter of some cult.

Nah, I programmed for a while, decided I didn't want to do it full time and had more fun messing around with sys admin type stuff.
It had never occurred to me that there might be sys admins out there who *can't* program to some degree!
It's not like someone making a perfect copy of your car, this is like someone making a horrible, bastardised, substandard version of your car, which other people then think is your car and think, by association, that you are a jerk.
I live 25 miles down range from Heathrow airport. When Concorde was still running and I was at school we would just stop doing anything at about 11am everyday and wait for it to fly over. Conversation was impossible, windows rattled...actually everything rattled. Having said that, I didn't care, it was great just to see it flying and I wouldn't complain if it was still making that much noise. Then that evening it would silently "glide" back into Heathrow on minimal power.
