Shutdown a LaCie Ethernet Disk mini (NAS) from a command line

The URL to shutdown the mini NAS, surprisingly, accepts both POST and GET. This is great for me, since I like to shut down my whole home theater at night. The URL looks like:

http://admin:yourpassword@ipaddress/cgi-bin/admin/reboot?action=shutdown

And you can use WGET or CURL on pretty much any platform to call it from a command line.
