in reply to Perl of the Future

you can control this stuff with Perl!

the BottleRocket library for controlling X10 equipment includes a perl module wrapper.

if X10 weren't such an annoying company (pop-up adds, spy camera adds of a dubious nature, pushy sales tactics, general sliminess, etc), i'd be all over this stuff.

    Thanks. ybiC was kind enough to point me to this as well. It is cool to see this stuff around. I agree about the shadiness of X10, especially the spy-cam ads of inevitably sexual nature. I actually used to have a bunch of their modules back around 1988, and I controlled them with my Macintosh 512k. All very automated, but I didn't write a line of code. I was mainly hoping to foster fun and imaginative answers with this node, such as Abigail-II's. For me, I'd have my fridge detect low beer counts and food near the spoiling point. Perhaps have a bio-scanner to detect when I need another beer or some coffee...
