in reply to Cable Modem Check

That's good work and a good idea. I have DSL and have the
same problem after about a day of inactivity.

I have some of the components hooked up to some appliances.
Being a newbie I always like to have examples
I never thought there was a perl module for it.

Now I know.
I couldn't use the Firecracker software because of Win2k(roomate's 'puter, mine has been
dead for over a year.)
This is just another reason to love and hate perl.
Love: So many uses on SO MANY SYSTEMS/EASY TO PORT!
Hate: I'm going to buy MORE X10 Appliance Modules(**CHA-CHING)!!!

Now I wish there was a module to work with my Yo!MP3 player.

    I'm almost done with the next version; been on hold for a few days while I do some work that actually pays the rent.

    Next version will support the other two popular backends; ppower and xtend. I'm not currently planning any Windows support, but it shouldn't be too hard to make the conversion, if you can find a program with the same functionality as Heyu.

    I think the easier way out, though, would be to spend a Saturday morning trolling through the garage sales in your area. My X10 box is a 386-25 running RedHat 6.2; it works fine, even running the BlueLava CGI web interface. Just make sure the system you run the X10 from is NOT addressable from the outside world; I don't think you'd like to have a script kiddie find it at 3 AM. <G>
