2. With more power, more lights! Since we got a *LOT* of white lights at 90% off clearance after January 1st this year, we'll probably see "Frostie the Snowman" replace the "Tree" and "Star" from years earlier.
3. Demo of how Webcam and Webcontrol could be used to turn the lights on and off via the Internet!
Since these are all X-10 controlled, one could simply write a Perl/CGI
Web interface that interacts with a webcam and not only grabs real-time
pictures of the lights, but also allows you to turn them ON and OFF by
sending X10 commands through the house wiring.
It should be interesting to see the human interaction on this one! ;-)
Check back here after Thanksgiving/2002 to see (and control!) the lights.
