I got home from work yesterday to find two packages sitting on the doorstep. It was the X-10 lighting control stuff that Travis had ordered. I spent a good deal of time (too much) trying to get everything to work yesterday. Depending on which outlet I plugged stuff into, it would either work perfectly or not at all. It was a tad frustrating, but everything seems to be working now, so all of the lights in the family room are controlled via the remote. When I hit play on the DVD player, the lights dim, when I hit pause, they get brighter. It works very well. I still have a little bit of setup to do, but everything is coming along nicely.
Travis kicked the cat out last night, so she pestered me all night. She's a cat, she is supposed to be spending most of her time sleeping!
