Hi burnsey,

this is a great idea! Do you mean this stuff?: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X10_(industry_standard)

If yes, I will can code this for you, but this will take some time since I don't know this system yet.

Also if you know any other open source software that works with this X10 stuff, please post a link to it here.

Stefan I knew there would be a genius like u out there! http://autom8.clangen.org/ That's the kit all right, all be it I use the UK stuff, code will be same though. Fair amount of software out there but all need static. IP or dydns, nothing as slick as twitter. also see: http://www.wgjohns.com/bxvc.htm
