even without coding skills, even you thoughts and imagination to give me directions to go that might spark other developers and HA enthusiasts like ourselves.   It was alot of your ideas that started me down this path, like S.A.R.A ...
I can't agree more.
Dave it was your continued ideas and wishes that inspired the BlueWatch programs which many still use today.
It was also your wishes for a remote BVC app that inspired the creation of TAC
Even your weather report ideas inspired code in PCC and the creation of the X10weather watch plug-in.
Your S.A.R.A. project continues my drive to improve PCC
I'm not saying your were my sole motivation as there were and continue to be others (to many to list) but you and others like you have and continue to motivate (not just my) software development!
Keep the ideas coming! ;)

I've never been a big user of voice recognition in my automation setup it was nice to have but I found I was always using other methods for input.
The other day I had a chance to load some Voice Recognition software to Windows 8 on a laptop.
Being a laptop and not having an external mic I wasn't expecting much. ::) :'
 :'Wow was I wrong. :o
Using the built in mic my commands were never missed, never did I have to repeat myself(something I wasn't use to).
The stock Voices, 3 in total also rock.
There are some things I don't like about Windows 8 but for Voice recognition and TTS response this OS blew me away.
Looks Like I'll need to upgrade my HA PC to Windows 8.
Now I know a good piece of Voice recognition software will make a difference but this wasn't high end software.
I don't like to think the software was low end either(I made it).

I've been playing with the new Wi-Fi enabled LED lights from EasyBulb (MiLight) lately and finally have some working code to control both the RGB and White LEDs.
These bulbs work similar to the Philips Hue though I doubt the same Wi-Fi code will work with them.
Although this will be come a option in PcCompanion it is currently only available in the SG version(currently in testing)
I however have thrown together a simple Windows app that will send all on/all off signals.
It is set to use the default setting of the required Wi-Fi controller
You can change the IP and port however the settings will not be saved as this is intended only as a sample app.
