Not sure how familiar you are with the Internet of Things concept, but someone as curious as yourself would probably find it pretty interesting.

I'd start with basic stuff first:

optimizing climate control - shutting off airflow in unoccupied rooms, schedule programming and/or syncing to shut the whole thing down if no one is around [say during work hours], finding the most efficient temperatures during whatever time, etc..

optimizing electricity - shutting off lighting in unoccupied rooms, monitor usage, automate washer/dryers/other high power devices at night, off peak rate time... SMART grid electricity is making its way through Chicago, so my box should be able to connect directly into it.

Convenience - media server streaming to TVs, tablets, and smartphones, FTP server to share content with friends or watch from hotel TVs,




eventually i'll get IoT Roombas and maybe a fridge, so they'll clean my floors while i'm at work and tell me when my food is going bad. Maybe a coffee maker that starts a cup when i'm in the shower... oh the possibilities coming down the pipeline...

you should start a thread for discussion of this. i am also thinking about how to incorporate computers into my home. my main idea is to have an old laptop control (through an arduino or similar) the temperature of a box for fermenting beer. but also i want a small computer (maybe a pi) to monitor my electricity usage

apparently that is pretty common with Halo games.
The dreaming thing.

Seemingly more-so than other games.

Sounds like a 500 dollar experience. srsly debating.

I was sick at both games but I stopped halo 2 when everyone was doing that scam with the router reset and whatnot all the time.

I got so good that I went arbiter with white armor and gold trim just to antagonize. Its been a long time though, nearly 10 years.

dat zanzibar map doe

Would have been hilarious if rockstar managed to get GTA5 to the current gen before Watch Dogs came out and no one bought it.
