The control system runs from a dedicated box rather than a PC. It has
some advantages for security and stability. I only need the PC to make
changes. I have X10 units to control all my lights. This can be done
from Comfort or from a PC. I have some software to do that on Linux, but
haven't done much with it apart from some tests when I had problems with
Comfort. Turned out that a new hair-drier was interfering with Comfort!

Hey, I've produced some traffic on the list :)
