Flew up to Queensland yesterday to program 2 Pronto pro's on an island, we got another company to install the gear up there prior to my arrival (didn't happen, not their fault, smashed panel and missing mounting gear). Got up at 4 am for the flight and worked through until 2am this morning then had an hours travel back to the hotel. Got up this morning at 5 to catch the flight back to Melbourne. Got home and passed out. The local guys were there till about 10 finishing the install with a hand from me.

Got home late last night after return trip from Flagstaff, AZ (I'm in the Denver area). Project in Flagstaff was incredible. Had a chance to play a role in the world's fourth LEED platinum rated home (soon to be seen on both Discovery and CNN). I was there to program some of the automation and primarily to monitor the home's reclaimed water use and storage. A bunch more to it but I'm not feeling very wordy...a couple of images here. One is the TP in the wall and the other is a mock up in my own home to show the GUI more clearly.

A friend of mine is the Prez of a company that builds, sells & installs those hi tech exercize machines to health clubs... the ones with TV monitors built-in...

He sent me to a place today that needs 350 (retro) RG59 runs from the mechanical room equipment racks to all these crazy exercise machines.... amplified, tilted -- all the usual.
Runs range from 75 to 350 - 400 feet.

Located on 3 floors old downtown building, but at least there are drop ceilings.
Wants a fixed bid (gulp).

Wants me to start tomorrow.

He has a lot of large installs like this popping up all over the U.S. where a new or existing club installs 250 to 800 of these machines... I'll keep you posted if I hear of any areas that are hot to go... Would be a good foot in the door to sell and hang a ton of Plasmas & distributed audio systems too!

Some of these clubs are HUGE 100,000 sq. ft. plus.

Anthony,

which automation system are you using in this house? What brand is this touchscreen (probably the same as the automation system!)?

Yep, Convergent Living Companion 8 touchscreen in the kitchen'ish area. It was a fun project. Gave me lots to think about. I'm in a typical production, suburban home so I'm always looking at ways to "improve". Spent a few minutes foaming the gangs on exterior walls yesterday so I must have been inspired.

friday, we did the House Of Blues in N'Awlins...

Saturday, I did a Harmony remote for the guitar player ad his fiance as a wedding gift. Apparently, it has *high* WAF, so i may do a few more of those (she was teaching him how to use it...LOL)

then, I drove home, 7 hours.

Today, I slept.
We can do it my way, or we can do it my way while I yell. The choice is yours.

With only 3 slopes open, and at Apalachian at that, it might be more fun raking!
