I'm working on building my own home automation/distribution system from scratch, and have the first bit done. It's A Jukebox for distributing music to multiple zones in the house and outside the house. (So you can listen to tunes at work, etc.). So, if any of you have a minute, I'd like to hear feedback (yep, even if it sucks). Check it out at http://www.piels.com/bjuke10.html . And if you want to play with the code, let me know. It's all for free!
