Yeh, I thought more of Primer, but moved from the strip mall suburbs into a modernist architecture world. I think it's better than Primer in some ways, particularly in how you are slowly exposed to...

Review: Synchronicity

This one is a very twisty, very intelligent, very carefully crafted time travel paradox movie. It doesn't try to...

In terms of DIY friendly ones, the Elk M1 is very commonly used. The HAI Omni is another option, slightly more up-scale, and somewhat less DIY friendly. The Elk comes with less up front at a lower...

One thing that bothers me, is that all these new folks show up on forums who have never heard of anything but a 'hub'. So they refer to our product as a hub, and I tell them it's not a hub, that they...

Our own product of course is also a software based system. It's more professional/commercial oriented but still DIY friendly. Like any such tool, it has a little learning curve, but the payoff is...

The difference is that some very simple systems are really mostly just a remote control on a phone (or tablet or whatever touch screen type device) in the sense that you press a button there and it...

You have to consider how a system like Z-Wave is used. There are simple systems, which are basically just remote controls on a phone, and then there are more serious automation systems. The latter...

It's a joke really, just intellectually and creatively moribund. Ultimately I guess it had to happen. With a combination of enormous theft of content and the inevitable fact that there are only so...

I think that this section is just so lightly traveled that none of them has needed to even do anything here for a long time, and probably seldom check in.

I rewatched the Cosmos series a few months ago. It holds up pretty well, though of course it has some 70's'isms that some folks today might have trouble with. It's a bit 'Cosmic' at times. But still...

Of course no one has come close yet to beating "The Russian Arc", an entire movie in one take. I guess to beat that you'd have to do the movie and the sequel in one take.

I guess I'd throw "Requiem for a Dream" on the table. Definitely a disturbing, out there movie.

This is an old thread that someone resurrected. Don't know if I commented in it or not. But, this is one that I would want to see as well.

Review: Anasthesia

I watched this one last night and enjoyed it a lot. I'm sure that this one is going to rub some folks the wrong way. They'll think it's pretentious and over-intellectualized or some such. IMO, that's...

"Up to the Mountain", simple and beautifully done. It sounds like it's some hundred year old spiritual but she wrote it no too long ago, about MLK.

CQC (www.charmedquark.com) supports hundreds of devices. The further off the beaten path the hardware is the less likely it is to be supported. If it provides an interface, it can be. I just requires...

That's always going to be the case. For the same reason it would take a reasonably substantial effort on your part to learn a new system, it is the same for them. And, they also generally, for those...

Well, our CQC system is definitely such an option (www.charmedquark.com). It's basically the software part of a Crestron or Control4 system, but you pick the hardware you want to use. It's designed...
