Ya, me too. I had an assignment where I used arrays in solving the problem. I guess the class didnt cover arrays yet, and so I failed the assignment. The teacher has one solution that she was expecting to see, and when it wasnt that, I failed. So, I was somehow supposed to guess what they wanted to see for a solution in that class based on what was taught to that point. Granted, I wasnt really following the "lectures" at all. I'm pretty sure the teacher was basically 1 week ahead of the students, learning it herself.

I'm using homeseer software. Its pretty good, and they have a program called hstouch that I run on the tablets that I customized for each room. I think it was like $300 for the pro version which included hstouch. Then, I'm using zwave wireless protocol for all my lighting modules, hvac, security, blind control, etc. I found zwave to be an extremely reliable protocol. Stay away from X10.

I do like the design, the top menu, and the styling. But as others have mentioned, the width doesn't scale to my full HD screen which wastes tons of space. For this type of website, that's isn't good especially when viewing the comments. So that being said, just leave it the way it is, or just update the styling to look better than the current ancient looking crappy styling.

If all else fails, lower your standards.
