got mine in the mail the other day, it's nice for six bucks.  The only problem I've seen so far is...it's not WinLIRC friendly :(

I'll need to see about using my IR circuit with a different girder plugin, then.  Still though, for six bucks it's pretty fargin awesome!

Also, there are tons of third party programs written for the firecracker, even a server/client set that allows you to control your appliances remotely.  In essence, you could set up a webserver to access anywhere in the world. Pointless, but neat :)

Got mine, but be careful...they will try to cancel if you send one more then 1 to the same address.  But supposedly when they cancel it, there is a link in the email to a $15 off next purchase coupon...I can't confirm this though.  They wouldn't send one to a friend in the same dorm building because he had almost the same address as me.  But they let him send it to his house  :roll:   They aren't very smart

Yes, do you do get a $15 off coupon.

Got mine yesterday too, and it does the trick. I haven't fooled with the peecee interface yet cause I'm about to move, but I'm planning on using it with bottlerocket on FreeBSD. It should tide me over till I get my TW523 wired up and write my own PHP front end to xtend.
