LOL - sounds about right!

For what it's worth, I will be starting on my arduino LED controller soon. Once that's done, more steps will follow, which will probably include RPi integration with database (update/access thru SQL) and internet accessibility, but I will be developing the individual arduino aspects first, before adding the overwatch (RPi role) so don't hold your breath!

I'm all right, thanks. I think I have read you have another family member, congratulation.

I think there was no progress at all since a very long time?

Thanks for the congratulations, yes we've got girl number three!

Nothing much has moved forward at all as far as I can see.
I've been playing around a bit, but with no real direction.
 
I've been looking at Openhab and some other iot interfaces, but from my basic understanding they seem a bit lumpy

Okay, we can re-start it, that's not a problem.

I think writing software for it was the biggest issue, what have you used in your attempts?

I've tried Openhab, cayenne and tried to get my head around the adafruit.io site

I have had a look at them, interesting.

Currently I don't have any aquarium to play with but should get one for this project.

Going to have a look at your git hub page once I get home, as I said above,
I had tried a few pi interfaces but I only briefly tried the node red despite it being built in to the latest jessie build

Ok i found a lighting controller that is going to work with my pi nodered setup i am using a nodemcu board and a  PCA9685 now but will be getting one of those "pictured" from Basil from the russian RC site ..
i am still working on doing http weather request then parsing that to send it to the lighting controller
