So there I was, all gung-ho to make some serious progress. I was going to do a bunch of reseach on Z-Wave; I was gonna write a nice little bit of software to replace OpenHAB; and I was gonna blog about it. It was gonna be great!
I was truly in the Zone.
And then my boss quit, and it all went to hell in a handbasket.

Hard as it is to believe, today marks floating.io’s first birthday. One year ago today I finally got around to putting my new blog together. My goal was to post often, and talk about fun things.
I only managed about a post and a half per month. This is post #20.
What went wrong?

I’ve been waiting for weeks now for HomeSeer to get their excellent Z-Wave dimmers and companion switches back in stock. They finally did earlier this week, and my wallet is feeling the pain…
Shipping was prompt; I ordered them on Tuesday with standard ground shipping, and — to my shock — they arrived this afternoon. Now my weekend is utterly doomed…

For those who are actually wondering, yes, I’m still alive. I managed to get quite thoroughly distracted, and TuneControl was shoved to the back burner for a while (as were all my other projects). I simply haven’t had the time to work on anything.
Because I decided to buy a house.

I haven’t been able to dedicate as much time to TuneControl as I’d like, but I managed to work on it here and there over the past few weeks. My focus has been on developing the firmware, and this is a new approach for me. Usually I build the hardware first.
It’s early days yet, but there has been some progress.
