my X10 setup won't work thru the ol' knob-n-tube (already tested
that) installed in my house -- depending on which circuit's going thru
which fuse. However, I've been slowly rewireing the place where I can -
specifically so I can use the X10 modules I have.

He died a few months ago. :-(

Hadn't thought of that... might have to check the lighting shops here to
see what they have in stock...

No electro - and I don't want to go battery - that can get expensive when
the kiddies forget to turn off lights...

Tried that - the back problems hurt worse than the stubbed toes! ;-)

No electro - see above...

It's already on a three-way switch with the bottom of the stairs... do they
make 4-way switches?
And everyone forgot #8: Win a home remodeling contest so I can get $100,000
so I can afford to pay someone *else* to gut & redo the house in an
expedient manner. ;-)
But I'm still not silly for stumbling around in the dark.
