Evil Twin

(no subject)

my ideal tech/home/life/... stuff setup. someday.
I'm just making this post so that I'll have it to reference in the future when I try to remember what I was lusting after.

House:
Power/heat:
 Solar roof, reverse flow with grid for optimal cost/eco solution.
 (New geothermal stuff on the horizon, keep an eye on it. Stock tickers: colcf.pk / boref.pk)
 good insulation (research needed)
 inline water-heater
Critters.

House Design
light light light
hand made furniture, custom (hand made?) lighting
adaptable and well-designed kitchen-social space as well as practical
as much done with sustainable materials as possible
non-traditional heating sources? hot water pipes under the floors...
Workshop/officey space for both of us - - woodworking, etc. for you, craftier for me
Wrestling/punching bag/yoga space with mats, etc.


Entertainment:
Projector (infocus X1) (portable?)
Combo File Server/DVD/DIVX computer (mini-itx solution)
Speakers in every room, independant volume controls.
game system(s)
MAME cabinet
pinball machine? mmm... tasty.

Computers:
Windows Gaming boxen (hooked to projector? otherwise gaming LCD)
Linux Boxen (low power for general use, big slow LCD)
  **wall mount over desk?**

gadgets:
camera. Liking the Pentax Optio 555. 5MP, 5x optical zoom. steve's review is positive.
