I'm glad to see the site is back.
My name is Steve and I live about 20 something minutes outside Manhattan. I've been working in the IT field for about 10 years. Currently I am an Engineer\IT Manager\Programmer. I am also a Freemason. I LOVE gadgets and find myself getting more and more into the HA.

"Hi Steeeeeve"

Welcome to the boards. Sounds like you will be a great asset to our community. What hardware/Software do you use or have you used for your home automation, Theater, and security setups?

Ewww Someone is cooking fish at work. I hate when they do that.
