Yes, again Alek Komar has set up 15,000 christmas lights so that you can control them from his website. Apparently over 11,000 people turned them on and off yesterday … I don’t have the first idea how it works, but do go and have a look – donations accepted, and these will go to the University of Maryland Center for Celiac Research.

Don’t forget about the time differences – you can switch the lights on and off between 1700 and 2200 local time. Anything else and I guess his neighbours would have something to complain about!

15,000 lights – quite extraordinary.
