'Twas the night before Christmas,
and while not a creature was stirring (not even an optical mouse),

When out on the Internet there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from my keyboard to see what was the matter.
I knew in a moment it must be Alek's Controllable Christmas Lights Webcam.
But remembered in previous years it was a hoax - /. said damn.
And then, in a twinkling, I realize Alek has done it for real — W'OH!
With 20,000 lights plus giant inflatable Elmo, Frosty, Santa, SpongeBob, and Homer Simpson — D'OH!
The X10 controls and 3 live webcams provide such clarity,
that it has raised over $70,000 for Celiac charity.
'Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!'"

    What kind of troll is this? X10 still sells their products (home automation hardware) and they work well enough. They've cleaned up their act a lot and are no longer the king of internet spam. Actually, it's been years since I've seen X10 spam. Maybe that's because I became a paying customer...
