Well, got some stuff done today with the LMCE portion. Got this User Page running, helped some people on IRC, looked for some tuners and some sprinkler stuff, and finally got my telecom stuff running today. I can now get my incoming calls!! I also looked into getting the outside access working, going to have to do some port fowarding on the modem, but it should work. I just don't have the energy to do it tonight. Maybe some time this week.
