I'm formulating plans for the next phase of #smarthome stuff: @ZWave dimmers (which I've already ordered from @smartest_house), trying out some #zigbee bulbs other than #PhilipsHue and flashing #Tasmota onto everything that'll take it (we have at least a dozen cheap smart plugs).

Could this phone call be an email?
Could this email be a text?
Could this text be unsent?

Could we, by game trails & forgotten paths, vanish into the trees?
