The Geek shall inherit the earth

I had dinner party a while back, despite clear instructions, and my proximity to a local Landmark my guests couldn't find the house without calling in the dark. The house number is black on dark wood, hardly obvious.

So I set about remedying this. Given I live in the land of neon, a neon house number was the order of the day. After a few hickups wiring it up, it's now all set. Assuming I set the switch, it comes on when it's dark.

How geeky is that! Click the picture for the larger version!

ps. The bumper sticker in the window says "Nice hummer, shame about the penis". It's an homage to the trucks that park outside.
