    My goal was to turn lights on and off via cell phone text messaging. Using Bob Paauwe's iLink INSTEON software (http://www.bobsplace.com/ilinks/) as well as Twitter (http://www.twitter.com), I was able to network my cell phone with my house's electrical system. The goal is to implement this on a larger scale at the Duke University Smart Home (http://www.smarthome.duke.edu/). Special thanks to Bob Paauwe for developing iLink and helping me with the configuration. Also, thank you to Summize for providing me with API access to Twitter. Send any feedback or suggestions to justin.wickett [AT] duke [DOT] edu or @jwickett on Twitter A tutorial can now be found at http://www.duke.edu/~jyw2/INSTEON.pdf

                      "Maria" is a song from the Broadway musical West Side Story, sung by the lead character Tony. The music was written by Leonard Bernstein and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim. The song was published in 1956. "Maria" is sung by the male lead Tony when he learns the name of the girl he's fallen in love with is "Maria". The name "Maria" is spoken or sung in the song 27 times. It begins in B major and then modulates to E-flat major. The song is widely known for its use of the melodic interval of a tritone in the main theme.
