Hehehe thanks man... Don't worry I'm sure when you get around to it you'll have lots of ideas from all the commercial stuff you have played with. Thats what led me down this path... I spent thousands on commercial gear over many years...
I'd totally be down to collaborate on something... I posted in one of the other threads that I wanted to make an open source grow management solution's... And I'm totally serious about that. I pisses me off that this stuff is fairly basic as far as regulation and control designs go, but people charge ass-rape prices for it... And the software looks l a m e... "Oh yeh.... I want a big stop light to tell me when things are going wrong... "
Just keep working on the ideas man... I spend months sketching stuff out and drawing flow charts for how I want the software to run before I even write a line of code... Actually that goes for everything... The best skill you can develop is the ability to communicate your ideas!
Your are absolutely the best. I have totally been wanting to design my own fully automated grow lab. I have been so busy with school work that I never have the time to tinker around with anything. I basically have to go buy pre-built setups and work out of the box when I could be using my creative juices and build a pimp rig like yours or even collaborating with you on the next step to the future of growing.
Just know I will be a follower from here on out and I bow down to your geekyness
