 Geoff, I bought one of these USB relay controllers but it runs on 
windows not  Linux. I have never used it yet but I consider it worth the 
price. nice little board and if you can get it to run on Linux I would 
like to know. I have the .PDF manual and the .EXE to load the driver on 
Windows in a .rar files I be happy to send ya if you find this interesting.
