FWIW, my house is already using 18 devices and counting, not including

6 individual computers for the kids, 3 laptops, 2 printers, 2 servers,
my entertainment center in the livingroom, the kitchen machine used
largley as an intercom system, and for morning news and mail reading,
the phone, the cisco router to the DSL line, and my test-play machine.
