The wine cellar will know how much you drank last night, and communicate with
the life-critical systems in the car to prevent engine start while you're
over the limit.  When the home BMS network notices that the flow sensor on the
shower hasn't started at the usual time the next morning, it'll play an IVR
out of your home PBX network to tell the boss you're too hungover to come to

Owen's world has built in automated protection to help you through the fact that
IPv6 subnetting will turn you to drink :-)
