RPi + Etekcity remote power outlets = Wireless controlled outlets

I was thinking of doing this myself.  But they guy beat me too it.  He uses a Raspberry Pi to controll the Etekcity remotes (run over 433 MHz RF) and an transmitter/reciever module to controll them.  He figured out the signals with a tool called RFSniffer which is part of a project called WiringPi (new one on me).  I like this idea better cause I was just going to hack the remote and trigger the buttons,  This leaves the remote available for use, and I can see if the remote is used to turn something off/on too.
