17,000 lights strong, Alek Komarnitsky's Christmas lights show stole the hearts of 'Net nerds everywhere last year. He claimed Web surfers could turn off and on his lights via their computers last year.

One catch: It was a hoax, one worthy of coal in the stocking.

This year, Alek says it's legitimate. While visions of IP routers danced in his head, he strung up three Web cams and other high-tech paraphernalia to produce the real thing.

But is it?
