So can this thing be programmed using LabVIEW? It does work with Linux and at least some ARM processors.

I should also point out that a solid state hockey puck relay lends itself to being mounted in the same box as the duplex outlet (though you may want to use a fourplex-sized box for the extra room it affords. While the box will provide a bit of a heatsink for the relay, the big advantage is that it allows all the line-voltage components to be installed in one enclosed grounded metal box with only the low voltage (and optically isolated) relay control leads trailing back to the controller board. This will go a long way toward improving the electrical safety of the system.
Ams-Laser: _does any one know how to contact Kit Ryan ? _
Have you tried the email address he included at the top of the "ToasterControl_Ryan_v0.05k8x_testprogram.C" file?
While they are a bit more pricey than a $4 electromechanical relay, a DC-controlled zero-crossing solid-state hockey puck relay seems ideal for this application. For example the $16 Optek OSSRD0004A is up to the task.
No public wish lists :(
