I just bought three of the Magnavox lamp modules at www.smarthome.com.
They were just $2.49 apiece.

Does anybody have any X-10 software for the Apple II? I just got a few
cards, but no software or manuals to go with them. Right now I'm using
an old Radio Shack HomeMinder to control the lights. Or light, rather.
:) I've only got one lamp hooked up at the moment and its sitting right
beside the controller, anyway.
