Default instant (kind of) whole house power display

So I have recently fallen in love with micro controllers, especially picaxe and I have built a device that counts the infrared pulses from my digital meter and does a calculation and then displays that result every 15 seconds. Each pulse from the meter is supposedly supposed to tell me that I used one watt hour so. I am working on making it wireless to be more convenient but thus far its pretty slick. I just figured out a way to data log onto my computer also so I can graph a days worth of data to see if I can figure out where I can cut. If anyone is interested I can go into more detail or share the circuit and coding for all of it.
