Re: Repaired/relaunched widgets

OK, the Photobucket stuff should all be working now - both the apps and the built-in Control Panel functionality in the I8 and C8 devices.

Re: Repaired/relaunched widgets

The Sleep Sound Generator should be fixed.

Re: Repaired/relaunched widgets

The "blue octy radio" station "Soarin'" has been restored.

This is the music that plays when you're waiting in line at the "Soarin' over California" ride at Disney's California Adventure park in Anaheim.  It's mostly orchestral movie theme music.

Re: Repaired/relaunched widgets

Fixed "blue octy radio" station "Rhythmatic Radio" - mostly blues, R&B.

Removed JellyRadio (out of business).  If you have this station as an alarm, please switch it - though you probably already noticed that it wasn't waking you up anyway.

Added "Holiday" station to "blue octy radio" - generally plays Christmas music.

Added "Main Street, USA" station to "blue octy radio".

Re: Repaired/relaunched widgets

Added "blue octy radio" station "Third Rock" - mixes Rock music with news from NASA.

Al Jazeera stopped working a few weeks ago.

Apparently the XML feed is parsed properly, but individual articles get an HTTP 503 response error. Here's what I see in the logs:

Re: Repaired/relaunched widgets

It looks like something is awry with the image links.  I'll take a look.
