should this service cease (yes, I'll bite my tongue on that topic ).
Just fyi... Duane is amazingly dedicated in his desire to keep the Chumby infrastructure alive. back when Chumby the company went out of business, he looked at the database that recorded how many individual devices were still hitting the servers, and said to himself "I just can't let this go away, I can't do it to the people" (or something like that).
And as a result, he, personally, took it upon himself, at his own expense, to first keep a stub service running, for over a year, so that while the chumbys didn't have their widgets, they would at least log in, and download a controlpanel, and act as a clock/radio/music player.
All the while, he was rewriting the service so that it could be more economical on the back end, (it used to cost thousands per month) and yet provide almost everything that people had come to love about their chumbys.
We relaunched the service July 1, 2014, and it's been running great ever since.
Is it possible that, someday, maybe, circumstances will change? of course.... but I don't see it happening while Duane's in charge, it's just not in his nature to abandon people like that.
Cleaning up any loose bits and bytes.
