Topic: I am in over my head. FREAK!
I want to make the transition when Chumby.com goes down but I am outclassed to do this. I don't even write html. It is just over my head. I wish there was a fix that was more for MS people and not for Linux people. I wish I could go with Linux but my brain cannot seem to wrap around it. I would like to have a dozen apps or so (Weather Happenings, couple of news apps, couple of rss feeds, gmail and aim mail) and be able to do most of the music things especially Pandora, Shoutcast, etc and My Streams and Squeezebox. I can program a VCR and I do some computer stuff but this is hurting my brain to think about this and it may frustrate me to death and I may end up drop kicking the Chumby out window. (I really don't want to do that because it really is a cool item). I read Zurk's manual some and 60% or more is not making it to my comfort center. I get the gist of what is needed but I haven't built my courage up to do it yet. I did download puTTY to my laptop but that is as far as I have gotten. Well, I did try out the online usb trick and it seems to do something. I can only get one app to work and it doesn't show the weather from my area. I tried to look into the app to change the area but I have no clue. DO I need to just sell this box on eBay and just dream about what Chumbyville would be like if I was more chumby literate? Is there a very,very siimple fix for this? Have mercy!
