Introduction: What is a chumby? well take a look here: chumby.com. Cool eh?
Ok now that the excitement has died down and you have thought for a moment about exactly what it is, you say "big deal". Well my friend, a chumby is unique in the fact that it is 100% open source! You want to take a look at it's software? It's hardware? You can. It has built in 802.11g, a QVGA screen, runs linux at 266 Mhz, 32 MB SDRAM, 64 MB flash, and two usb ports.
Why don't I buy one right now? Well, if i did it would be a spiral of out of control buying of the things I want. So for self motivation, I have setup this challenge to myself: If i run 100 miles I can buy one. Not at one time, but as an evening exercise to try to get myself back into shape as a result of the past few years of neglect.
More on what I plan to do with the chumby later...
So come back and check on my progress, I also hope to have project updates as I go.
