Overall, the Christmas holiday went over in a low-key sort of way. The biggest challenge has been the weather here in my neck of the woods. Over the past week and a half, we have been pounded with snow. I gave up digging my car out from under it all, despite the HOA’s best efforts to lend a hand. Surrounding areas are being hit pretty hard as well. But because we live so close to the mountains, I think we are getting the worst of it even while other areas like Seattle must seem like they are being hit pretty hard as well.

On a positive front, my wife purchased a Chumby for me this holiday season. Right from the beginning, it has been a blast to explore. Diffcult to explain, I would refer to it as a widget engine in a hardware form. Still working with it, even looking to seeing how difficult it might be to develop something for it, time allowing.

Do you Chumby? Chris does — do you?
