No, I haven't fallen of the face of the earth, I just had to deal with a mixture of food poisoning, cold / flu and pre-holiday heavy workload. Oh, and I got a new toy this weekend that's been keeping me busy ...

chumby

I'm on assignment for this, so I won't write too much about it here, but I thought it was worth mentioning that the Chumby uses an integrated Bittorrent client to distribute system updates.

Not sure if this could in theory be used to transform this little guy into a full-fledged Bittorrent device. It has limited RAM and no long-term storage, but then there are those USB ports for mass storage devices ... any tinkerers out there?
