I first saw the Chumby last year and thought it would be fun for me and my students to play with. However, I think I'm going to keep this one and replace my alarm clock with it.
Just got it out, programmed it and haven't really done anything yet.
What's a Chumby? www.chumby.com of course!
And here's a picture of it, I hope. Mine is black -- though it doesn't photograph as well.
