I just got a Chumby, primarily to let me create a widget to run on it: it’s a clock that displays predictions of when the Portland Streetcar will be passing the stops nearest my home.Green dots are northbound; red are southbound. Armed with this, I know exactly when I need to leave the house to avoid a long wait.

(I wrote this using OpenLaszlo — I started with a “clock” demo of theirs, and added some dots and a bit of data retrieval.)

Update, July 21, 2016: This stopped working when Chumby went out of business, so I’ve removed the now-broken Flash widgets that used to appear in this post.
