Displaying Toodledo on a Betabrite LED Display FTW

Before I do anything else, take a look at this:

The source code for setting this up is here:

I've made it as clear as I can, but you will most probably need to be a developer or enthusiast to set this up. The good news is that's pretty cheap: Betabrite costs around $150 (or much less on eBay), and a cheap Unix server (using an Atom chip) may cost $169.

I've set up the code so that it only displays things which are either starred, or past their due date, which reduces the amount of overload time. The script goes out and polls the website for changes every minute, and changes the displayed task every five seconds.

That is very cool. Would be nice to have it customizable, such as show things due today or things with the Next Action.

I do not have a betabrite, but have always wanted one. Now I have a reason to get one lol.

Making it customizable is probably the next step -- I have the web server accessible, so I just need to expose a query interface to the web and then carry that back through.

I was having some problems with the session not being able to get new keys and invalidating, but I think I've ironed those out now -- it now updates only every 5 minutes, and tries to keep the existing key for as long as possible.
