Finally, after 3ish months of the service being down, my Ambient Orb is working again. And the program I wrote (well, helped write) for it works.

So now I have a glowing orb in my home that turns red for 12 hours after a Phillies win, and turns blue for 12 hours after a Phillies loss.

Aside from being really awesome, it's now the best way for me to know the result of a Friday night Phillies game before I go to sleep, since I won't use my computer/phone/TV/radio like I will the rest of the week.

It's also pretty cool because I think this is the first time I successfully completed a computer program, written on my own free time, to do something actually useful.
