Probably a bad day and time to ask but does anyone know of an app that would put the latest Free Republic posts on a Chumby?
Don't know what a Chumby is? Lookie here!
I have a Chumby One, you have to scroll down a bit to see it. It's smaller than the Chumby8 but I LOVE it!
Think of it as an alarm clock on steroids.
Mine does get lots of stuff including news from several sources, several types of internet and terrestrial radio, webcams and more.
I'd really like to get FR on it, maybe an RSS feed? The newest Chumbys have limited browsers built in but I don't want to upgrade because they are bigger and mine is just the right size.
The specs say a WebKit browser is “coming soon” for the Chumby One. That should do the trick.
Hope so! I know it runs Linux and you can sorta hack it with a usb junp drive but I haven’t had the courage to try.

There are RSS feeds here. For the main forum feed, it’s http://www.freerepublic.com/tag/*/feed.rss
I’m pretty sure you can replace the “*” with any “keyword” and get a feed for that keyword. For example http://www.freerepublic.com/tag/teapartyrebellion/feed.rss
Anthony Weiner, is that you?
