A new project has been added to the sidebar after consuming a number of days of my time. fitbitd lets you synchronise a FitBit tracker using a Linux machine, because I grew tired of firing up a windows virtual machine to do so.

It is all shiny and smooth though :) Progress may have to be slow until exams finish…

Sure, whack in some more RAM.
