I haven't really posted anything worthwhile for a long time on this project, mostly because I've been ridiculously busy with school and other projects.

For a while now, I've been trying to write a C(++) HTTP client for the ESP8266. I'm tired of working on it, and I just want to get to actually logging data.

Back when I decided against NodeMCU, Lua on the ESP8266 was a totally different thing than it is now. It's been open-sourced and improved *incredibly*, and it's so much more reliable and useful now.

I'm going back to Lua, since there's really no reason to be sadistic and force myself to write a C HTTP client.

I have a new Github organization with some libraries I'm working on for Lua, to talk to Phant and Plot.ly. Hopefully I'll have something working before the end of the day :)
