I should have updated this post a while ago, but here it is now! I have completed the NAGBox project and have deployed, not just the 3 to my mother, brother, and sister, but also one to my grandmother. As it turns out, she's legally blind and now living on her own. She can't dial the phone and certainly can't use a computer, so reaching out for assistance is difficult. After making it clear that this is not an emergency assistance device (get one of those "I've fallen and can't get up!" boxes for that), I updated the top of the one I was going to keep for myself so that she could use it. It's got much larger text and is turned horizontal instead of vertical. She can now use it to contact each of her 3 kids (now fully grown adults) when she needs something...or just wants to talk. So far it has been great. She loves it, and I feel awesome for making something that's not only a fun project, but also very useful!

This is the last project post for NAGBox (unless something changes). Thanks for following the project!
