While following here:
I started thinking about a project I did a while back, and how it might be nice to have it send information to a central location where others could view the data, and Thingspeak looks like a viable option.
I have an old Seeedstudio v1.1 W5100 ethernet shield, a Wiznet WIZ550io module that Chuck Baird gave me many years ago.
I suppose either one of them would work, but in the interests of speed and low Advil consumption I could be persuaded to look at a more up to date shield if anyone has a recommendation of one they use.
I looked at the official Arduino Ethernet shield and at $25.00 its not overpriced, but at teh same time I think there could be a more economical option.
