After trimming the fat off of my code for my drop-box, it is back online again. The server-side scripts had to be rewritten to handle the newer/condensed form of communications. The backend database is being updated to reflect when each box had last been verified along with it’s api endpoint uri. The next step is to process the inventory that the box sends to the server. I have a method that throttles the http requests to prevent problems with people who have multiple drop-boxes sending inventory at once. It also sends a condensed, serialized batch of inventory information (name, type, perms) so that there is less traffic needed.
