An end to my GoozexIndy development for now

A few months ago, I was working on the latest version of GoozexIndy, a webapp that lets users of Goozex track to see where the game they traded off or just received has been. I believe it was a great learning experience for how to properly use Ruby on Rails and the myriad of plugins available for it.

However, last month, Goozex did a update and broke their API feeds, crippling almost every application made for it and made enough of a process change to make it a pain for me to update with very little personal benefit.

I had just completed a rewrite that gave an overall better user experience while limiting resource usage of the API feeds to keep from wasting Goozex's resources.

The source code is still available for review and the Heroku server is online in case the API is fixed enough for me to be able to prop up minimal functionality.
