Hello, I'm new to this stuff but have a decent understanding of how it works.  Ok, I have a few questions that I think have been giving me problems.

1.  data points on channels, is it always set at 15 seconds or does it only update when data comes in?

        I say this because I've changed the time.sleep() and it doesn't seem to affect this.

2. I keep getting this error intermittently and I thought it could be because of the update time.  I get this error sometimes after 1 hour, sometimes after 8.

     raise HTTPError(req.get_full_url(), code, msg, hdrs, fp)
urllib2.HTTPError: HTTP Error 500: Internal Server Error

This is a simple 2 sensor setup going into a channel with two fields coming from a raspberry pi running python 2.7.9

If you are a user of the free service, you can send data up to once every 15s per channel. If you purchase a ThingSpeak license you can send data up to once every 1s. If you send data faster than the limits of your account, you will get an HTTP error status code.

I'm not sure why you are getting a HTTP 500 status code. Could you share the code that results in a 500 status code?
