    Curt - sure, I'd love to see it.

    I've had a couple of requests about my weather station.  You can see 
an article that I'm in the process of writing, as well as some pics, at 
http://www.mulveyfamily.com/weather/tini/article/ .

   Please note that the article is *UNFINISHED*.  So if anyone actually 
reads it, take that into consideration.  ;-)   

   For anyone who is looking for a cheap APRS weather station - this 
isn't is.  A TINI + socket board alone will run you about $150.  Then 
you have to buy/build the weather sensors.  But the advantage is that 
it's completely stand-alone, and will happily do all your weather 
uploading to the net, RF, Weather Underground, web pages, etc, using 
less than a watt of electricity.  No PC required.

   The weather software ( "OpenWeather" ) is open source.  The 
almost-latest-and-greatest can be retrieved from 
http://sourceforge.net/cvs/?group_id=81616 .  Don't even bother with 
anything other than the CVS version - the released packages are wildly 
out of date.  That's on my to-do list to rectify...
