Greetings to the list,
I have just completed building some of the components of the 
N4XI/X1W-1 weather station. I constructed the RS232 to 1 wire module, 
the barometer module and the DS2423 counter module (for rain gauge 
and wind speed). I constructed everything "ugly" style without 
commercial circuit boards but as neatly as possible cemented onto a 
piece of copper clad board.

I have tested the modules with the tstfind utility and at least some 
of the one wire logic is working ok and also I can see the analogue 
voltage from the op amp circuit for the barometeric pressure sensor 
and its tracking fine.

The Maxim site where I got all my DS series ICs is somewhat 
overwhelming to say the least, and not at all organized in the way my 
mind works. Has anyone written some nice simple standalone windows 
programs (WinXP) which will talk to these modules? or maybe produced 
some VB code which I can use to build on?

Thanks and 73.
