A site has been established for an internet connected weather station. It is based on the Netgear NSLU2 network storage applicance which can be purchased cheaply world wide. By attaching a Dallas Semiconductor 1-Wire Weather Station it sends the weather information to the ‘net. This project is based on the Weather Underground side, which is sort of a competitor to the FindU.COM/CWOP system that I am more involved with.
News.Com.Au has a story about how a host of new laws are being introduced on Sunday. Mostly they refer to increased allowances for medicare and student allowances, totally missing the changes to a raft of legislation in NSW. I cannot for the life of me remember what is coming in, but I know there is a whole swag of changes coming in.
