Here's what I would do. It's REALLY geeky and would require a fairly trivial amount of programming (assuming you have some knowledge of writing code):

I already use a $35 Arduino microcontroller board with an LM34 temperature sensor to feed temperature data to my computer. A Java application that I wrote does the serial communication and data display. With slight modification, the Java app could dump sensor output to an HTML file in the server's /www directory about once per minute.

Where did you find this little guy? I've been out of it for about a year but I really need access to the serial ports via Java. Last I check it was very sketchy espescially with permissions/policy

So as I am walking out the door this morning I think to my self:
"self, going to work on Monday is like knowing you're going to get kicked in the nuts. You just don't know when or by who"

Finally got it done!

I will post what I did when I finish writing it up. It was my first time etching a board, in the future I hope to do a better job.

I would like to find a quick disconnect idea for the sensor it self, that way I could use the same box on different sensors. Like http://www.homebrewtalk.com/showthread.php?t=26400 when I am brewin and others for the Kegerator and Lagering.

Here is a link to a more detailed description http://www.swampwaterbrewery.com/sea...0Temp%20Sensor

Got it on the net using the instructions found here http://www.instructables.com/id/Temp...eatherstation/


Thanks,

Sorry I missed this one!

I developed it on a Windows machine using Rxtx (www.rxtx.org). I found later that the javax.serial library works quite nicely on *nix machines.

My monitoring output is here:

http://adnagaporp.caedmon.net:8000/kegerator/

It's a combination of C++ code on the Arduino, PHP to fetch the data over serial, and RRDTool to graph said data.
