I don’t think there is any need to explain what a RaspberryPI is? As simple but very cheap small computer. he size of a deck of cards and costing 30£. It is USB powered and provides among other ports an Ethernet port.
Well, my first use of one of the little devices is to capture the data from a cheap USB weather station (£50 at Maplin), format the data, generate some nice graphs and push it online to my website.
You can find the full and updated result at weather.mikehellers.com
If there is interest, I will provide the full details of the setup in a later post.
