Cool new book
« on: December 21, 2006, 07:43:17 PM »
Late Christmas gift?

This is a book instructing how to completely build a 1-Wire station. Looks promising.

I was at Barnes & Noble last week and I saw that book there. Almost bought it but I already had a bunch I was buying for xmas gifts.
Let us know how it is.

I called the local bookstores and no one had it. So, I had to order it. It should be here by January 5. :?

I'll be getting mine around January 3rd.  I was looking for a new project and this looks like it will do nicely! :)

Same reason as me! Looks like a nice, long weekend project for months! Are you going to build everything, or just a few things?
