After bringing my Nanode based temperature sensor back to life I thought about some other projects that I might do. One was simply to add an external sensor to the Nanode project, and another was to turn my slow cooker into a sous vide water bath (along the lines of ‘Sous Vader‘). Those projects would need […]

I wrote last week about re-establishing my Nanode based temperature monitoring in anticipation of some cold weather. It came, though it’s not as cold as it was last year (when I was seeing -7.5 being recorded):   It’s clearly warmer in the garage than it is outside, where there is snow lying on the ground.

The week afterwards Ken was at the excellent Monkigras event, and did a short […]
