Temp is go. Humidity is Dallas one-wire which i've not done with
arduino before so i need to just figure that out. Still can't get
anything out of the alcohol gas sensor; might try another one of the
gas sensors just to make sure it's not something weird about how it
works. Haven't tried the pressure one again though last time it was
reading pretty decent though the temperature portion was off (which is
odd since that's required to

How do we want to log it? DB or flat file? (Keeping in mind DB->CSV is
easy) Also i was thinking we could show current stats (sans anything
"sensitive") to the world and full log to members.
Speaking of what goes on the web it'd be nice to know who's in the lab
but again that should only be available to members. Maybe just a "is
the lab open for guests" on the public page. Because that won't really
provide a good idea of if the lab is occupied or not, just if the
occupants are willing to have guests over.

I'm interested in going. Probably going to grab a ticket soon. Who
else is going? Matt D. is on the fence because of AU.

Still trying to figure out if the Tekken monitor is CGA or VGA. Didn't
get a chance to play much with HyperSpin this weekend 'cause friends
were in town.

I will probably be meeting with the head of ODU's engineering program
this week finally (he was sick and forgot he never sent me an email).
He's interested in the lab as a concept and might serve as a good
vetting process for undergrad students so we can only get decent
members from there.
