The sys admin’s daily grind: Charly’s weather report page

All Weather


To find out what the weather is like, sys admin columnist Charly Kühnast no longer needs to go outdoors get wet, blown away, frozen to death, or sunburned.

Years ago, the wind blew me in the direction of a weather station who sends data not only to the small screen in my cozy living room, but to my PC as well. A few weeks ago, a fellow Linux fan told me about a small weather station for an affordable price of about EUR 100 (US$ 100, UK£ 75). The best thing is it also includes a USB port that gives you access to the weather data. Without much ado, I purchased a WH-1080, which is apparently available from several vendors.
