Raspberry Pi + Weather Station = A bit of fun

Over the past six months or so I have been working on a new release of the UK Met Office's WOW service.

In the end I bought him a USB weather station and a Raspberry Pi and hooked the two together to upload data to the web. I have finally gotten around to writing up some instructions for the project and have posted them on github along with a couple of bash and udev files to make the process easier.
