Yeah actually I am familiar with that.   In my last job at the Ottawa
Hospital Research Institute I
had a high school coop for 6 weeks and he implemented a rack
temperature probe system
based on OWFS, 1-wire, and a 1-wire USB dongle plugged into a linux
box.  I actually
spent a fair bit of time last night looking for his code on GitHub
because I know we
encouraged him to open source it and I know he put it there.  But I
could not find it.
It was python based.
