Weather Toys: Building and Hacking Your Own 1-Wire Weather Station

I did a search and was surprised to not find any mention of this on Stormtrack, so thought I'd pass it along. Looks like it's chock full of UltraNerdy fun (particularly for over the off-season):

Weather Toys: Building and Hacking Your Own 1-Wire Weather Station is a 504 page book published October 16, 2006. It has a companion web site:
WeatherToys.net with downloadable code and even a sample chapter (pdf) of the book. I've never been handy electronically, but this looks tempting.

Anybody playing with this yet? If and when you do, post here about it will ya?

Looks interesting enough, too bad it's for Java (I only say this because I'm not a fan of Java, not because it's a bad language). I'm working on new software for an anemometer by Inspeed with Python, which uses the DB-9 serial port for communication. My father has an old weather station that works via the serial port so I'll probably take that and further develop my software.
