Hum, well, I guess I reckoned that simply running in a Microsoft
environment provided this functionality, albeit without the
corresponding graphics. :-) I suppose a port to Linux would need at
least a card jam capability to really feel right to
alt.folklore.computers regulars.  Lessee, if we were to get a couple
of serial interface temp sensors and drip some water on one, we could
emulate a wet & dry bulb hygrometer as a humidity sensor and then.....

BTW, Bill, thanks for the note on the DVD error.  Filed for future
