For a techno-klutz like me, the installation went off without a hitch, MANY THANKS for clear directions! The logger is now running in our Children's Learning Garden, in our milkweed bed. While I was determining north, a monarch nectared at the nearby milkweeds. A Monarch monitoring the monitor?
Is there a particular reason to face the logger north?
There is an alarm mentioned, does this mean that logger can sound off if the temperature gets out of safe developmental range?
One item I would like, instructions on making the OneWireViewer or the logger download sheet application appear as a short cut icon on my computer. How to do that may seem basic knowledge to most folks but not to me. As I said, I'm a techno-klutz, have to really work at using remote controls on AV equipment, etc!
I had to download the viewer at the end of one day and give the logger its new mission the next. Because I didn't see it listed when I opened up "my computer" I had to use the computer's search engine to find where the darn application was to relaunch it!
My PC computer at work is put together by a local company with Ram: 256k, Hard Drive: 40gig, & CD-Rom, so it is a mix of makes and models.
Operating System and version: Windows 2000 Professional, Microsoft Office 2000
Spreadsheet program Microsoft Excel is installed, is that what we are using, or is it a separate spreadsheet program that is compatible?
If the download instructions are posted by Thursday, I'll retreive data on that day, or just wait until after Labor Day.
Cool stuff on a hot day!
