Sandwhy wrote:2) Is there an *easy* way to snap the old thermochron into the new fob? Because I haven't figured out how to yet!
Sandwhy wrote:3) I'm disappointed that there aren't decals/something on the white shield that explains what this is all about; I have many curious passers-by that are always interested in what's going on in my garden - unfortunately I'm not always around to answer questions. It seems that at least the monarchwatch website address or the groovy new MW logo could have been emblazoned on there.... I understand everything costs something though, so this probably was the last thing on everyone's mind.

Sandwhy wrote:Still no luck popping the darned thermochron into the new fob. Even the hubby could not do it!! We'll keep trying.
Sandwhy wrote:Good plan with the "Hi" and "Lo" markings on the fobs - might I suggest a coat of clear nail polish to protect the markings?
My second observation is that I am recording temperature differences between the two loggers, but it occurred to me that I do not know if the differences are real or not. So I did a little "logger validation." [snip]...What is interesting is that they do not record the same temperature. There is a difference of almost 1.0 degree F (0.9 degrees, to be exact) between the two. In a week or so, I am going to repeat the validation sequence and see if the temperature difference between the two loggers is consistent. Assuming it is, there will need to be a correction factor incorporated into the data analysis to determine if the difference between the two heights is real and by what magnitude.

However, as I am a "new egg", what is a logger, and what might one do with it?
