What a lot of fun this is!!
I have had my weather station for several years now, but didnt have any idea on how to share my data. Luckily, I actually HAVE a friend who made a passing comment and the light dawned.

The outside stuff is the generic stuff one buys as part of a kit from Amazon, of little interest, its just the standard stuff.
The inside bit,,, Ahhh now THATS different.

about 12 years ago, I bought a Toshiba A300 laptop.
Like all these things, and Toshiba is (IMHO) one of the best lappys around, even THAT eventually suffered at the hands of Loki.
It fell off the Kitchen bench and killed itself.
Whats inside this thing? a large SSD, lots of memory and a motherboard that had let all the smoke out when the rapid earthward acceleration stopped. Ohhhh and a seriously beautiful Samsung monitor about 4mm thick
I minute with my friend Amazon and winging its way to me,
Actually, they use small dinghies and a very oldseagull towing it.
Eventually a video driver board arrived. cost to me in New Zealand was $NZ26-00

I have a Latte Panda doing very little, running Windows 10 23 bit 2 G Mem.
Perfect.

All up cost?
$2200 for the laptop
$110 Latte Panda
