That's been up since late Dec or January (https://www.weather-watch.com/smf/index.php/topic,64374.msg516459.html#msg516459). Hopefully we'll see something more concrete soon  :)

I know the new owners are working on getting Hobby Boards gear ready to sell again but I don't know the timeline of when that will happen.

I am doing great. Moved from Alabama to Colorado near the end of 2016.

I miss doing Hobby Boards but have a much steadier income now and can just do my job and not worry about all the other things like accounting, sales, etc...

Yes i'm wondering the same thing. I'm looking for a few sensors now especially a humidity sensor. My Vantage Vue is 7 years old so want to future proof by having a working 1-wire system ready to go live.
Where are people getting their sensors these days?

Glad to hear Eric is doing well. Always a gentleman to deal with.

Got my Humidity sensor today but its reading 0% in the 1-wire reader software. Does the left leg on the sensor chip look like its connected to anything on your unit??? Disappointing its not work.

Thanks Mike for the msg.

Sorted the problem by connecting the unit directly to my hub rather than via a temp sensor.
