Yes and no ;)

My buddy's oscilloscope is really telling. We've tried a few different options. I think we'll be getting together sometime this next week and try to finalize it.

My daughter and I have the thermistors working and reading properly. We're working on some "glue" programming now- all the stuff that keeps the individual parts and features working together.

We still have to work out a menu system, though we may wait on that, opting for a computer based wireless interface for now. Work out the functions and details first, then distill them into a button driven menu system.
