Bravo for releasing your code by the way!  We'll need something to
replace UI-View at some point, even though everybody keeps telling
me that it'll live forever due to how well it was written.  ;-)

I just saw another bug this week from a UI-View weather station that
needs fixing.  Perhaps someone is already working on a plug-in to
fix it:  If the barometric pressure is too low, UI-View sends 4
numerals in the field instead of five.  Other clients don't decode
it because it isn't per the spec.

Perhaps we can share code in the future if your code is also GPL'ed
(didn't check the license on SourceForge yet).  I don't know how
hard it is to convert C# to C or C++, or vice-versa.  That might
reduce the amount of work each project has to do in order to stay
current.  That is if we can't entice you over to our project some
day...  hi hi
