    Stuart

    Can you put me down for a couple of complete kits please.

    Also how much are the double jacks likely to work out at? I could probably use half a dozen of those for less important sensors...

    There's a mention on the digitemp site about putting one at the end of the network. I also found it described in Maxim's AN108 MicroLAN In...
