Garage Raspberry Pi

This pic is of the Raspberry Pi web server in my garage office. In the last year, I have setup a Pi in my garage hooked to 3 Temperature Sensors. One at the ceiling, one at my desk, and one outside. Then I’ve added a Pi in my house to monitor the house temp and one at my office to monitor the temp there as well.
All are running wheezy and a LAMP stack, recording the temps into a mysql database.
All of the data is then consolidated into the Pi in my garage.
The sensors are DS18B20, Dallas One Wire devices and I’m using the python programming as suggested on the website. These folks have amazing tutorials and a great selection of parts for Single Board devices (and much more!). I have made purchases from them and highly recommend them.
