Humidity sensor.


Howdy:

Looking for a humidity detector that I can attach to a usb port on my notebook. I'm running debian wheezy xfce. Should include software to display readings and do calibration but I'll write my own if interface specs are included with the device.

Then don't be too surprised when people tell you to look things up yourself.

Grow up...if you're lazy and want to be spoon-fed, don't complain about whatever perceived tone an answer might have. Show some effort and you'll probably get better answers.

Nobody asked you to go look up google for me. You did so on your own volition. Probably just so that you could say something unpleasant and try to make yourself look important. You grow up. In the future unless I specifically ask you to go check google for me, do not do so. If you have nothing supportive to add, your silence will be most welcome.

Sorry, but posting "Looking for a humidity detector that I can attach to a usb port on my notebook", certainly reads like you're asking people to give you answers.

So...if you didn't want people to look it up for you, and didn't ask about a particular sensor/code/operation...why did you bother posting at all?

Everyone needs to settle down. LQ Rules should be honored and followed whenever posting here at LQ. These rules are for everyone;

  • When posting in an existing thread, ensure that what you're posting is on-topic and relevant to the thread. If the content of your post will interfere with the current discussion, you should start a new thread.
  • @OP (BowCatShot) Do not attempt to discipline in the thread. This is a moderated forum by the assigned moderators. If you have a problem with a post then press the Report button and include the reasoning for the Report.
As I said in the opening; Everyone needs to settle down, Now.
