I've decided to enter Spinneret Web Server design contest.

IP Thermometer is a small IP based ethernet device connected to local network comunicating with Unix based server for data collecting.

IP Thermometer:
- Console Configuration (USB)
- WEB configuration
- WEB status
- IP DHCP protocol
- several temperature sensors
- internal SD card logging
- IP NTP protocol for clock setting

Unix server for data collecting:
- OpenBSD/PC-BSD default instalation
- NetCat or Apache listening port for data receiving from several IP Thermometers
- RRDTOOL database for storing data

Changing Unix configuration:
- OpenBSD/PC-BSD default instalation
- SYMON (lightweight system monitor) http://www.xs4all.nl/~wpd/symon/index.html

Symon is lightweight system monitor for xBSD/Linux which accept UDP messages on port 2100.
