So I have just received my new toy. It is a electric monitor buy CurrentCost, I selected this monitor over the others on the market as it out puts an XML data stream. I am hopping to capture this data and publish it to the web.

First impressions of the monitor and the packaging it comes in are very good. It looks like a nice piece of kit. In the box you have the clamp, transmitter, monitor unit and power pack. I also got an extra clamp and a USB data cable.

This video by current cost will give you a better idea of the product (note this is the first generation I have the new cc128):-

So I will be setting up the unit and plugin into my CP with the hope of getting all that lovely data. I will update you to how it goes.

I have given the blog a new look, working on wordpress.com is quite limiting with regards to design. But I have not got the time at the moment to design a wordpress.org blog (no point in using templates if you are using .org). So for now I am still on wordpress.com and have gone for the ‘ChaosTheory’ template.

Let me know your thoughts on this template, I think it is cleaner than the old one. Also I big plus is the extra width of the main column.
