Finally got the 7 segment display I've been meaning to build for a while built, its great being able to see power usage without having to have the computer on and the big green digits are really nice and clear.
Here's a video of it in action with a bit on pachube and appspot at the end:
Ive got an asus rooter on order and an arduino ethernet board to play about with so hopefully will not need the computer to be on all the time for data logging soon. Id also like to have a look at enclosures for the display to make things look nice.
