What is this crap?  It's a simple little circuit I built connected to the serial port that measures temperature.  You can get the serial port temperature sensor from here. In time it will grow into a project also connected through the parallel port.  That will allow the software components to control the environment with both heating and cooling.  Not only will the system be able to keep a schedule, but additional sensors on the system could allow it to 'know' if there are people awake, sleeping, or absent in order to make decisions about target temperatures.  And I will be able to control it from anywhere in the world.  So all those times where I suddenly travel across the continent and forget to adjust, I can set a new schedule anyway.
