Well this was a waste of time

The control board decided to crap out and now it refuses to work. IT did this before but resetting it would fix the problem. Now it wont work period. As soon as I try to write anything to it, it just starts spitting out bullshit.

Canakit has not replied to any of my emails on this issue, so it looks like I'm on my own. I need to find another board that can interface with the Dallas thermal sensors.

What's screwed up is if I use picocom, it works fine, but the minute I try to use echo/cat or my own code, it does this crap. I even copied the code from picocom into my own code, and it STILL does it. I'm at a loss. This project was just too good to be true. I was SO close too. :( I had to go reboot that server... but guess it's better now, than down the line when a relay is turned on and I'm not home...
