- set up a VMWare virtual machine with meteohub
Might be a fun exercise and in this way it will not impact your current meteohub setup
Using a VM as a sandbox is a great idea, but given limited time for such things I'm more attracted to the BifferBoard idea because if I can get that to work it perhaps opens up the possibility of plug-ins for MeteoPlug! Also, judging from the version number, the distro I'd be using on the Bifferboard should, I think, already have the TUSB3410 driver in the kernel.
N.B. It would not be the Meteoplug BiferBoard running the plug-ins, that would not be possible. I have in mind a second BifferBoard that runs plug-ins which a Meteoplug client (or a Meteohub) could read via TCP/IP, similar to how a Meteohub or Meteoplug can already set up a station that connects to a plug-in that is actually running on another Meteohub.
I already have the spare BifferBoard (and have had for several months). It's just a matter of finding the spare time to try out the idea...
