No problem at all, I wanted to make sure the app was stable (or actually working!) before doing some UI tweaks.

I'm hesitant to call the address 'ip address' because you can enter a hostname such as BCS or MikesBCS or something like that. I'm assuming you can reset the hostname in BCS preferences. I will add a label to remind users that http:// is not needed and remove it if entered. Same with : port.

For the delay, I agree - if users are not using a relatively short delay, it's ridiculous to enter some crazy amount of seconds for delay. I updated it with three controls instead. You may need to reset your config with the new version because of this. Just because i'm curious - what delay are you guys using with this?

I think the next change I will make is to improve error logging. I don't really like filling the CSV with error messages, so i will probably add an error log file in the event errors occur. That will probably happen after a bit. I decided to take down the old brew shed (8'x12'x8') yesterday so the wife can work on her garden. My back resents that decision.

I've been using this app as a "Black Box" the last two brews, using my Windows Laptop & a Toshiba Windows tablet during brew day. Thanks again Mike Russell for sharing this with all of us BCS'ers!

Heck yeah, I'm glad it is getting used.

Have you found much use for the data that comes out of it? Mostly is it for record keeping or curiosity?

For me it's great to have a file with all of the temperature probe readings and their date/times. Invaluable information if I want to look back at the brewday among other things.

how hard would this be to port/adapt/whatever to run on rPi? specifically the rPi Zero W?

I bought my first to use for Tilt Pi, and then bought another to play with.. I did the LAMP server install pretty much like the following link with the addition of phpmyadmin
