Power upload to Pachube!

So here it is - the live feed of my apartment's power consumption using the Bridge!

This has been achieved using a Current Cost ENVI (CC128), plugged into a prototype "Bridge" (basically an Arduino with some cunning software on it) which is then plugged direct into an internet router.

The Bridge will be commercially available in early May.

The timestamp on this is about ten hours out, as I am in Melbourne and this timescale is in Zulu, but you should get the idea. You can see the spikes where I turn the electric hob on, and the cycling of the fridge.
