LCD is Alive!

Our 4 line 20 character white on blue display from Hacktronics is alive and well. I uploaded the sample sketch and wired the display according to the tutorial that is posted on their website, and everything worked like a charm. Next step is to read the temp sensor and display the current temperature (current values displayed are a mock-up, not being read from a sensor). I need to get a 5k ohm pull up resistor, so stay tuned!

Update: got the resistor, but having problems uploading the onewire.h library

BTW, the Hacktronics LCD Tutorial also worked with the what was previously thought to be a "dead" 2 line Black on Orange LCD display we recieved earlier from GE Tech. Now I have two LCD's to play with.
