Better still, but more potential to be messy. Another advantage is that
there's no need to waterproof the sensor. I was thinking along the lines
of sticking the wire through a small hole in a bottle cap, so there's
next to no evaporation or spill potential. Even using an open glass of
water, evaporation isn't likely to make enough of a difference given the
accuracy/resolution of a DS18S20.
