You must have missed the presentation at CLUG several months back by 
Alastair and myself....

Cool.  For those reading and expermimenting with these - get 18D20s, not 
18S20s temperature sensors - all-round better IMO...

I have only two "completed" projects:
  - laser/camera pan/tilt heads 
  - watering system controller (water meter and master control valve 

I've dabbled with various other things; DS18S20s and ULN3003 on 
breadboard, amongst other things.

Alastair ripped the guts out of a cd-duplicator and replaced them with an 
arduino (http://alastair.d-silva.org/orbit-cd-duplicator-rebuild).  His 
latest effort with an arduino is a switchmode voltage regulator
