I dunno... a few seconds of Google searching doesn't turn up any
actual Nest/SNMP info, and the weather station is an Acu-Rite, I
think, and same problem.  I feel sort of guilty for having these
devices now, like I bought a car and was surprised it didn't have
seatbelts installed.

I'd like to set up some sort of small machine that could connect back to my network in the US and give me a way to diagnose problems, or log something more than the absence of a link.
