isent that the linux bootloader?
-Onboard temperature monitoring is pointless, you are better off giving your dog 100 buscuits to eat, letting it eat for 3 minutes then counting the remaining biscuits and using this number as your load temp. Give the dog another minute of eating to get idle temp..
For greedy fat dogs/prescott use 200 biscuits, for small dogs/via chips use only 50.
