Internet connected barometer

Using the Phidget Servo Module, along with a USB Extender and a scheduled Perl script, this internet connected barometer automatically changes to show what the weather is going to be like tomorrow. The data is scraped from WeatherUnderground and then interpreted by the script.
The script also checks for train delays from the Southeastern railway website, along with new e-mails to a special e-mail address. If there are train delays or a new message is in the special inbox, these supercede the weather on the barometer until the delays are cleared/e-mail is read.
