BTW, did you mean FRAM instead of SRAM? SRAM wouldn't hold the contents after power cycle, but FRAM (made by Ramtron) would. Nice stuff, but expensive.

Oh... I was under the impression SRAM (Static RAM) would hold data after power down... I must read closer.

Okay, SD card.. maybe thats the ticket!

After all this, I hope we didn't scare you off... there isn't anything necessarily wrong with using the internal EEPROM. I know you started out with asking "what's too much", but maybe you could tell us what you had in mind?

Like Jon pointed out, if you write to it just a few times a day you're probably not going to care.

If I can figure out how to interface the DHT11, that is...
