Take a regular component (RCA) cable and cut it in half
strip back the wire. twist the shielding and tin it.
tin and solder 2 resistors to the center wires.
plug the tinned shielding into the ground
plug one of the resistors into pin 9
plug the other resistor into pin 7
set up the Dallas semiconductor Temp Sensor as usual on ground, pin6 and +5v
