Brian's Big Goof
I just discovered a long standing mistake with the DigiTemp hardware. The DS1820 temperature sensors should have their Vdd lines tied to GND for the parasite power mode to work correctly (assuming you aren't using it with an external +5v supply).
With it floating you will notice that it sometimes reads successfully and other times doesn't read anything at all.

Sorry for this big mistake...
