shades of height between say A and B (putting A lowest, C highest here, to
clarify.)  Am I missing something?  Has been a "Bad Brain Day" to some
degree <G>  (There's not a big difference for thermistor B in temperature,
between temperature for water say 1 foot below it and 1 inch below it,
barring splashing, is there?  Has been a while since I last hot-beaded <G>)

Not that I've ever tried this, but I figure the temperature variation
would distribute itself along the tube in some manner [to be measured
and calibrated empirically], and the math would be some weighted
averaging routine. Just a thought. The sorta thing you try once, and
immediately get a strong hunch whether it will ever work or not.
