I received serveral off list requests, so I looked into this a bit more.

As I said before, I use temper-python on Linux to read my TEMPer's:

All you need to run that program is Python and the pyusb library:


Python runs on pretty much anything half-way sane.  pyusb runs on
Linux, Windblows, OS X, and most POSIX systems.

The paranoids will want to run Wireshark in USB capture mode to be
sure nothing devious is going on.
