USB thermometer that works w/ linux?


Hi, I'm a high school student, and in my chemistry class we are required to do a science fair project, and I'm doing a c++ Celsius to Kelvin converter. My question is, does anyone know of a thermometer that will plug into a USB port(or other port on my computer that will allow me to use the input) that works under linux? If anyone knows anything, it would be greatly appreciated.

Oh yeah, I would prefer this thermometer be cheap (<$30). Thanks

yes, I'm really from Maine. I'm fairly familiar w/ debian. I'm 16 though and I started about a year ago so I can't guarentee that I can help. E-mail me at mandebian@gmail.com. The spiderplant.com site apparently has gone out of business and I don't know how to do any programmig. Thanks though

would this work under linux? http://www.vernier.com/go/gotemp.html,
I'd prefer something that would work under linux, but if it only works on windows then I can deal.
