Oh, that vertical market thing again. . . land of proprietary software <g>.

I have been around HVAC land a bit, and have never heard of anything 
you're looking for Josh.

Actually, do some heavy googling because FBSD's PHK is apparently doing 
many things in that arena with Soekris boxes. . .

But you'd have to agree with Alex that it seems frivilous to go this 
route.  It might make sense to figure out getting data over RS485 to a 
box, then what would allow you to tail the data over that route. . .
