A small script to check temps of (g|c)pu and hdd:

#! /bin/sh

FANSPEEDCPU=`LC_ALL=de_DE_DE cat /sys/devices/temperatures/sensor1_fan_speed | sed -e s#rpm#U\/min#`

dialog --title " Temperatures of my AlBook G4 " \
       --backtitle " `cat /proc/version` at `hostname -f` " \
       --infobox \
"  cpu fan speed:       $FANSPEEDCPU \n \
 cpu limit:           `LC_ALL=de_DE cat /sys/devices/temperatures/sensor1_limit` °C\n \
 cpu temperature:     `LC_ALL=de_DE cat /sys/devices/temperatures/sensor1_temperature` °C\n \
 gpu limit;           `LC_ALL=de_DE cat /sys/devices/temperatures/sensor2_limit` °C \n \
 gpu temperature:     `LC_ALL=de_DE cat /sys/devices/temperatures/sensor2_temperature` °C\n \

  It's a good thing we don't get all
