No .. I blew a head gasket a few days ago and there went the money for
the new laptop.

$ cat /proc/acpi/thermal_zone/THRM/trip_points

critical (S5):           115 C
active[0]:               86 C: devices=FAN1 
active[1]:               76 C: devices=FAN0 

I'm not sure where acpi got the idea I have two fans .. I've taken the
laptop apart a couple of times and like it says in the manual, I only
ever saw one :-)

Makes me suspect that with no chance of FAN1 ever kicking in, it might
go from 86C to 115C in a jiffy.

Of course, since acpi on my machine appears to be suffering from double
vision.. I guess I shouldn't believe {every | any}thing it's telling me.

Or scour the acpi doc for an explanation?
