I didn't suspect it was digikam's fault. I was just expressing myself,
I don't like seeing Intel processors go above 60. I once had an AMD
Duron up to 108 (that's not a typo) and it's still running, but I've
had a Pentium4 brick at 72 degrees.

It actually was special computer cooling food! We buy frozen spices in
individually compartmented bubble packs, like upside-down ice cube
trays. This makes for lots of surface area, and channels for air. I
sat the laptop right on the container. I haven't eaten of it yet, but
we will soon enough I'm sure. I'll post a photo of the container as a
best misuse of food when the wife returns and brings the camera home.

A: Because it messes up the order in which people normally read text.
Q: Why is top-posting such a bad thing?
