No, the temperature hasn't been very stable lately; like I said, we had
an A/C failure last week, and the system temperature went up by over 10
degrees F.  I also have lots of other servers in the room, and none of
them save a drift anything like this one (next best is -28).

I don't speak for anybody but myself - that's enough trouble.
