	This is interesting and useful information.  I always wondered by the 
manuals state an operational temperature range of about 105 degrees 
Fahrenheit.  45C = 113F

	Of course, it wouldn't be that simple of a solution.  :(  The room is 
air conditioned to a much lower temperature.  About 73F to 78F, most of 
the time.  (About 25C.)
