Care to have a look at the new Talk:ACPI_fan_control_script#Sensor-specific_variable-speed_script? It has various improvements, and while at it I want to change the license from public domain to GPL+GFDL.

I'll try to give the new version a try as soon as possible, but I'm quite busy atm, so it might take a couple of days until I can provide some feedback. Regarding the license change, that's fine with me, after all I didn't do much anyway. :)
BTW, the theft-alert script already scared away a waiter in a cafe once, that'll show em that pushing around other people's notebooks is a big no-no. ;)

I went ahead and migrated it to the article page (after a few more tweaks), since I'm really uncomfortable with the old version. It looked only at the maximum temperature, and while the CPU is speced at 97deg max, other components are speced much lower! If one of those heats up, the old script would fry it.
