    If by 95F you really meant 95F, you should be OK.

    Operating temperature: 50° to 95° F (10° to 35° C)


    My friend Damien has a company that does car mount stuff for the Mac Mini and other pc's. If you're going to mount the mini in a difficult spot, you might want one of these nice cheap Y cables:

    so you can power it off remotely but still remove it if needed.

    What prevents installing an exhaust hose for a small air conditoner? You can run those as far as you want.

      I could have sworn that there used to be on of those A/C's in there. What happened to it?

        There is; it's dying now, but even when it was new, it didn't do much (maybe a 5° difference). We have its tube routed out the hole in the wall which feeds into the 4" gap between buildings, but that probably means that it's just venting heat back into the upstairs lounge -- which, itself, has very little airflow. So the heat isn't going anywhere. There's basically no airflow into or out of this room. There are some ceiling vents, but they don't appear to do anything at all, possibly because they're at the far end of the system, like a mile from the roof fan.

    I've seen the wacky "let's drop some volume" problem on my laptop (Ensoniq chipset, I think) whereby when you reboot the machine, alsa correctly loads and sets the sliders to the saved value, but one channel is somewhat muted. Twitching the slider for the quiet channel in any direction fixes the problem. I got annoyed at this for a while, then modified the startup script to twitch the volume up and down a single notch, and all was well once more.

    How processor intensive is RealProducer? You could probably get away with buying an old G4 tower for cheap and putting 10.4 on it. They aren't the fastest machines on the block-- think 700Mhz or so-- but they have really nice ventilation.

    You mean, out of the faucet part?
