So it is, thanks.  I didn't have an internet to check that this morning. 
Nice but unfortunately it doesn't help with this laptop (HP PV6000).  It's
easy for me to tell _what_ temperature the machine is (without any sensor
but my lap :-) ), but it seems impossible to do anything with the fans
which probably come on when they're needed by the hardware but only have
one speed, and they don't come on when the _wetware_ needs it...
