    I suppose eventually there will be a film where the 1980s and sci-fi references are so thick that the main character will drive a DeLorean with warp...

    The cooling fans switch on when the gauge sender is at about 158 Ohms and switch off at about 172 Ohms. What I'd really like to do is replace the...
