68 degrees C is quite high, even for a peak value. I wouldn't want any
of my CPUs to reach that temperature.

The default is actually reset=0/init=1.

Thanks for the nice words :') These are really valuable as these are
almost the only reward we ever get. Unhappy users usually make much
more noise than happy ones, and at times this becomes very frustrating,
although I guess it's unavoidable.
