Check your Thinkpads temperatures

Jakob and me just wrote a small bash line that checks the current temperature of the IBM Thinkpad T43p notebook and prints it nicely. Hope we guessed the value meanings correctly.

[geshi lang=bash]$ cat /proc/acpi/ibm/thermal | awk '{ print "CPU:\t" $2 "? C\nPCI:\t" $3 "? C\nHDD:\t" $4 "? C\nGPU:\t" $5 "? C\nBat1:\t" $6 "? C\nBat2:\t" $8 "? C"; }'[/geshi]

Maybe someone finds that useful.
