How safe would it be for me to leave a Redstone ][+ clone running 24/7?

Perhaps less importantly, will I be able to leave TimeTrax running without having it crash?

Get a fan . . .

Well. . .

You can obviate the dangers. Keep it free of dust. Get a ventillation fan mounted on it (I think that Kensington made them for Apple II's and that you can occasionally get them on Ebay) to keep it cooler. Use a powerstrip with a built-in circuit breaker. Put it on a metal table/desk. Remove any flamable materials like paper from its' immediate area. Put a smoke detector in the room. It should be fairly safe then.

Isn't TimeTrax the software for programming the Seiko watch? Why do you want to run that for 24/7? How about getting a nice No-Slot clock instead? It keeps the time and date without having to leave your machine on.

Well..

I was thinking of just leaving it on, as a form of organisation (something I dearly need) and have it just sync with my Datagraph every morning. Unfortunatley, I'm having trouble with making it work. See other thread.
