Can I nip this one in the bud and state that I was thinking of some for of
intelligent programmer which turned the lamp off before doing a blank check?
But having said that, the comment made about heat from the lamp operation is a
good one - I suspect that would mean that there's a potential for damage if
the device was read without letting it cool properly first.
