Joe, yes of course you should. Many chemical reactions approximately double
in rate for a 10 deg C rise in temperature. We have to assume something
average as Guy wouldn't tell me what material he uses. At Los Alamos, I
guess water boils at about 92 C, so I think that about 1.8 sec should do
nicely! Set the metronome at 55.55555 instead of 60 :-).

See you in Santa Fe soon at Kammermusik
