     71=== Attribute 194 (Temperature Celsius) behaves strangely on my Seagate disk ===
     72
     73Some Seagate disks store the current temperature Celsius in both the RAW and NORMALIZED Attribute 194 values, and the maximum lifetime temperature in Celsius in the WORST value. Since cooler is better, this means that in this case, ''lower'' NORMALIZED Attribute values are farther from failure, and that over time the WORST Attribute values get ''larger'', not ''smaller'' (as with other Attributes).
