    Does it hurt the computer... If the computer is doing something (watching flash, playing a game) that turns on the fan full speed;Does this hurt the computer? There are a few games I like to play and they turn on the fan at full speed (computer gets hot too, on the bottom.)

    If it's not so hot it freezes I'd say you're fine. Sometimes they just get hot, as long as it's not prolonged like my little folding@home experience last winter, there shouldn't be any damage. I sometimes use SMC fan control to run them fast if I'm anticipating a heavy processor load.
