New dellfand

If anyone is interested, I have made a new version of dellfand. This version supports passing temperatures as well as displaying them in Fahrenheit with a new optional switch. I have also added a new temperature parameter to prevent the fan from going from low to high and back to low in a short period of time in order to provide better cooling when the cpu gets hot. Made some minor changes to some of the fan status reports and improved the documentation in the README file. I'll be happy to upload it here if anyone wants it. Or even better tell me a better place to put it.

I have decided to post the new dellfand here as a base64 text file. Anyone who is interested in it can just download the text file and run it through base64 to convert it back to a binary file. Hopefully someone can find a better place to put it for download. I know that some of you that use dellfand were probably hoping that my changes would add in support for the second fan. Unfortunately I only have a Dell laptop with only one fan and so I have no way of being able to add in that support. Also the program would have to be redesigned to handle two fans.
