Yeah, I hate the smell....haven't been "high" but still don't 
like it!...I take it outside on the stoop and let it run out the 
corner of the chassis, turning the chassis so that it doesn't 
run near the IF cans or other polystyrenes!....I'll use it 
only where I can prevent the runoff from touching plastics or 
fixed capacitors or most other passive components....
