    Well today is day 24 and still have no sign of life [​IMG] I bumped up the temperature to 99.5, but while i was at work it spiked to 102 and I have no idea how long it was at that temperature. Yesterday I started noticing a smell coming from the bator. It's smells more like a mildewing towel than a sulfur smell (what I would imagine rotten eggs to smell like?) Do you think it is the eggs smelling or the moist papers towels mildewing??
