Okay, thanks guys...
so I can use 2164's in an application where they are almost never being 
used and set to "full hot"? I guess I'm just a bit paranoid before 
committing to any design that I'm making more than a few of.. I don't 
want my 10-year-in-the-future-self to be swamped with the task of 
finding a replacement for the 2164 and repairing things for years.
