For those of you who want to see what a DSC trace looks like here is one.
For legal reasons I would rather not say what the substance is in the machine, but you should be able to see two endotherms. One is at 90 °C and the other at 130 °C. Sadly the base line is not quite perfect, while in the text books you tend to see perfect looking spectra in real life often things are not quite perfect looking in any spectroscopic method.
