I'd be worried enough to pickup a solid stopper next order or trip to the LHBS. For now, do what you can.
Just don't put the stopper on before crashing. Carboys can't handle any negative pressure.
Interesting...didn't think too much about this one. The difference in temp will prob be 20 degrees, not sure if that's too much to cause issues, but sounds like I don't want to risk it. Good idea.
