Default Bottling Temps?

When I started brewing I jumped right in to kegging. 5 days ago I bottled my first batch (Porter). Since they have been conditioning in the bottle I've set them at room temp which ranges from 71-76. Is this ok?....or to high? I've noticed a nice bit of sediment at the bottom of each bottle. Is that good at this stage?

They are fine for carbonating in the short term. I wouldn't keep them at that temp for long term storage.
I love the sound of an airlock bubbling in the morning. It sounds like.....VICTORY.

Sediment is normal. Those are fine temps for carbonating. Long term storage is better at cellar temps, like 50.
