    I work at home... and there are air conditioners of course,

    Heat is very bad to computers, moreover overclocked ones.
    Just GET it OFF out my mind!!

    Hot temperatures make me sleepy. I'm currently in my office, right now, (yes wasting time here) and it's very hot. Near 85F which is 29C or so... the warmth is making want to fall asleep. I prefer anything mid-to-low 70s when working.

    Every winter our office is HOT! I have to wear short sleeve shirts all year round. I even use a fan in my cubicle in the winter! Last winter a co-workers thermometer read 80F. We called maintenance and they fixed it... sort of. It still gets into the mid 70's in the winter.

    At home, in the winter, my thermostat is set to 65-68F.

    I'm wearing a T-shirt & have a fan blowing on me all day long, and I even had to stop drinking coffee because it made me even hotter; while everyone else is working with sweaters on and not even breaking a sweat.
    I really miss that office in Virginia.

    Off topic:

    I remember when I was working in Virginia...
    Hehe. Exactly where in VA?

    On topic:
    Office was warm again today. My desk is near a vent in the ceiling so the temp swings back and forth a lot. Some of the day I have a jacket on and some of the day I don't.

    My visa expired in 2005 and they shut down the office a year later. If it wasn't for that, I'd still be there.

    > zacs7: Is it normally 44C in your office, or is your A/C broken? I'd tell my boss I'm working from home if it was that hot.
    It's hard for the AC to keep up. In summer it sits around the low 30s, and in winter in the low 20s.
    Home isn't much better although the AC does help but my room gets all the sun so it still gets very hot and it has 3 computers all of which are constantly on.

    The biggest problem is that you sweat and it smells :-). My car doesn't have AC so when it's 44C outside I have to wear a different shirt while I drive. hehe. Perhaps the second biggest problem is I can't do what I want outside such as hunting or trail riding .

    I'm so glad I don't live in Australia (or any place near the equator). That kind of weather sounds like my worst nightmare...

    I'm not sure what the temperature is here, but because I find it comfortable it's probably around 18 or 19.

    What can I say? I live in Canada.

    The engine room on the C-Freedom is 100F to 130F (Gulf of Mexico).
    I'm not immature, I'm refined in the opposite direction.
