How is everyone enjoying the summer? Or more importantly how are your computers handling it? My Mac pro shows a cool 31degC on one of my dual core chips in a room which is currently 23degC at 1.21am. Oddly it doesnt rise much even when the room hits almost 30degC during midday when the sun is beating down.

I always like to relax to a nice game of populous or ufo enemy unknown in the evenings, sat out in the garden under one of those umbrella things stuck into the table so I can see my little eee-pc's screen.

Still unusually cold and rainy here. I don't think there's been a single hot day this July. It's starting to freak me out. (normally it's 85+ most days in July, but the past few days it hasn't been above 70, and the weather's been hovering around there)

Well, in my area, we had about 1-2 weeks of 90+ degree weather in early Agust but other than that temps have been steady in the early-late 70's early 80's.

Oh no! Is it too hot for you guys??



Man, why can't fall happen already? I like it in the 60s! (15-21C range)
Looks like I'm moving to Belgium. Can I crash on your couch, dosraider?

...still think it's crazy that it's the same temp here as it is in NSW. Meh

dosraider: I'd advise setting down some plastic on your furniture before letting Worm sleep on it... and not because of the Fahrenheit issue.
