Heat Wave

Filed under: Technology; Author: Les Bain; Posted: May 15, 2008 at 10:12 pm;

We are having our first heat wave of the year.  It was over 100 degrees today.  It is not a major problem to survive, it gets hot in the afternoon and then cools off.  It is pleasant now.

There is air conditioning in our apartment, so it is pleasant.

However, my computers have apparently been overheating today.

  • My laptop is sitting on two cold packs now, and it is running consistently for the first time today.
  • My external hard drive has a fan pointed directly at it, and it is running consistently for the first time today.

Yes I do worry about moisture with the cold packs, but I wrap them in paper towels and do my best to keep them dry.
