    My precision-calibrated temperature monitoring device - a.k.a. the thermometer in my fan - tells me that it's 30C in my office room right now. I can't objectively measure the humidity, but my subjective measurement is: gross.

    Ditto on the temp, verified with a total immersion mercury thermometer, although the calibration ran out on it 5 years back.
    Rest of the house (excluding kitchen and 2 bathrooms) is sitting at 23, but then I have had the air con running all day, which ain't bad seeing as it's only a wee little thing.

    Yup my office is nice and cool, but chucked the missus up in the attic when WFH became a thing for everyone in the house permanently and she has to put up with this :D

    [​IMG]

    Need to sort proper cooling and heating up there, thinking a split AC heatpump thingy is the way forward.

    I think most of the hardware in there has a max 40C ambient, so will probably need to do something sooner rather than later......

    See, why are questions like these not being answered?

    Yup ours turns into a furnace, a couple of velux windows help a bit but it's still toasty. Oh and Baltic in the winter, have to use a mini dehumidifier to keep the condensation off them.

    That was a pre-us-buying-it job though so kinda stuck with it I guess.

    I live in NSW and can say that we get heat and humidity where I am, and it's brutal. When it hits 40 and the humidity is up, the shade, or even being inside, offers little respite.

    Not that we have it as bas as some parts of the country though, we always laugh at Darwin's predictability. Almost every day through the whole of summer it's 40 and showers.

    At times like this I’m happy to be living on the southwest peninsula. Almost always cooler here during hot spells. Temperature indoors peaked at 26C yesterday evening.

    This was my work office yesterday as the Aircon is broke in our section of the office
    PXL_20220711_165611102.jpg

    Then muggins here decides to go and leave his laptop on his desk, so now got to go into work rather than WFH. Luckily I caught the DPD man just down the road and asked him to chuck my parcel in the bin for safekeeping (I'm not carrying 3litres of coolant round). Hopefully the Amazon man follows suit.

    Although I just remembered Mrs crap put loads of food that had gone off in the fridge on Sunday, due to spending the last 2 weeks looking after her aunt. That's gonna be a pretty ripe box when I get home :duh:

    Hey, at least your office has AC, working or not. We don't have it at all, aside from in the server room. The official reason why we can't have it is "someone might complain that they are cold"... and that is coming from the site manager.

    Fair enough, I can see the cost issues, especially when there are more urgent things in need of facilities cash, such as the leaking roof, broken windows, completely shot double glazing units, knackered blinds, and so on. Never would have guessed that I work for a multi million pound international company would you? But hey, the coffee machine is now on free vend...

    Not "ruining," but annoying: both of my Amazon Smart Fart Boxes Air Quality Monitors have stopped working. I mean, they seem to work, but Alexa just says they're not responding. Restarted everything, including the router, removed them and re-added them, factory reset them... nothing.

    Boo-urns.

    My mouse hand flat out refused to click the X in the top right corner. I had to Alt-F4 with my left while it was distracted.

    Close call.

    Went to the doc today. Have only put it off for 5 years.

    20 minute exam confirmed I have arthritis in both knees. Xrays and scans next.

    Join the club!

    if you’re really lucky, you can have it in your ankles, hands and right wrist like me. The wrist problem is caused by old cycling injuries, honest!

    Damn car has a leaky turbo hose. Not life ending, but it can't be seen until week after next. In the meantime, fun with reduced fuel efficiency and bricking it every time I go up a moderately steep hill.
