28 C -- that's starting to get toasty, tho' my office hits it mid-winter (heating on, large window facing south over Heathrow, several computers and an old Sony CRT terminal running...) It's cooler here at home; 11.4 C (90% RH) outside, 25 C (43% RH) at the moment. Hmm, 25 C, perhaps I should open a window. Must admit, it's nice shirtsleeve temperature in the Rechenzentrum à ce moment!

Toasty? The temperature in my room is usually in the mid 30°s sometimes high 30°s. I think 29°c is the lowest it's ever been.

Mark. I guess it was urgent. You forgot the "c".

Well, it's down to 70f here now, so all rigs on deck for the night.
Got about 81f in the crunching den. About the max I can go before some rigs start getting wonky.

Will have to shut down in the morning, headed back up to 82 outside again.

Yeah looks like next week I start scaling my work back for the summer. I don't want large bills this summer. I may be a nights only cruncher for the summer with 1/2 my CPU cores offline.

Well here in Indio,Ca. its been 100-107f in the daytime. Thank god for AC. Computer is running at about 100f and no problems. Of course it helped I blew out some of the dust it had collected over the last few months

Had record highs of near 90f here today, had everything shut down except 1 rig.
It's now dropped to near 60f....ahhhhh, much better now. All rigs up for the night again.

82F here today been dropping in the 60's at night. Only getting warmer by the day. I should survive this summer decently though. I upgraded my water cooling last year and this year the internals on my main rig are lower wattage and lower heat by ~10C. So it's going to be interesting as the room they are in during the high 90F-100F days gets up into the low 80's during the days if I forget to hit my room AC on versus the full house conditioner. Maybe some of the changes I made last year will pay off!

Bought machines crunching happily along at 60C.

Hmm, ISTR from my high-school geography that the average summer temperature in Darwin is 33 C -- and the average winter temperature is 31 C! (I used to stay in Canberra during the summer when I was at Uni rather than going back home to Byron Bay; 42 C and low humidity suited me better than 28 C and 100% humidity.)

I just shut down for the summer. Central air draws big power.. No sense giving it even more work.

Back in the fall, hopefully with another rig to heat my place!

Well even in the Netherlands we've got a heatwave, 30C, will shut 2 boxes today.
I'll wonder how long it lasts.

Getting drunk remains the offical sport.
Going fishing the most often used excuse/reason.

Mark -

I'm with you. I don't know what I'm going to do exactly, but I have to move some of the computers somewhere else, I think.

I've got a situation where on my floor my suite is the only one not-occupied by an engineering firm. All the guys and gals are nice as they can be, but my office is fair sized with one heating/cooling vent in it, and one of theirs is really small with the same air delivery.

That office is occupied by a 50+ year old lady. Very nice woman. I like her.

She vacillates between being nominally chilled if air moves anywhere in her general vicinity, broken by the occasional hormonal "energy surge" and then there is no such thing as a cool enough wind to make her comfortable.

In the afternoon, when she goes home, she "forgets" that she's turned the air conditioning OFF. ...not the thermostat up, but to the OFF position.

So, I walk into a warm building yesterday evening after a warm day and think, "Uh oh." Before I open my office door I can feel the heat radiating from it.

My office was like a convection oven. I'll bet it was at least 110F in there. nVIDIA cards had downclocked trying to save their own lives, which can't be good for them. I had to open the windows and doors (in the summer...in MS) to try to cool it down enough for me to be able to stand being in there.

I've spoken to The Chief about it, so hopefully that won't happen again, but even with the ac running all night long it was just barely bearable in there at 5:00 this morning.

I just thought I'd say, "I feel your pain."

For me it isn't going to so-much be distributed computing as distributing computers.

Going to be shutting down my server when it runs dry I think. Less because of heat and more because of other tasks I need it freed up on. Multiple roms ripping and encoding movies for the new home server installation! Forgot all about doing that after building it a few weeks ago till the wife reminded me of her movies haha.
