Our server room air con decided to start leaking over the weekend...
Our office is rather warm with an old squeaky tower fan.
Loving the heat lol.
We spent this morning making one good fan out of the three rubbish ones we've got in the office.
Its now moving the hot air around the room at a frantic pace but not really cooling it.
We've got the door open to the server room letting the cold air into our office, turned it down to a nice 16c to keep the servers and the "SERVANTS" cool lol
We're okay - massive A/C unit in the office designed for a room three times the size!
It's the servers I'm a bit worried about - the server room A/C is being replaced over the summer as it's more than a bit useless.
Was OK at one job but here, in an office so small I can touch the sides if I stretch my arms out, it is getting a bit warm. I have an extractor fan/blower but it doesnt seem to do much good I've got a headache now as well

Two of the raid drives had failed (I think one was just about to and had errors), now I’m not saying the heat was completely responsible, but I’m sure it speeded up the death of the drives. We only found out after a teaching assistant said the teacher had put him in there, so it does not take much to work out what happened. Unfortunately we cannot lock it as it’s used as a store room as well as the server room.

The ICT room's air conditioning is bost.
Kill me. It hurts to live.
the heats being slightly annoying says someone in the server room under the ac unit (they needed all the suite pcs and i needed something running an x64 flavour of windows) but it was actualy quite nice when i drove here a couple of hours ago acording to my car about 19/20 and cloudy. it can stay like that (with a light breeze) all year round for me
its my hayfever thats annoying me got very little sleep thur/fri/sat night so spend most of the weekend falling asleep infront of the tv
Unfortunately, our head and SLT don't see the value of any cooling apparatus in the server room / our office, so we are roasting in 40'c heat, waiting for something to fail.
I've felt dizzy and sick all of the last week!
Strugging? Could do with being a little warmer if you ask me! I hate Winter
That said, yesterday was a bit difficult. Think the flat (dispite the dodgy windows and lack of insulation) holds too much heat in the Summer. Been finding it harder at night to get to sleep. Maybe I need to dig out the fan for night time?
I'd refuse to work in that environment. There isn't a specific legal temperature limit (but there is a lower limit) but 40 degree temperatures are not safe to work in. The TUC has a guide of 30 degrees as a maximum though, as do the HSE.
