    Oh yeah, we got that too about an hour ago. Teachers can't understand it, duh. Some of the boys are still wearing jerseys and blazers - I'm hoping they'll start beeping soon and then maybe explode.

    I usually do, but I don't feel too guilty with that temp at the moment as the server room is half full of new PCs in boxes, so there's far less volume to cool.

    It's still stinking hot here but the plus side today is the fact that several rather attractive female members of staff seem to have forgotten that they work in a school....

    Feel the Heat? HSE guidlines < check out the HSE guide lines.

    oh and same here, there appears to be a dress code for men but not for women.

    men:

    Shirt
    tie(optional)
    black trousers
    Black smart shoes

    women

    just appear to wear what they want.

    I'm wearing shorts, and have been for the last week or so. No-one has said a word.

    When it gets too hot I revert to shorts. Some staff and students will invariably require therapy / counselling but I don't care any more.

    Yup, same here too, though there is some discrepancies even between the male staff as well!
    The TA in the Foundation stage gets away with 3/4 length shorts whatever the weather and tshirts with slogans etc on them
    The sports team get jogging bottoms/shorts and school logo tshirts/polo shirts or whatever tshirt they want
    The male teachers have to wear smart shirts tucked into smart trousers, ties optional
    I'm somewhere in between, with my Dickies tough-work black trousers, casual-smart shirt/polo shirt and black trainers

    I used to wear suit+shirt+smart shoes every day, but as I've slowly become more casually dressed over the last few years no-one has said anything so I figure screw it, I'll just go for comfort now!

    Got to agree with you on this one, makes good sense all round.

    Our server rooms are at 19*C, was nice to start the day in their auditing. The main open plan office was stupid, 20 of us in there and the same amount of machines, a few fans, couldn't open windows due to smell from nearby sewerage works and fish factory!!

    Not all of us do! I personally always try to keep reasonably covered yet cool and professional looking at the same time.

    For example today I'm wearing a yellow short sleeve shirt (with a collar so it definitely counts as a shirt), knee length black trousers which are exactly the same as my normal trousers, just that they come up to my knee and the same shoes as normal.

    I've not seen any trousers for blokes which are the same as what I'm wearing today... I'm not actually sure why not though... nothing wrong with a bit of knobbly knee/lower leg!
