    Would have 'thirded' (I think I must made that up) but 2 people in the same day mentioned that it would be beneficial to have air con in my room. So fingers crossed Currently a tiny desk fan placed next to the open window to try and suck some fresh air in.

    Pretty much the same as Russ - used to have a seperate server room, but we're losing it I'm now making the case that the excessive heat means that the servers are at risk of failing Air con here I come

    My office is a cupboard so it dont really affect me lol as any amount of wind sweeps through the room like a wind tunnel.

    Tis good for my babys (servers) tho - probably why they are lasting so long lol

    Bloody froze when its not hot tho

    Re: How do you like to keep cool during these hot spells?

    My current server room is an unused lift shart. Temp was hitting 40-odd degrees today! I've had to keep turning a portable air-con unit on in there and blowing the hot air out of the door (not efficient and not secure).

    My office is nice and cool though - North facing wall with an opening window!

    Anyway, the server room will be moving as part of the huge summer project.
