    Just in case we don't survive ...

    I am posting this from our IT broom cupboard. We have just had "ventilation" installed. It is not air conditioning. It just drags in air from the outside. We are testing it with the door closed and our big desk fan turned off. We only have one window, which doesn't open and is internal anyway. The temperature is now 27째C and the humidity is 30%. If two dessicated corpses are found in ... here ... tomorrow ... morning ...

    For some odd reason, seeing the word dessicated has made me long for a quarter of coconut mushrooms. Anyone else remember coconut mushrooms?

    Good luck with the ventilating, with that heat and humidity, better hope no-one farts in there!

    Oddly enough, coconut mushrooms aren't the first thing on my mind right now. I can't remember the last time I blinked. Theoretically, farts should increase the humidity a little bit.

    27째c? Fancy swapping for ours? 37째c on a morning, 30째c during the day? No external wall and only a 6" diameter extractor fan into the adjoining ICT room....

    We have similar in our server room, although ours is currently sent to extract air from the server room and vent it to the outside world (our contribution towards global warming!).

    This is better for us as the air inside the building is cooler than what we'd get from outside. We can actually turn it round for the winter months, which is quite neat. We have large vent holes set in the door, so when the fan is really giving it some, there is a quite pronounced breeze through the room!

    I used to work somewhere where the computer room was air-conditioned from floor vents, so if you stood in the wrong place you got a blast of 12C air up your trouser leg!

    I can see this thread turning into either the Monty Python "Life of Brian" dungeon scene ("You lucky, lucky, b*st*rd!") or the one with the Yorkshiremen.

    Ventilation? Best thing the romans ever did for us. ;-)

    Not looking forward to summer heat in this dungeon/server room...

    Time was that I would have been lucky to have 27 degrees, why back in my day I had to go work on the surface of the Sun in nothing but a pair of sandals , for tuppence a fortnight, and I would come home after 15 hours a day and my father would beat me black and blue with a rolled up newspaper until I sang Roll out the Barrel in deep baritone!

    It topped out at 28 degrees in my office today. Opening the door and window lowered it to 27.5... Lovely.
