A heat wave?

Looks like the Europe might have entered into a significant heat wave, maybe worse than most we've experienced so far. I just came from Dubrovnik where the temperatures were around 30 and I thought that was hot until I came to Zagreb. Yesterday was crazy and today it's supposed to be 35 C peak (it's 32 now), but that's nothing compared to the prediction I hear for tomorrow: 39 C!. I haven't seen a temperature so close to 40 for a long time.

What is the temperature where you are?

I guess this might affect the activity on various web forums since some computers, but of course people as well, wont really take these temperatures well just sitting there... and it impacts concentration as well...

At the moment, we have roughly 30 °C. This warmth doesn't cause computer systems to fall out (at least not mine!), but people have better things to do than sit in front of a computer in this weather. Also, Debian Developers have DebConf to worry about ;-)

Yeah I guess in some ways

Yeah I guess in some ways computers are better resilient to temperatures these days than humans. Smiling

My room is always hotter than the outside here (because it's covered with a thin metal), but my CPU is on 51 C only, though growing slowly. I have a big fan blowing across the room (including the computer case).

Btw, I might be wrong about the 39C prediction. It was just word of mouth from my mom, but the forecast here says 36C maximum for this area... not that it makes much of a difference. Sticking out tongue

I don't know about the forecast for tomorrow, but now it's quarter to ten at night and Kontact tells me it's 30 degrees.
Since here in Hong Kong it's always pretty humid (>80%) it's sometimes really uncomfortable.
