What.... are you trying to say that 28C is hot? Really? Feckin' wimp. :P

This is the temp right now where I live... and it converts to 47C for those that are too lazy to google the conversion. 8-)

Now that's hot! :twisted:

Well, yeah - but it's a dry heat. :roll:

I have Spectrum and I reset power on my modem every day, otherwise my ping goes to crap and my d/l is throttled within a day or two.

I bring my own modem. I refuse to use theirs. I also look at the configuration on the router.

But they were redirecting pages and other things. I switched back to Google, with AT&T as fall-back, for DNS. But they can still do stupid things. It pisses me off with both gaming and Linux browsing that doesn't look like a Windows, Mac/iOS or Android browser string. They are filtering something wrong.

Roger Wilco Jr wrote:My ping is often in the single digits. Mind you, I'm only paying for their basic service (~20Mbps, throttles to 1-3 w/o a reset).

Oh, I have their top option at both of my residences (Orlando and Birmingham). But both neighborhoods are massively over-subscribed with signal issues.

I had no less than four (4) Environmental Engineering classes in college, nearly all of them studying systems with differentials/integrals.

Florida tends to be a huge environmental study -- air, water, porous limestone -- half the state is really under-water, anything south of the line from Tampa to Daytona (Lauderdale and Miami don't naturally exist). The first thing you learn in thermo and fluid dynamics in the 'real, environmental world' is that the biggest issue with heat is ground-level reflection. It's far worse than upper-atmosphere air reflection.

Going way off-topic ...
► Show Spoiler

Case-in-point:

I remember studying this in the early '90s, and one of my instructors predicting that dry, southern and western states like Texas and Arizona, in cities like Austin and Phoenix, would regularly start to hit and break 50C (122F) in the early 21st century, with continued development.

BTW, he was the same instructor who predicted OPEC would eventually be stupid enough to let the average price of gasoline in the US hit US$4/US-gal (US$5/Imp-gal) ...

Again, OT ...
► Show Spoiler

Market costs (despite people claiming it is regulation) pushing everyone to change ... which is what is now happening exactly as he said it would 2 decades ago. He was tough, he wasn't easy, but he didn't let us spew the common US media ignorance. One of the best instructors I ever had, especially the macroeconomics of energy and its impact.

The good news is that we're entering back into the cold cycle of North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO). That means the Gulf Stream that brings the added heat in the summer won't be as bad. But it also means you'll have colder winters for the next 40+ years too.

E.g., just the 20th Century thru today ...

Every freak'n model doesn't work. We're still too ignorant. E.g., We've only had one warm NAO cycle in the age of satellites. Of course it had the most 'named storms.'

45 degrees C in Dubai ... the stones are melting.
I am glad to be in Accra this week, for a mild 28oC.

Ha! how I miss the snow!

That's as maybe....But you have a thing called air conditioning......

It was 28 inside last night as no air con in house......

It was 27 when I got up at 06:00 this morning....

Then went to work in a non air conned office which was hitting 29.5 for most of the day...

Get home and it's 28 inside again......

Talk about energy sapping.....Uncomfortable all day and will be all night....

Just to wake up to another like it tomorrow......

This country aint built for this shit.....

Come to think of it this country aint built for no shit.....

Leaves fall on the rail track...Brings half the fooking network to a standstill as they are the "Wrong" type of leaves.....

2" of snow and the country grinds to a halt......

No Rain for a few weeks = Drought....

Rain for a few weeks = Floods.......

Gets on ya tits......
