'[OT:] Just FYI...'

I'm currently enjoying my first cup of tea in my
"PIClist-mug" that arrived earlier today. My wife
just shaked her head when I tried to explain why I
had ordered a mug from the US :-)

Regards
Jan-Erik.

But down there I would have thought there would be even more polystyrene
cold beverage holders :))))))

Neoprene is more popular though.

but of course there are those days when its just toooooo bloody hot to let
your drink stand around long enough to even think about getting warm, I was
getting to a site this morning at 0615 I dont know what temp it was but I'm
pretty fit and I was saturated with sweat within 15-20mins without doing
anything strenuous.

There are more beverage insulator's than there are 'mugs*' thankfully :-))))

Yeah, Auckland is like that at the moment. The heat and
humidity is horrible - I don't remember it being like this for
quite a few years. Having a couple of monitors on doesn't
help either

I have 1/2 dozen 12V fans from old PSUs and scatter them
around the room at this time of year, makes work and sleep
bearable. Foregoing the one-piece Deputy Dawg flannelette
jammies (with EZ-go flap) is a must of course. Programming
with hot puffy feet in a bowl of cold water is a big help too, and
they're nice and cool and mozziebiteless come bed-time

It is miserably cold on the US east coast right now, so hot and humid
actually sounds pretty nice...well until it actually is I guess.

Hot I don't mind so much as humid. There's little escape from
humid. I'm OK with cold, at least you can dress for it and doing
any physical activity doesn't leave you soaked. I wonder about
the effect of sweat acid on circuit boards etc, very hard keeping
your hands clean and dry

OTOH at least it's quiet outside. Usually at this time of year
the air is full of the sound of cicadas, which can get on your
threepenny bits when you're trying to concentrate, but maybe
the high humidity has done something to them. Although I've
never seen so many praying mantises, and they're great cicada
munchers, right down to the last feeble buzz

You've obviously never played ice hockey - the absolutely sweatiest
thing I've ever done.

> get on your threepenny bits

OK, I thought I'd heard them all, or at least most of them, but is there
some hidden meaning here? Yet another case of two countries separated by
a common language.

I have a copper-coated board (never got round to etching it) that has my fingerprints etched into the surface,
accidentally!  I don't know if it was particularly sweaty weather at the time, but I didn't notice it at the
time - it "developed" over a few days.

That'll get the non-Brits guessing :-)

No, I haven't played ice hockey, but I have "pucked around",
and that gets pretty warmish. Doesn't usually end with a punch-
up either. Unless the boyfriend turns up unexpectedly of course

       Ahh air conditioning, how would I live without it! For what it's worth, it
was -20C in the car this morning where I live... :) TTYL

ya know those cicadas can get up to like 120db+, deafining when you are on a
long drive without AC.

I drive a convertible, and the noise those things make without a roof to
protect you is incredible!
