Working hard (both me and the air conditioner)

It’s so hot outside.

hmm, now that I think about it, that first line is problably on hundreds of blogs right now… It’s not exactly a great work of literary art is it? But still, it works, and I’m to hot to care.

Once the outside temp hits over 100 our apartment air conditioner takes on more than it can handle. With my server stack and a few overly hot processors around here, it’s especially bad. But even before I started having a few servers in my network room, this apartment is hard to keep cool in the summer. Now, the advantage to having a few to many computers around is that unless the temps fall into the teens, we don’t have to turn on the heat. Part of that is living on the second floor. Anyway. it’s hot.

I’ve been trying to figure out what to say lately. I’ve been in a cycle of camping and out of town trips that have prevented me from writing. I’d really love to talk about the mid east conflicts, but that would open up a whole can of worms that I don’t have the time to fully discuss. Otherwise, I have some interesting things going on, but do to client privacy and ethics…. you get the idea.

For now, I guess it’s just fair to say; it’s summer, it’s hot, I’ve been spending more time in the mountains than on the computer. Speaking of which, Joy and I are going backpacking for a couple days tomorrow. I left my digital camera in salmon, so no pics this time.
