Another Hot Summer


Yesterday was ~30C in my area, today was well over 30C during the day (although cooler in the evening). They forecast 33C for tomorrow in Melbourne, but that means where I live it will probably be about 36C (it’s always a few degrees hotter than the overall forecast for the city). Monday is predicted to be 41C and Tuesday may be 32C.

I turned off my SE Linux Play Machine this morning and will probably leave it off until at least Tuesday evening. The hardware I use for the Play Machine is fairly energy efficient, but it’s in a confined space with some other electronic stuff so it’s best not to take chances. I’ll probably leave it offline for about half the duration of January and February.

I miss Amsterdam and London weather.

    Have you seen London and Amsterdam weather at the moment??

    The current forecast for the next few days in Amsterdam has the lowest maximum temperature as -3C and the lowest minimum temperature as -4C. Some days get as hot as 0C, really Amsterdam doesn’t seem to be cold enough for good snow at the moment. So I don’t think that it’s bad.

    London seems to be mostly 0C or slightly warmer. They won’t even have snow!

    In both cases there would be no requirements to turn off servers!
