Hot Enough to Boil a Monkey’s Bum

Like much of the U.S., we’re experiencing a heat wave here in Nashville, and the 100-degree temperatures are expected to last throughout the week.

So it’s a bad time for my air conditioning to fail, which unfortunately it did yesterday.

My office, which is on the top level of my house, reached 98 degrees before I shut everything down last night.  I discovered that my computer misbehaves at that temperature, throwing up a nice assortment of BSoDs.  Needless to say, I’ll be working elsewhere until the air conditioning is fixed.

PS: Just in case you’re wondering, the title of this post comes from a Monty Python sketch.

  1. Thanks for the title, Nick. The phrase (complete with Australian accent) frequently echoes through my Python-soaked mind, and it’s a nice surprise to see it in the outside world! ;)

  2. My brother lives in South Carolina (North Charleston) and his central air died the other day. He said it was the hottest (over 100), and more humid than any day he can remember since moving down there. His neighbor was able to fix it luckily (blown capacitor on the main unit), but it was going to take a while to cool back down. As I talked to him, he said the inside of the house was as bad as the outside. It’s bad up here in NY too (90’s and disturbingly high humidity), but I was wearing sweats and smoking a pipe while I talked to him because my little window A/C kicks ass :-p
    (Though a severe thunderstorm did cut my power this morning for almost a full second – I actually had to reach for the remote to turn my A/C back on!)
