For those keeping track, while the heat wave continues, I have limited my Seti@home work to almost nothing. Yeah, the heat sucks. Yeah, I'm worried about my computer. The family dog has been taking refuge in the relative relief of the computer room and since the relief is just that - relative, I've been turning off electronical devices as much as possible to lower the heat generated by them.
The only exception is my air filter, which I just turned back on. It doesn't create a lot of heat, nor use a lot of electricity, but since I still stay in here most of the day working, it helps with my allergies. As I said, I worry about the dog, but I'm very allergic to her. Sigh.
Uh anyway, while all that's going on, it's been harder to get anything done. I've done what I can, but to be honest, it's not as much as I was doing just a week ago. Stuff like this just takes more time out of the day.
