This isn't really new, but we have dogs now that are more sensitive to heat.  The upper Midwest is currently baking in a heat and humidity wave.  For those reasons, and because I am still somewhat recovering from my recent adventures, Seti@home doesn't run much. 

My house was never designed for such things as weather, electronics, the 20th century (let alone the 21st Century), or air conditioning.  I can compensate, but there really is no airflow.  Air movement seeps rather than flows anywhere.  Because of the poor dogs, I've cut down on everything that produces heat as much as possible.  No television during the afternoons, computers mostly off, and so forth.  It's a pain, but they seem to appreciate it.

Anyway, it'll be like that for a few days and then we'll go back to regular summer work.  We'll still be sensitive to heat, of course, but it won't be nearly as bad.
