they installed all-new HVAC systems throughout our whole building.. something's been buggy with them though because over the course of one hour they'll sway from too cold to too hot and back to too cold..

Dammit, why did you mods ban my "Jesus Christ" name? I could have answered his first post in character.

It's always either very hot or freezing in my building. Damned 70's era concrete blocks.

Yes, it was a double ironing. It was ironing that he thought my mistake was ironing when actually it was intentional. Two ironings should nullify themselves, but in this case it didn't. It somehow left us with one ironing. And then it became a confuse face duel leading to an alien face.

And now.

WE have an office that's so hot that they're starting to fry computers. I have a user's laptop on my desk right now that couldn't find it's own hard drive yesterday afternoon when their office was a brisk 86 degrees F. This morning it started fine. I can't work on anything there except in the AM, but even then they've usually got the heater up to about 80. Kills me.

Don't ever let 'em see you sweat, my ass.

That's terrible. Who is the laptop manufacturer, and if you know - who is the HD manufacturer? I'd like to stay away from them if possible. A computer should have no problems running in a room that is 86F. That drive is most certainly toast now though. Once heat does that to a drive, the damage is done. I'm surprised it sees it again, but it will more than likely have spinup issues in the future.

Dell laptop, IBM HD. I doubt that the heat's really the issue, I'm actually guessing a PEBCAK problem (user prolly dropped it and won't tell me, imagine that). But if I can convince them that it's jacked because they keep it so hot in that office and that the heat will do the same to the machines we have in there that still work, maybe they'll keep it just below the sauna setting. I literally can't go in there and stay for more than about 10 minutes.

Ahhh. Smart thinking.

I know what you mean though. There is very little that I hate more than trying to work in an office that is too hot. Work+Hot = Oil+Water.

The only thing that's worse, and I hate to stereotype here, but I had to do some work in an office where the AC was busted in the middle of the summer in Phoenix where there were a bunch of people fresh from India working in there. Talk about stank.

My old boss was so cheap he didn't get a separate A/C for the server room til it fried a few servers. Before that he just kept the whole office cold, which doesn't even make sense because that costs money too, helloooooo. He always was trying to be cheap and it almost always bit him in the ass and cost him more than if he paid the money up front.

And he sent me on some consulting job for weeks were I was stuck in an intentionally air conditioned server room in the middle of January.

They keep it cold so you get sick more often and use the time given to you instead of building it all up. Then when you have an aneurysm you dont have any time off to use and they dont have to pay you!

That's the way of THE MAN!

The thermostat in there was set at 79. 79!!! Holy ****. I turned it to 74 and I can hear them bitching now. It'll be set to 85 inside the hour. (85's the highest I've seen it.)

It's warming up here in the afternoons (not PHX warm, around 70 or so) and the high altitude sun's been beaming, so it gets good and hot in our buildings.

In an unrelated but humorous note, my boss asked me last week if shutting the server down over the weekend would save much on our electric bill. "No, but keeping it under 100 in the Education office sure as hell would!". Wish I'd actually have said that...

Not the server, but if you have CRTs, making sure they all go to sleep is good. You can tell him that you have already made sure that is going on.

At my old office, for a while we had our equipment in it's own room and the thermostat for the AC was in that room. The receptionist would get cold and TURN ON THE FRIGGIN HEATER. One day she turned the heat on and left it on over the weekend. I got a page on a Saturday that a couple of drives were taking on errors. I went in and found that the server room was real close to about 115 degrees. At that point I ripped the cover of the thermostat off the wall and threw it across the office. After that I manually set the temperature at 74 and she could no longer set it without the front cover and the dial.

But, no matter how much I stressed that it was most important to keep that room cool and that she'd just have to wear a sweater, noone else seemed to find any problems with her cranking up the heat until it destroyed a couple of drives.
