Heck on Earth


It's intolerably hot in our studio. The air conditioning at Theatresource has traditionally been overly powerful, even so; we in the back studio have always fought the heat in summer with exhaust fans.

But now the AC is much weaker. Which is better than it was a few weeks ago when it didn't work at all.

So we're going to extraordinary efforts to do something about the temperature. Like for instance I bought a thermometer. Now when I say "It's 90 degrees in here" I can show that I really mean it's 90 degrees in here.

It's melty hot. Now, Maduka will actually wear a jacket when it's 90 degrees out (or in). But Blair and I can't stand it. But what I'm really worried about are the computers and the hard drives.

In the doorway you can just barely see the fan I've hung as an exhaust fan. With the AC on maybe we can make the temperature go below 80 in there.

Yes, hard drives will go kablooey in the heat. #1 cause of HD failure.

Not to scare you or anything.

tell them to clean the filter.

Apparently somebody came in to repair it two weeks ago. It could, of course, just be more of the same malarky...

I feel for you. Is it at least a dry heat?
