Hot Enough For Ya?

I work in a room full of computer equipment, all of which generates copious quantities of heat. The windows in this room do not open.

These facts have extreme relevance to me tonight, because the air conditioning system isn't working. It's the middle of the night, in the middle of November, and it's 88 freakin' degrees in here.

Unfortunately, the big ol' computer that it's my job to babysit has its own special cooling system, which is currently managing to keep it a few degrees below its emergency shutoff point, even without the help of the building's main AC. I say "unfortunately," because if the damn thing were actually overheating I could shut it down and go home. Instead, I'm doomed to sit here and swelter.

Sigh. Good thing I didn't wear a long-sleeved shirt today...
