    You guys think, you've got it bad http://patient.info/health/physical-urticarias-hives

    Once my body starts to heat up, it starts itching badly, even walking can cause the temperate to rise, which causes the same thing, thankfully the medication keeps it mild and only for a short period.

  7. I do not mind dry heat (i.e. when I visited Las Vegas), but when you have close to 100% humidity it makes the outside close to unbearable. As we know, when there is high humidity sweat does not evaporate as easily, but rather pools on the skin. This reduces the efficiency of our body to cool itself off :nerd:.

    Although, autumn is my favorite time of year, cool, but still warm 21 - 22 degrees celsius (70F).

    It was pretty good for a few days, better than the last couple of weeks :p 23c+ isn't something I personally enjoy, especially when gaming. Though the new 1070 does make a difference (got it today) when compared to the 980 Ti using something like 250w-300w.

    It's been a consistent 35C(95F) here for that past few months, crazy to think in a few months it's going to be back in the negatives.. No A/C, haven't figured out the window configuration for our evap cooler. i can get the upper level decent, but the lower level gets hot. Makes me miss my apartment, but having a house is worth it..

    I prefer that it never top 20C/68F. On the other end I'm more then happy with -18C/0F. :p

    Not directing this at anyone in particular, but at us as a specie
    We've become a bunch of pussies. Summer is supposed to be hot.


    As much as heat is uncomfortable, I revel in it. I love it.
    Same as every other kind of physical exhaustion, I feel it makes me stronger.
    Think of heat as an exercise. For your heart, for your entire body, for your spirit.

    Theres this thing about heat, cpus dont like it, nor do gpus...or even ram...or HDDs.

    Hell, theres a reason a certain someone used ovens during WW2.


    *Ive been drinking, please dont ban me for that. I have a dark sense of humor that means well, but means to offend.

    Cold is too. So... it still comes down to personal preferences. :)

    There's this study of HDD endurance, I can't link it right now. But the conclusion is clear:

    Low working temps (bellow ~28C or sumtin) are much worse for HDD endurance than say 45C.
    And it makes sense. Temp deltas, gradients and condensation should intuitivly be far worse than high temp.

    I bet that hot and dry is much better than humid mild temperate.

    not to mention that those black curtains are just great when it comes to heat absorption, and subsequent heat radiation

    ie. they're real bad :D
    aluminium foil on outside windows is good

    I say the same about people that can't take cold weather. ;)

    Personally hot and dry is ok, I can handle desert living, it's the humidity that kills me (asthma).
