    30+ is getting hot... i'm not saying it's intolerably hot..

    but keep in mind humidity and actual temperature plays a huge roll in what is hot feeling...

    a dry heat is alot more tolerable then a humid heat.

    anything over 40*C+ becomes hazardous to most everyone. I drink a pile of fluids, i've done many thing in the +45*C range... but generally it's not wise for anything outside.

    -60*C is damn cold, but i can still easily survive it provided the correct clothing is present.



    btw... the +40 temperature here are rare... usually we get no more then 2-7 days of that per summer...

    course one year we did have roughly 2 months of average 37*C temperatures.... that was a tough summer... everything died.

    LOL :D:D:D:w00t::w00t::D:D:D

    Why is it referred to the sub-continent when it's in a continent? What is a sub-continent? (I've often wondered that)

    Definitely a dry heat is much more pleasant than high humidity. When I was in North Africa the temperatures were mostly in excess of 40c but it didn't feel too bad as humidity was low. The worst part was having to walk around with betwen 2-4 litres of water in your backpack all the time. Gotta keep drinkin' man, gotta keep drinkin'

    I just spent about the last 3 hours trying to work out what had happened to my internet connection. Turns out my router (which costs £90 and is only about 5 months old) had failed. Back to using a router that's about 5 years old but works. Doesn't have a phone though. Rang 'em up for RMA and they said they'll have a courier pick up my router Wednesday and will deliver replacement at the same time. Pretty efficient and good customer services :):):)

    Just looked up FiOS and it says you can get a max of 50 Mbps. Is that true? What do you expect to get where you are?

    AFAIK, FiOS has 3 packages:

    15Mbps, 30Mbps, and 50Mbps

    residential customers typically opt for the 15Mbps option, w00t~!

    i'll be posting before and after connection speeds :D
