I think the problem with your A/C unit is the location. It appears to be located in an unbearable hell-hole :-)

Yeah, but on the other hand.

Come Oct/Nov....I'll be wearing shorts outside for Thanksgiving and enjoying the weather while much of the US is indoors freezing their asses off already...so, like anything, I guess it is a trade off.

We really have to put some newspaper under you, for moments when you overflow like this. To drop the current egregious example, the Iran deal Congressional shortcutting, and taking the sell-out straight to the Untied Nations is not even "kinda" conservative. In a rational time (and this sure as balls ain't) this particular stunt would be more impeachy than simply peachy.

Furthermore your constant state of goalpost-moving - particularly the fact that you are able to support your team in part but anyone of any other team must support their team 110% of the time - is again noted.

Is that like when you try to typecast #OccupyResoluteDesk to "conservative", or do you have some other meaning in mind?

The ISO for Home and Pro are the same. If you have a key (a Win 10 key! A Win 7 or 8.n key won't do!), it will install the right edition without asking. If you skip key entry it will give you the choice as what to install. So, no, you can't accidentally grab a Pro ISO and try to install it on a Home version, because the Pro and the Home ISO are one and the same. Only the key makes the difference.

That sounds to me like you have a badly undersized unit. Its also possible that something isn't working right

No, I just had it checked, is a good system, etc.

It is just THAT fucking hot down here, and humid. A lot of the AC time on is to dry the air out in the house.

I like to keep the temp about 74F during the day time I"m here, and about 72F at night to sleep. That's comfy to me.

But it gets HOT here at the end of April usually, and we don't even start to get breaks in the heat and humidity till about mid Oct I think....

1) They built houses that were passively cooled

2) Linen. Try it.

Well, I've been in a LOT of #1 type houses here (they still have 100's of year old homes here, and it still ain't cool enough.

And even wearing linen...single layers are still too hot, much less the many layers they seemed to have worn then.

I"m just guessing they were a LOT tougher than we are now.
