"Pirating" meaning "watching TV". Or recording it.
We used to call it a VCR. We could record anything we wanted. And we weren't "pirates", a term that used to mean SELLING copyrighted content, usually in physical form. Which is still done at dealer tables in conventions all over the US, and no one is trying to take those people to prison.
I could repeat my points of the last, oh, sixteen years warning of definition drift and the removal of the right to record something happening on a screen in front of you. But, the liars won and now watching and recording TV is illegal unless the "owners" control your TV and, well, everything else connected to it. Encrypted BIOSes, HDCP, all the crap that has taken over what once was just watching TV and turned it into a worldwide ubercrime, a Prohibition III nightmare that is never going to end.
Oh, what a dream that would be!
The temperature fluctuates here, iirc, between 72 and 75. 2 cubes over, registered 72.9 when mine registered 74.9. Air flow and the closed vent are major players here.
Well, two ladies came by in response to the request, at least one of which looked like she was dressed for dinner. I ignored them when they first walked by until they specifically asked for my attention. I had no idea that was normal business attire and really didn't think they were there for me.
Like awakening from a dream...
Heh. Nice find.
Then there was that time under NT that i tried organizing the system directory. Well, it was kind of okay until the next reboot. Not being able to boot is a great teacher too.
I almost never reboot Windows at the office. It takes too long, requires turning off all the stuff the IT department uses to ruin my day, and wastes time getting things setup just right. Instead, i just hibernate, and bear the few minutes it takes to get back to normal. (Hmm.. very winteresting.)
I'd far rather have a/c though!
Let's trade! We always want what we don't have, eh?
In your case, though, you can provide you're own A/C, as you have a window, put in a window fan, or a double window fan that can blow air both in and out. (I used to have one of those and was really happy. It may not be perfect, but you have some recourse. Enjoy what you have.
I wish we had windows. Lucky dog.
She has a space heater. She uses it during the winter.
The funny part is, she thinks rationally (half-way techie even) when she wants to. The even funnier part is, she's from the Ukraine.
I have a fan. If i showed up in shorts i would likely be reprimanded for not wearing business casual.
Luckily, i have headphone to hide what i listen to, so no red stapler is required.
I really dislike the summer in the office. It gets warmer outside so the women start wearing less clothes. Then they complain the office is too cold. Really?! My water consumption went up this week, and i''ve been buying caffeinated drinks just to stay awake.
