  • A fan that sprays water in an office full of computers.
    What could possibly go wrong?
  • Windows Central is really digging hard for articles these days... I don't blame you guys though. Microsoft isn't exactly making it easy. No new apps to talk about anymore and no new builds for mobile at the moment.
  • what a ridiculous comment
  • How so?
  • All offices have air-conditioning, so I don't find keeping cool to be an issue. The main problem is keeping warm in an office with a lot of fatties who want the temperature 2-3 C lower than normal. Anything below 23-24 C in the office and I'm reaching for my jacket when it's 35-40 C outside. It's the middle of Winter here anyway, so I'd want ways to keep warm... it's a bitterly cold 18 C outside, so I've got 2 jumpers on and the heater blasting next to me.
