Too hot?  It's 70 right now and the high was 75, what are you complaining about?

Thanks subby.  I hadn't heard of a couple of those, they look interesting.

I think I'll try Foldit - there are some good results coming out of game-style distributed research
I've had folding@home running for about 6 years, and I just started using World Community Grid... i dunno about that one, it's a bit clunky

This. The high all week has been around 80. Considering I live in southern New Mexico, where a normal July high is around 104, I've been loving this weather.

I'm really skeptical that you both came into a thread about doing science research through the Internet without knowing how to do basic data-gathering. If that really is the case, though, here's the URL for NOAA for you: http://www.weather.gov/

Oh, I know full well that it is hot in other parts of the country, and there are heat advisories out on the east coast, where all important weather happens. I'm just saying it sucks for them, our weather has been pretty damn nice. I see NYC is going to have a heat index near our normal daily high. Terrible. In the meantime, I don't hear anything about the flash floods and abnormally cold weather that the Chihuahuan desert is experiencing.

In short, I'm just mocking the headline because I live in one of the few areas of the country that is experiencing abnormally cool temps, and I love the shiat out of that fact.

this. I was linked to SETI for a while... always looking for way to contribute

I was born near the equator, it's never too hot to go outside.

// It's 100 degrees outside? Ok, I'll wear shorts instead of jeans.

Where, if you don't mind me asking?

/lived near the equator for 6 years, so I'm always interested
//So many interesting places near the equator

The USVI

Wet heat sucks the prevalent sweaty balls it creates. I was just in Arizona, and went hiking when it was almost 120. Can barely go outside in 95 on the East.

I used to do Seti @ home, but since I work off a laptop it was kinda disruptive. I don't want it to run six out of eight cores at 100% while it's on my lap and I'm just browsing.

/Yes, it's an i7 overkill.

No argument from me there. I grew up in the Midwest, where 95 with humidity to match is pretty common. That sucks way more than 104 but dry. Not that 104 as a dry heat is awesome, but it is tolerable, unlike high heat and high humidity...that just sucks swampy balls.

Not only that, the computing energy required adds to global warming.
