I joined this Forum at around August/September of 2017, curious about the Internet and "Chat Forums" in general. (Now I certainly know a lot more about them. Thank You to all upon here.)I joined just after Summer, when the Weather was cooling. And so my Old devices were able to work as well as myself about this business.(We are all "Old"/"Outdated".)Now the Hot Weather is coming back, which *is* quite alright. Yet never so much for myself, and for my Devices, which are my only methods of continuing upon this Forum.(Yes, We overheat quickly, and cannot cool off. No, We cannot simply all of the time "Use a Fan". Fans themselves get Hot, too.)...In short - This Thread is a Warning, or is asking if anyone else has such troubles - during Hot Weather: Once it is over 80° Fahrenheit, then all I and my Devices can do is worry much, and then sit and do nothing... except wait for for a little past the Summer Solstice...

Hi DC, I'm thinking what overheats so much it stops working?
Greetings, Thank You for Posting here (and to NAS24456 so far late.)...
Regarding that which I quote... I did not say that we (myself & machines) *stop* working, but that we have much trouble and give many errors...
I was also mostly referring to myself - I cannot tolerate that heat (Allergies, illnesses, etc.)--- yet this:
For those younger ones of us, 80F is 26C.
...I like this! I myself do require a certain temperature range and cannot cope - in the city (pollution) - outside of it for long... I must rest, unless I can cool off. I freely admit to anyone that I have chronic illnesses and am weak and slow and all of that... and this Thread was begun in anticipation of all of that...
Fair Play to Yourself, of course...!
I don't personally have issue with heat or cold really, but actually suffer more with humidity. I've been in 40C with 100% humidity and that was the most physically uncomfortable I've ever been, where as I've been in 44C but with zero humidity and and it wasn't uncomfortable at all so there are a range of factors at play.
I've found from experience that even high twenties at 100% humidity is far less comfortable than even ten degrees hotter but with low humidity. Then again that's my personal preference, I'm sure others will be different.
Greetings, all who may read. I am reposting here because it is now MAY 2018, and there has been a taste of the kind of "Hot Weather" at which I hinted...
...REAL Hot Weather is not until Mid-June, all of July, and then the start of August, however (over85°F)...
Now that I am upon a Public Firum, there is one thing I have wanted to ask Public People about Hot Weather, however. And it is this...
During hot weather - especially in London (awful) - I think it can finally be seen exactly who is RICH and who is not...? The poor (currently including myself) must wear light clothing, or very little. Yet the very Rich people, perhaps with Air-Conditioners and a Low-Carb Diet... they are still in their 3-Piece Suits or are covered up, and they are never sweating at all. It is just another day to them...
I was basically wondering if I was alone in noticing this or not...?
Glad to see your still on here DC, and with record temperatures for the bank holiday just passed. So glad your outdated equipment is still chugging along.
I do notice the cars that sit in the heat with all the windows done up,,they have air conditioning I imagine, my old car is supposed to have it but it never has worked, I once was a passenger in a car with air con and it was ok until we arrived and got out,,the heat hit me so bad I nearly fell over, the sudden change from icy cold to very hot sun was not good.
I regulate my temperature by mindset, I reason I am hot and slow my metabolism down to suit, always have, I thought everyone did this? I would still be wearing a jumper when all were in t shirts.
I must admit I wore my tweed jacket and waist coat complete with flat cap Saturday but on Sunday I decided to leave it off, only the jacket though. I am not in any way posh, although when I dress in my suits I look posh. Never judge a book by its cover eh!
Anyway glad your still here, x()x
Food for thought, for myself there, Sir - Thank You for this. Now I (sort of) know...! :-)
Just to add my friend my clothes are from charity shops and a jacke can be bought for as little as £1:40. Or £10, real tweed and not at all worn or scruffy ;), x()x
It is really the Hot Weather now! And so I write and try this...
I have wanted to post this little thing for a while, concerning hot weather, and so as it is currently so, here goes. (Guess which one is myself, and which is not...!) :
"The weather is lovely and warm, isn't it?""My asthma is worse during hot weather due to the pollution.""But it is so lovely and hot, isn't it?""The media reports that some people are dying due to it being so hot.""Yes, but it is beautiful hot weather, isn't it?""There is no rain. Fields and crops are being scorched, and animals and people are dying. Heatwaves are being reported as far as East Asia, now.""Well, that's too bad for them, but this sunshine is so lovely isn't it?""The media only acknowledges Pollution when it gets this hot. Usually they just find a way to blame 'Nature' as always for any problems. Such as so-called "Super Pollen", where Pollution combines with Pollen, and then Radiation bakes it into a toxic mixture. But I am not allergic to Pollen at all, only to Pollution.""Sorry to hear that. But this weather is so lovely anyway! EVERYONE is loving the Sunshine! Sunshine is so wonderful!""My skin feels like it is on fire. And my Eczema turns into painful "Heat Rashes", and all I can do is be itching, in pain, or out of breath.""..Wait... Oh no... it is turning really cold. I don't like this! Where did the Lovely Sunshine go? Quick close all the windows! I must get my umbrella out! The Summer is over...!!""...Excuse me, but That is just one little cloud passing over. The Sun shall come out again in a second. Yes, see that there...?""...Oooooh yeah! Thank Goodness that horrible bit of rain went away - now it is lovely Sunshine and Hot Weather again! Isn't it beautiful?""..."
...End of Post (Rant)!
So hot now Ill soon have to leave my vest and wooly jumper off.
And it takes a !ot to separare me from my jumper!
Lmao, that's a pretty funny summary! Yep, there are people like that but I think it's even getting to some of the most hardcore sun-lovers!
I feel your pain DC! I don't deal with heat very well myself. I sort of lose the parameters of my body, I'm covered in bruises from banging off things. Sleep is impossible. It was really windy here today but even if you took the deepest breath it was like breathing in soup. My mom summed it up best "This is horrible son. It's like being inside a ******* tumble dryer".
*** this summer.
