Okay, so we're in double wide trailers while our building gets remodeled. It's -6 degrees outside. I got here this morning and the freaking heat isn't working.

We learned that plugging in two space heaters will trip the breaker, so I'm trying to heat my office (shared with one other person) with one little space heater.

So far, 4 other trailer dwellers have gone in search of open conference rooms to work in. I'm holding out hope that the heat will be fixed very soon and sticking it out at my desk.

It's a balmy 51 degrees in here right now.

I'm so glad it's Friday.

Hand and foot warmers

by CharlieSpencer In reply to TGIF

You can get them at sporting goods, hunting, and fishing stores. You add a little water and they generate heat via a harmless chemical process. They're a couple of bucks each and small enough to fit in your shoes. Place them on the sides of the keyboard. Try to find some at lunch, since it won't get any warmer next week.

Love my climate controlled computer room.

It's not even

51 degrees in here any more.

The space heater is keeping me kinda warm.

You make some good suggestions, but that would mean that I would have to go outside. I'm not willing to do that.

I might just have to suck it up and go next door to the 'warm' trailer. Of course, that means spending my day with the tech support brats. Which means I will be warm but chances are likely that I'll get hit in the head with a nerf arrow.

One other feature of the hand / feet warmers

They come in pairs. They can be tucked into any garment that contains body parts that come in pairs, if you know what I mean.

Geez, must you drag every innocent comment into the gutter?

I clearly meant they could be put in earmuffs.

If your employer can't provide an environmentally acceptable workplace, they should give you the day off with pay.

Could be worse, you could have a flood in your server room and lose 18 servers over the weekend. Oh no, wait, that was us... never mind, I wouldn't wish that on anyone.
