Depends on where the jet stream is. If its sitting over the UK, we get shitty, windy, rainy, cold unpredictable weather. Which is what we've had for about the last 10 years.

 

Traditionally (ie. going back 10+ years) we used to get defined winter and summer with proper cold and snow (well, not *proper* snow since the 80's really other than the odd year) and decent hot summers. Which is what we've had this year and it's been fantastic! Quite a few heavy snow falls, country grinding to a halt, proper hot weather. Awesome.

 

Hope this is the start of proper weather again. :D

I see, then. Well, here is to hoping. :)

I'm with Mr Bear on this one :D  Don't mind some warm sunny days but when it starts going above 20C it's just not fun for me.  Can't think and it's a real bind to sit in a hot office (back room) and try to write code all day!  Nice cool wet day gets me some real good dev time :D and time after work for retro dev time :D  (Want to have things to show ready for e-Jagfest this year! :D)

Glad you've been enjoying it tho SainT, if it's your cup-o-tea, fill yer boots :D

Complaining about 20C??  It's been 32C + all summer here.  We think it's a nice day when it's 27-29C.  It's not unusual for it to get over 37C here.  Of course I'm the USA's midwest.  So we tend to get weather extremes.  It's been know to be hotter than Florida here and in the winter colder than some parts of Alaska :P

Yeah, I'm in Utah, and it's been freaking hot this summer, with random violent raining.

You misunderstand.
20C is the cutoff between good and shit.
It's been waaaay over 20 over the past few weeks.

It was showing 36C here today (Croatia), but I'm cooling my stuff in the sea most of the next 10 days, so no worries :)

Got me thinking, that global warming thing is real then? What next? Mortal Kombat on Jag? An SD cart for Jag? :)

SainT: enjoy the summer while you can. The Jaguar is nearly 25 years old, we can wait for the SD cart a bit longer.

I've spent the last three weeks working 7 days a week. That, the heat and the bright sun with clear sky outside (something that rarely happens where I live) makes even a indoors-type guy like me angry to be stuck inside.

It _IS_ 25 years old.  The latest Retro Gamer mag has a 2 page blurb.  And that makes me feel old.  But so does everything else now.  :)

 

Ok... Fine, November '93.  Technicality...

I've actually been alright the last month or two, which is the longest spell of feeling alright I've had in a long time. :)
....


As I said, first and foremost take care of yourself and enjoy this break, I wish it would last a very long time.

Talk to you in the winter months and with a little bit of luck your improved health is here to stay.
[ever though that maybe the bad weather has something to do with the way you feel, not that it causes it but it may be aggravating the situation .... I think you should take an extended vacation at Gibraltar (barring the pollutants that is)]

Damn straight, seen up to 31C here (hottest day), but it's been hovering around the 26-27C area fairly consistently. I ain't built for this weather! The biggest problem is that our houses aren't. They're brick, small and really well insulated for our usual weather. Which turns them into little ovens during hot days. Because we're used to a couple of weeks of summer normally we might have a couple of fans kicking around and just put up with it. The only place we have A/C is in cars...

Plus complaining about the weather is a national pastime.

I'm in Minnesota, we had a massive snowstorm in April this year. Can go from 80 degrees to 40 degrees, back to 80 degrees in a few days in the spring and the fall.

Hey, Pink! Same here! I live about forty miles from Saint Paul. It's true, too. The fluctuations in temperature can be extreme. Wait until the Alberta Clipper and Siberian Express come in the winter time. You know that those weather patterns bring bitter cold. I remember that April snowstorm, too. How could I forget? Fifty-eight hours long, full of snow! Non-stop! It gets crazy here in winter. :)

Sounds like a good time to stay indoors and play on an Atari.

I had traveled to Liberia in Africa for 3-4 weeks back in March with my buddy who is originally from there, and when I was returning home I was excited because I thought it would be warm-ish weather outside and the cold weather and snow were finally done for the season. And lo and behold like a week or two after I get back home we have a massive snowstorm. Oh how I was wrong.

 

On the other hand, the weather in Liberia wasn't bad at all, usually like 70-80 degrees on average and it actually cooled down nicely at night. Wasn't any worse then Minnesota in the summer, I was expecting way hotter. Although I did go in March, if we would of went in June or July or something, i'm sure it would of been much hotter.

 

(PM me if you want to know more about my trip to Liberia, I love to tell people about it and what it's like experiencing an extremely poor, third world country from someone who has spent his whole life in the USA. It really makes you appreciate and be thankful for everything that we have and take for granted like running water, paved roads, electricity, etc.)

There was barely even electricity in most of the residential "homes" My friend's place we stayed at, they had a generator that runs on regular gasoline and gas was well over $4 US dollars a gallon. They only ran it when it got dark outside and you couldn't see. And I will say this, my friend's parents were fairly "well off" compared to the average person there and that was a huge, expensive luxury that generator they own that the average folk there would never be able to afford. And it wasn't very stable, there was constantly short little power surges lasting from a  second to a couple minutes, which would make playing a video game or watching TV or a DVD/Blu-Ray just about impossible.

 

Their wall outlets were a combination of the US and Europe style outlets, meaning you could plug either a US electronic or European electronic device into them, which was pretty neat. We went into a small little electronic store in downtown Monrovia, they just had a combination of random electronics imported from both Europe and the USA. I saw a cheapy Philips dvd player that would cost you like $20-30 in the USA, they had it priced at $90. The stuff they had was astronomically expensive, which i'm sure is because of how expensive it is to import stuff there.

 

I can say this, in an extremely poor third world country like Liberia, everything you take for granted in a place like the USA, a lot of the people just simply don't have these things, or they're quite scarce and/or expensive.
