I managed to cool down my bedroom without opening up the hatch. According to the thermometer it's less than a degree cooler, but it feels cooler than that. Hopefully I can get a good night sleep.

Google make an air conditioner in less than 15 Minutes. I'm sure you have most parts probably in your store or nearby.

It's basically a styrofoam cooler, fan, duct, tape and ice or frozen bottles of water but it does help.

The key is if you have a window put a fan in it to blow out the hot air. Then use a second fan to make the above or you can just put the frozen bottles of water in front of the second fan have it pointed at you while you sleep.

I grew up without a/c so in the summer I'd take a fitted sheet wet it and stick one end on a box fan. Instant cooling fort. I would sleep in that.

I did the frozen water bottle thing this afternoon. It helped a little bit, but I don't think a tower fan is ideal for it.

I dozed for a while, but woke up feeling overheated. So I switched my fan back on and sprayed myself and my pyjamas with water.

I might end up on the couch in the livingroom, despite the noisy drunks walking past.

Setting up my mother's new Kindle Paperwhite. Hers died, kinda. For a while now it occasionally either hung or spontaneously rebooted. I tried a factory reset and checked if there were any books stuck indexing, but the problem persisted. Last night it went into a reboot loop and eventually gave the message to contact Amazon. She charged the Kindle and this morning it worked again. But she's like me and doesn't want to be without a working Kindle.

So I went out and got her a new one (no I'm going to lend her my spare, within a day it would stink of cigarette smoke). I've just went through the set up and added the books she hasn't read yet, I'm now waiting until all books are indexed.
