So for our Vancouver heatwave (I noted 39C away from the water today, in the shade!), it's finally claimed some of my computer hardware. Most annoying, the battery backup unit (BBU) in the newer fileserver, and 1.5 of the disks of the RAID1 array in the old server...

My website and personal email will be offline for a day or two while I ensure my backups are up to date, and redeploy to the newer fileserver (after I buy a new BBU tomorrow).

ouch! Sorry to hear about the hardware failures.

My basement server is suffering some from the humidity, I think. It's gone into periodic-spontaneous-shutdown mode, although as long as I keep the dehumidifier running it seems to be mostly ok. We really need to replace that power supply, but there's never enough time...

Yeah, I've been working my butt off in this heat wave. At least it has cooled off now (Friday) back to normal warm. I'm an air conditioner/refrigeration mechanic. Lots of a/c's overheating & failing.

I take it you must live in a non air conditioned apartment since they are the usually the worst for heat buildup during summer. If you need some advice/help on options/keeping your new hardware cool, pm me on f.g.o

It's surprising that even in Canada you get to have heatwaves that are that strong. I thought the weather is colder in Canada compared with Europe. You'd better get an air conditioner, it's a little investment that can save your pc but also your health. I got mine from frigidaire parts (, it keeps me away from the extreme temperatures.
