Well. This sucks.

So, our area is in the middle of a two province-wide heat wave. Normally, this would be bad enough, but the humid air seems to be all too much for my rig- it's normally cool interior heats up within 5-10 minutes of gameplay in Fallout 3. So, basically, I can't really use my PC, limiting me to more or less dialup internet usage and TV as far as electronic entertainment goes- Steam on this computer is halfway through an update as far as I know, and none of the non-steam games on it really pique my interest at the moment.
As for going outside and doing something there, well... I was never the sports kind, and besides, it's too damn hot to do anything active anyways.

You sure it's your PC? Not his?

Get a good fan, and place it behind it, that helps my computer.

How hot is it? 30 - 35 celcius? Your lucky you don't live in India. 45 degrees in sunlight at summer.

Yes.
There is.
Yeah, that was suggested to me.
Yeah, about that- very warm for this part of the world.

"I don't believe you. There is no summer in Canada :P"

You are indeed right.

It's hotter then hell down here though, must be a one time thing.

Had us a heat wave recently in the UK. Was damn near unbearable. Had the side off my case and had a 12" standing fan blowing into it.

When it's that hot I tape up all the vents on my PC and attach a water bottle to the top of the case. I then use the steam from the boiling water to run my older steam-powered computer
