Temperature today peaked at almost 105 degrees F (41 degrees C) in Manhattan, which was a wee bit higher than we're used to.

Some of our Sun boxen recorded internal temps of over 120 degrees F/50 degrees C. Boxes were automatically shutting themselves down to prevent permanent damage. Things are not good.

I think they're getting back under control now, but I can guarantee you there's going to be hell to pay for this. Sigh.
