It continues to be cold as Nifleheim in my office. The airconditioning continues to blow, and our interim solution of sealing the airconditioning vent shut with bubblewrap and duct tape (also good for protecting me against terrorism) is beginning to disintegrate. Yesterday afternoon a very official looking facillities kind of guy cam and stared at the thermostat then he pulled out a cell phone and called somebody. "Yes, it is very cold. Yes, it says its about 60. Well its turned up to 85. OK." Then he hung up and left. So basically, I am to assume that building management has verified that the problem exists. Good job guys.
Oh, how I yearn for the intelligence and work ethic of CMU Facillities Mgmt.
