Summer in the Northwest has been late in coming. Well, yesterday it decided to make up for lost time, and instead of the temps in the 60's and 70's that have been persisting for weeks and weeks, (Along with a lot of overcast and rain) it has gotten REALLY hot.
Seriously, I had the day off from work today, and I'm wishing I didn't. Northwest homes typically don't have air conditioning because you rarely need it, but today the indoor temperature got up to 89°. It got so hot that my PC started overheating and BSODing randomly. (This didn't help while I was already struggling with the incompatibilities between Firefox 3.6.6 and Flash 10.1. (More on that below). I had to take off the side panel and set up a house fan to blow into the box. That seems to be working. 58-60° C is good. 68°C = random crash.
As for Firefox vs Flash. I tried the hints on the Firefox website WRT changing the timeout on their new plug-in container. No luck. I downgraded Flash to 9.0. No dice. I downgraded Firefox to 3.6.3 (The one before they added the container) and it worked. Now I've re-upgraded flash, and it's still okay, so far. So in spite of all the forums saying otherwise, I think it's a FireFox problem.
But such things are hard to diagnose when your machine if blowing up on you from the insane heat.
It's after 7:00 and the temp inside is still 86°F, but the cpu is happily idling away at 56°C.
