At the height of our summer we reach 26 ║C (sometimes we hit over 30 ║C but not very often). Time for me to move to Spain.

Last year we had 75,3 millions of tourists and this year we expect many more.

What is it with programmers and the weather? Is it 'I'm sat in here, but wish i was outside', or is it - it's a rich source of programming experimentation, forecasting/whatever. I'm not sure if I'm right, but I think it was in the book 'The soul of a new machine', which a read back in 1982ish, that one of the techies made a model of a virtual world, with a model of the weather system. Daily folk would ask what the weather was doing, and I think he published a daily weather forecast around the offices. If it was not in that book, it was in one about 'fuzzy logic', come to think of it, that was more likely. I can't find either book to confirm.

Another irrelevant fact, but most programmers  I know, over a certain age, smoke roll-up cigarettes - it gave them a short displacement activity between bouts of concentration.
