Out of the Blue

Well we finally accomplished the long-running project of acquiring a new air conditioner for my office in the rather hot attic penthouse of the BlueTower. I say acquired, because installing it is a different matter altogether. We were so excited to find an appropriate unit we failed to notice its oddball plug... this is a 240V device. We decided to view this as an opportunity, rather than a problem, since the load of computer equipment up here has always had a tendency to overwhelm the available power... a couple of UPSs are in place to prevent disasters, but I'm good for several tripped circuits a year. So we had the electricians back here today to run a 240V line, as well as a new dedicated 120V line for all the computers. This all seems pretty elaborate, but the electrical work is only going to cost us about as much as the AC unit itself did, and being able to isolate the computers and the AC from each other and the rest of the house offers a priceless degree of reassurance that things are finally wired up as they should be.
