Currently if you walk in a southerly direction from near Helpdesk down towards the QZ, you’ll notice quite a striking temperature gradient.
At the end of last week, Estates identified a problem with the coolant in one of the aircon units. They drained the refrigerant from that part of the system and have been pressure testing it with oxygen-free nitrogen over the weekend.
We were hoping that it would be refilled with refrigerant this morning, but we’re guessing they got waylaid; we haven’t heard back yet. We’re hopeful that it will soon be back to normal, though. In the meantime, moving to the cool end of the lab might be a great reason to use the Linux machines… (we didn’t plan this, we promise!).
