Do you live in a fridge??
I think my point here is, if you design electronic devices, just don't let your bosses convince you to omit that necessary protection diode, to save one cent. Or to under-specify the device ratings. It might make money in the short term, but in the longer term you lose consumer confidence. And that doesn't help anyone.
Melbourne? Electric blanket? Do you live in a fridge??
Well, we are heading for autumn. Tonight it is 11.6 C. That's 52.9 F.Not exactly snow on the ground, we never get that, but cool. Besides, do you think it is OK to sell electric blankets that forget the time, forget the set temperature, as long as they are sold in Melbourne?
Anything < 30 degrees C and I'm reaching for my thermal undies.
Anything above 17C outside and I'm considering removing clothing
Guess it's largely relative though.
I've never been in temperatures greater than about 24C - does not appeal at all.
Mind you, I've been to the UK. The buildings are built for warmth, not for getting rid of it.
