Daleks, robots or opening windows?

daleksThe Australian standard for office environments is 20°C to 26°C. But it did not seem to apply to the Australian Public Service!

Shortly before my colleagues and were due to move to a new building, the air-conditioning on our floor of the old and dying building collapsed completely. It was beyond economical repair. The temperature was way over 30°!

So in came these machines to the rescue. They were noisy and it was still hot and humid.

Were they Daleks, or the robot from Lost inSpace?

It certainly does not compute. Hasn’t any one heard of windows that open? Now there’s a way to save a few billion on air cooling.
