Stories of computers in the antarctic, in space etc.
Another 100 F plus degree day here in southern NM. This is typical weather, but it would be nice to hear some stories about using computers in conditions of extreme cold. Do computers in devices on the exterior of the International Space Station have to have heaters in them? Perhaps someone can tell about using a hair dryer to unstick power supply fans or using blowtorches to warm up motherboards - stuff like that.
