Is it metal? Cause I have metal sandisks that do that.

Plastic, I think. I'll have to dig it out from whatever junk drawer I left it in. Haven't used in a few years.

The whole surface should have been a passive heat sink.

Bought one of those "portable" A/C units off Amazon.  I have the smallest & hottest bedroom in the house to start with, and the fact that I have so many electronics in here means it heats up even more quickly.  The combination of boredom from not being able to play my games as long or at all, plus the shitty sleep I've been getting whenever somebody tells the thermostat to stop blowing A/C has been causing me a surprising amount of anxiety lately, so I might as well invest in the solution.

I wanted an actual window unit, but we have a very restrictive HOA here that doesn't allow them, or at least not for windows located in the front of the house, which is where this room's only window happens to be.

I actually hate having that stuff in a bedroom, although I get that some people would have no privacy to do their stuff otherwise.

What kind of nonsense, knockoff HOA has buildings without central air? Making rules about portable (probably louder than the window unit you'd have gotten, also taking up floor space) vs window installation, lmao.

We have central A/C in this house, it's just easily overpowered in this tiny room.  I was doing some brief research on the legality of it and found out that apparently lots of HOAs in newer housing developments(where central A/C can more reasonably be expected) ban window units.  I kind of get it because they can be considered to be unsightly and they can be hazardous if they fall inside or outside of the window, but I think you're also right: Everything I've seen indicates that floor units are pretty noisy, and I'm not thrilled at all about giving up even more floor space just to be comfortable in my own room when I wouldn't otherwise have had to.

It's not the most arbitrary rule I've read about but it's still annoying to hear restrictions on something like that. What if a home's AC goes out and the region's all out of floor units. Don't want your neighbors to see a tiny, 2 foot wide metal box on the upper floor of a house that people should really have no business snooping on. Better suffer instead.

Rather breakdance on thumbtacks than live under those petty tyrants. Why can't more HOAs have a simpler set of rules. Don't fill your yard with garbage. There, done.

I sold my car and bought a hybrid a few weeks ago. Now I can drive without paying £12.50 a day, thanks Boris.

Nice. My friend has one of those but it just sits in the parking structure at his apartment. Fun to ride in, anyway

The Camry hybrid is great value, because literally no-one wants a Camry.

Explain

I narrowed down my choices to either this, a Taycan (but the waiting list was too long) or just forget the whole hybrid/electric thing and get a V12 Aston (maybe DBS). The Aston would have been the most fun but there were some quite attractive tax incentives to go for something with low CO2
