better that than the 110F you were getting in your current summer.

and we like our liquid nitrogen. lotsa fun to play with. ever have a 
marshmallow quick frozen in it? i had one at the pittsburgh science 
museum at one of the first 2 yapc's (went with a small group of 
perlers). the marshmallow was crunchy! it wasn't too cold as the demo 
person let them warm up a touch. you chewed on it and it melted and 
stayed crunchy, a most interesting and very memorable experience.

uri, who is looking forward to this spring after a very cold winter
