Fuck! Overheat.
    #2906762 - 07/19/04 11:27 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

So my friend came home from work, and checked the thermometer on his incubator. 89, not right, but not too bad. Then he checked the max and min settings for the day. Max was ... 107.4?!?! Shit! Fuck! Shitfuck!

I'm hoping that that was just a brief temperature spike, but now I'm really worried that my friend's grow is toast. Anyone know of any signs that he should look for that the myc actually is dead?

This pisses me off. My friend as a tub-in-tub with a thermostatically-controlled heater in it. That shouldn't've happened.

...But then, checking the lows on my thermometer, it's saying that it got to 56.6 degrees at some point since midnight last night outside of the box, and up to 98.8 at some point. That doesn't make much sense either -- according to a weather website, the max and min for the day was 80 and 69. I could see it getting up to 90 in his house, but I can't see it getting below 69, since he doesn't have AC.

I'm really, really hoping that it was just some weird glitch with his cheap-ass digital thermometer/hygrometer.

All of my posts are full of fiction and blatant lies.

Sounds likle the problem is the thermometer.

All creatures tremble when faced with violence. All creatures fear death, all love life. If we can only see ourselves in others, then how could we possibly hurt another creature?
