It appears that the air conditioning at GCSF World Headquarters is finally fixed! Our part of the world has seen triple-digit (Fahrenheit) temperatures 18 times in the past month, and now we’re extremely optimistic that the pump can keep our studio cooler than 20°F below outside temperature. We’ve been doing our best amid other concerns (like prepping for WWDC), but trust us, “sweating over every word” is far better interpreted metaphorically than with actual moisture.

(And trust us, you haven’t lived until you have to interrupt a conference call to drain the results of massive dehumidifying from a heat pump with a turkey baster, and repeat it every 4 hours for several days.)

Our thanks to everyone for their patience, which undoubtedly exceeded ours. There should be a big publishing surge in the rest of the week.
