The whole problem hinged on that simple fact.

A friend of mine only found out he had early stage prostate cancer because of a routine test, as he lives mostly in France, rather than the UK. It's a routine test there. Back here I have to ask, repeatedly for a reluctantly given PSA test. All clear, but my father died of it and I don't want to.

Title should be Toaster-oven sized, which means an oven the size of a toaster. Toaster oven-sized means a toaster the size of an oven. Now, not sure about you guys, but in the UK ovens a bigger than toasters and the title gives a misleading impression about the size of the toast. Maybe it's a USA UK thing because we all know everything is bigger in the US. Except for gallons, miles, shoe sizes...
I can't beat 19 years but the games in the Crystal Maze in Pembrokeshire ran for 15 years on 386's with 4MB of RAM and 40MB HDD's. I spent 5 years coaxing then into life every morning. The non-booting ones mostly needed to be left on, warming up for a while, then rebooted again. At the end getting HDDs that those 386's would recognise was getting to be a real problem and when I could get one it was expensive compared to the current GB drives. The OS was MSDOS 5.2.
There were 20 in total. So 20 x 15 = 300 years, no?
UK Temperatures are very much influenced by the Atlantic Conveyor or "gulf stream" are not in any way indicative of global temperatures. Melting Arctic ice is fresh water and influences the conveyor and may possibly slow it down so leading to cooling in the UK. We are of a similar latitude to Newfoundland and I've heard it get pretty cold there. Without a north Atlantic Ocean, warmed by the conveyor, keeping us warm we'd be freezing our cojones off in the winter with much cooler summers. These are local effects, do not confuse weather with climate.

Melting Arctic ice influences the conveyor and may possibly slow it down so leading to cooling in the UK. These local effect are entirely expected. The UK will get wetter and colder if the conveyer slows or stops. We are the same latitude as Newfoundland, I've heard it gets pretty cold there too.
