My internet was out for about five minutes. As soon as it comes back on, I get an email telling me there’s a service outage in my area. *shrug*
I get email on my phone - I run IMAP, so it is a duplicate of the inbox on my home PC - and the phone service-provider uses a different network to my terrestrial ISP. So for me, it makes sense.

I also manage remote networks, so it is quite useful to get an email from the local (to the remote equipment) ISP telling me of an outage. While my own end-to-end monitoring will tell me of the lack of end-to-end connectivity, it's nice when the ISP owns up to the outage being their 'fault' so I don't have to start fault-finding the whole end-to-end service.

So we know that 0°C = 32°F

So if we use Celsius math: 0°C + 0°C = 0°C
If we use Fahrenheit math: 32°F+32°F = 64°F ( or is it: 32°F+32°F = 32°F ? )
Thus: 0°C = 64°F

conclusion: Fahrenheit math is weird.

But you also cant calculate whit Celsius like you would do whit Metric Numbers: Temperature is also Energie, or the movement of the Atoms, if i remember correctly, so when you put 2 Cans of 20 °C Warm Water together, they want have 40 °C .. so 2 x 0 ° Kelvin are still 0° Kelvin..
