I worked in the cellar

Ambient went up to 28C

The most crucial bit of kit - and INTEL 8088 ICE stopped working.

It was full of ECL and Schottky TTL and timing was critical.

We asked for cooling. Refused.

Then I read te manual

"Equipment operation not guaranteed above 27°C ambient"

Showed it to boss, who grabbed it and raced upstairs...

Aircon arrived the next week.
