Facebook Server Farm Near Arctic Circle To Use Natural Cooling [telegraph.co.uk]
The enormous server farm facility in Luleň, northern Sweden, to be announced officially on Thursday morning, is the first time that the social networking giant has chosen to locate a server farm outside the US.

"The climate will allow them to just use only air for cooling the servers," said Mats Engman, chief executive of the Aurorum Science Park, which is leading the push to turn the city into a 'Node Pole', luring in other international computing giants.

So Facebook will be contributing to the global warming of the Poles? ;)

putting server farms in places that have notoriously bad weather has 'bad idea' written all over it but I won't pass judgment until the hit fits the shan. ;)

Air cooling, fine. What are they going to use to warm the servers? Those things have a lower tolerance too, y'know.

The only time I ever saw the classic black-screen Angry Mac (not to be confused with the ordinary Sad Mac) was when I moved from central New York to Boston in midwinter and did not let the computer sit long enough before turning it on. Brrr, was that scary.
