Less Canadians in the league and more Dutch? Eh?

ESPN:
Quote:
The two sides have not met since mid-December. On Dec. 9 the players offered a comprehensive proposal that included a 24 percent rollback on all existing salaries and a major revamping of the salary arbitration and entry-level salary structure. The owners countered on Dec. 14 with a salary cap range of $34.6 million to $38.6 million and a re-tooling of the 24 percent salary rollback. Both sides rejected each other's proposal and it appeared until Monday that the season might drift into oblivion without any further contact between them.
The league is hemorrhaging money, but the two sides don't agree that player salaries are the problem.

They're meeting again today.

Locked out? Did the janitor bolt the door?

I still don't get the hemorrhaging thing.

I need to bring in my camera -- the windows have been sealed with ice, and the frost is a quarter inch thick inside.

At work, with the room temp at 25C and a hot radiator just under the sill.

Cold!

I was thinking the same thing. Old single pane windows or a double pane with a broken seal... or maybe its Bell's Palsy.

Maybe a quarter inch of ice is an effective insulator.

I've been thinking too hard today - was thinking about how frost/ice and the amount of air trapped in it would effect its efficiency as an insulator.

Old, poorly sealed single panes in those pull-in steel frames (that never quite close tightly) so popular in older schools and businesses. It was plenty comfy two feet from the window.

Why don't you grab some duct tape and some trash bags and seal the window then? Or get some clear plastic from shipping and use the duct tape, man!

Of course, 1/4 inch thick ice on the window 2 feet from you, must be useful for something. Like scrapping bits of it off and tossing at co-workers. Or scrapping a big pile off and delivering to your boss as a "bonus".
