Reference please. I can't find any evidence that he himself ever called it anything but 'grader'[^] (degrees). The first names for thermometers using the Celsius scale and method was 'Celsius Novum','Ekström' and 'Strömer'.[^] Celsius Novum rather then Celsius while the scale was inverted compared to what Celsius himself used.
People say nothing is impossible, but I do nothing every day.
My b-i-l in Adelaide told us it was 45 degC a couple of weeks back. He said their garden plants are completely fried. I don't envy his commute to work. He drives an old wreck of a Mazda (I suppose new ones aren't much better?) and it takes him 30-40 mins to reach the practice where he works. It's bloody cold here at the moment (and snowing) so I'd happily give you my -2 degC in exchange for 25degC of yours.

"I controlled my laughter and simple said "No,I am very busy,so I can't write any code for you". The moment they heard this all the smiling face turned into a sad looking face and one of them farted. So I had to leave the place as soon as possible." - Mr.Prakash One Fine Saturday. 24/04/2004
You rat! it is snowing heavily here, I am sitting at work, left the house at 07:28 didn't get through the door here until 10:10 walked several miles, am damp and thinking about running (or sliding home!) the UK is better prepared this time but still unprepared, how do Norway and other snowy country's do it?
