what does the 'v' in 'hvac' stand for? // work update

I get that the 'h' is probably 'Heating', and the 'ac' are 'Air Conditioning'.. but what's the v?
Heating Versus Air Conditioning : this time it's personal.
Heating, Vulgarity & Air Conditioning : You'll fucking like the shit we do.
Heating, Venusians & Air Conditioning : our product is out of this world.

Or am I wrong about the 'h', 'a' and 'c' in the first place?

Either way, I finally figured out (actually, figured this out about a month ago) how to controll the heat/cold in my office. The thermostat on the wall is just a decoy cleverly meant to distract from the true controlls. I am now certain that it doesn't do anything. The vents that blow treated air into my office are set to 'hot' or 'cold' at the central plant, and I have only one small measure of controll I can excersize over them. I have a switch on the far wall with which I can turn them on or off.

Yup, we're so high-tech here that our heating and air conditioning controlls have *two* whole settings! "On Full" or "Off". Best I can figure is that the system was struck by massive budget cuts half-way through the process, as the thermostat is stuck to the wall, but the only controll we have is a switch on a seperate wall that just turns the vents on or off. I suppose they saved a whopping $5 per room by not running the controll wires to the thermostat and instead just stopped at a slightly closer wall to install a manual switch. Oh well, at least I have some controll.

    Okay, so not quite a year. More like 10.5 months since last update. At first, I thought that I should write about the whole lazor-eye thing right…

    I suppose I should make a mention of this. Round about this time tomorrow, I’ll be getting shot at by lasers. It sounds so sci-fi saying it that…

    I suppose a more complete review of the decade will needs be done at some point (including the question of if 'the decade' is in fact over) but one…
