Re: NFC: Cooler water

I am not sure it will work in anything other than a _very_ low humidity 

In the desert southwest areas where I have visited, they use swamp coolers to 
cool homes until it gets really hot and then turn on the more expensive air 
conditioners.  I've also seen outdoor restaurants where they have misters 
spraying a very fine mist over patrons and it works amazingly well to keep 
you cool without getting you wet. 

I would also be concerned with undesirable bacterial growth for those of us 
in hot and humid environments.

 I'd like to figure out how that could be adapted to cool an aquarium.
 Anyone have any ideas? >>
