Hi Jeff; I can identify with the "cold/hot" issue as I grew up in North Dakota-- not too far from Winnepeg. I've not had actual experience with a situation like you describe, but I think the worst problem could be repeated heating and cooling with potential moisture condensation in the equipment, and then freezing and thawing of the moisture-- depending on humidity of course. Some equipment manufacturers recommend their gear be used within certain humidity ranges. The potential for corrosion would also be increased in this scenario (IMO). It seems to me this is especially important with computers. If the components were kept cold for a long period of time and then gradually warmed up, I suspect they would be fine. I didn't think Canada had any swimming pools-- North Dakota doesn't:). Good Luck. Craig.
