I work in a cubical in a large office, which means I have very little (actually no) control over the temperature at work. That means in the winter I often have to bring fingerless gloves with me so I can type at my desk without my hands going numb (we aren't allowed to have space heaters anymore; I guess they are a fire hazard!). In the summer, of course, it is sometimes far too warm, especially when the chiller on the air conditioner breaks down, which seems to happen just about every year. Luckily, I have the Holmes HACP9 Clip-on Fan to keep me cool when I need it. Most of the time, I keep it in a desk drawer so it doesn't clutter up my workspace. But whenever I need it, I can pull it out and attach it to a drawer or other surface and direct the airflow to keep myself cool. Really, the Holmes HACP9 Clip-on Fan is a pretty normal fan, but it does the job -- it has variable speeds, itsn't too noisy, and is unobtrusive.
