ya, the thermostat was set at 15 degrees, the kitchen was cooking, the kitchen window was open, the computer is in the 'dining room' next to the kitchen with no real dividing wall, and I wasn't cold. All that made the 7C reading very iffy looking. I know software readings aren't the most accurate, but it was far off enough from what i expected that it feels like a bug.
