I'm a big fan of swamp coolers. Cheap, effective, and (mostly) out of the way. I don't have a dedicated brewing/fermenting space in the house, so my normal mode of ferm temp control is by way of a swamp cooler. I can keep the water to a constant 68-70 even without ice. Apparently my cooler is well insulated. I do have a ferm chamber under construction but there's no telling when I'll be able to finish the project.

New Yorkers think they’re so jaded that it’s impossible to shock them. They think they’ve seen and heard it all, and that may be mostly true. But I can tell you from experience that, at 2am in Midtown, pretty much every person on the street will stop and gawk when they see a guy holding hands with one midget, and another midget on his shoulders yelling out: “WHO RUN BARTERTOWN? I RUN BARTERTOWN!”
