    Dear friends,The old DVTalk campsite served us well since 2001. Over time, however, our one-of a-kind, custom programmed message board has become archaic and cumbersome, and it lacks the standard features of other, more contemporary message boards.

This article goes into a lot of detail explaining why the 1913 record is not right.

There is also a lot of discussion as to whether the 1913 record was accurate. The 136 degree temperature in Libya was discounted a few years back.

The 1913 record was 134, and has not been broken.

The record that was (possibly) broken on Sunday was from 1931:
