    Howdy yall


    As the days get warmer, I find myself once again looking at ways to cool the house more passively than the AC.  There has got to be a way to use a 100w solar panel, a Peltier plate, and heatsink fans on a wall or window passthru to move heat out of the house.


    I should try running the computer outside in the hot air, to test how well the cpu can keep <65c when it has to use 30-40c air to cool with.  I dont want to give up on using water cooling for the computer with the radiator outside.  Heck, I could put the Peltier on that and chill the water as it goes back into the house... just need to have it release that coolness before it gets to the computer to avoid condensation

    Hello! I think I saw you in the RT Radio chat briefly on Thursday, right?

    Anyway, as a newbie I suggest you follow the dotted line down this corridor with the 'atmospheric' lighting and make yourself comfortable in the chair. Don't worry about the random deep howling noises, it's just Fred next door.

    Meanwhile we will prepare the blades.

    I'm sure the analytics skills will help at some point in the future, so it might not be a complete waste of time.

    How do you take your coffee?


    Today's special is the Shadow Stack on the Rocks. Three different dark roast shots percolated in Oregon coast rain water and served over large ice chunks.

    Welcome to the best forum around. We've got real conversations, sub-forums, and we can argue while still being friends.

    I think that's the best description for the OCC. "Where you can argue and still be friends".

    If you can't argue with your friends, you're not doing it right.

    As someone who had 7 semesters of art history, I really like this gif.


    Anyone have any unique Easter plans?

    I plan on locking myself in on Monday morning to avoid the beat stick tradition.

    Seriously don't understand why it's still a thing.

    Dinner with the grandparents is about the extent of my plans for Easter.  

    "The beat stick tradition" this is the same one where guys go around switching girls right, or is this another tradition where people beat each other with sticks?  Because I remember you mentioning it before and yeah that's an odd one to me, especially when all the holidays in the US, that I'm familiar with, involve giving free candy to kids.

    Yup, still the same one. 

    Guys, gather your stick of braided twigs and smack all the ladies round the block while reciting some song-thing and then girls, make sure you give them a shot of your best alcohol after because how else are they supposed to fuel their whipping sprees?? Underage? Oh well, just give him some chocolates at least.


    MmEz_f-maxage-0.gif


    This year interestingly enough I had two professors ask whether there were any people not following the tradition anymore so it looks like not everyone likes it.

    If it weren't for the smacking, it would be cool. Like have people go around and wave a stick over our heads or whatever and recite the little song, that'd even be kinda adorable.


    Wikipedia says that it's supposed to give girls good luck and have guys show interest in them. Also says it's not supposed to harm girls, but I know guys will whip girls good.


    There's another part of the tradition I've heard that's even worse, but I don't see it described anywhere online and no one does that part anymore, so there's that at least.


    Hope you guys have a nice Easter dinner!

    I would love this. 

    But I know I would also be a little jealous of the guys because I'd want to do the pew pewing too :P But using racket skills to send them flying back at their faces? I'll take that challenge.
