From the article:
The coolant used is called EC-120, from Electrocool. Buying the full kit will give you 5 gallons of the stuff (which at retail is around $500). This is a lot more expensive than mineral oil, but still beats the $300/liter cost of the two-phase liquids used in servers.
I have a question for all the people reading this thread:
How many of you live in an area where they have countdown timers by the pedestrian light? I love these, I can see from a whole block away if I have time to make the light or not. If I don't have time, then I can gradually slow to a stop...
Thank you for the additional context. I thought it goes without saying that a person would check the car out prior to breaking glass. If a person is in the car with the dog, clearly there isn't an issue. Breaking the glass as a first step without making noise or rocking the vehicle is plain nuts.
Sorry, but dogs die all the time from being left in hot vehicles. If a passerby notices that it's scorching hot outside and your dog looks like it's unresponsive in the back seat, your the fucktard for leaving it there, and getting a broken window when someone with a brain saves it.
I have cable and skip pretty much all the ads except the funny ones.
All you have to do is record your shows, or just pause live TV for 5 minutes and then skip ahead when a commercial airs.
You can't do that on internet based services which is one of the reasons I don't cut the cord.
A similar story ran on my local news. They suggested things like "knowing when your package is coming so that you can be present during delivery".
Why are they missing the obvious solution: Have it sent to the post office or depot near you so that you can pick it up yourself. It's what I do...
What if the vehicle pumped knock out gas into the interior to induce about 20 minutes of unconsciousness? Or, the car could suck half of the oxygen content out of the vehicle so that the thief gets very tired and can't trash the car.
Crazy idea: The government makes a law requiring credit card companies to phase out the mag stripe and switch to chip and pin. The government provides a 12 month grace period for credit card companies and merchants to sort themselves out. 12 months later everyone is on the same playing field and...
It's strange to hear that this is such a widespread issue. I bought my cable box refurbished from a local electronics store ($100.00), called my provider (Shaw, Alberta Canada) and they activated it. No fees, no hassle, no rentals.
I remember being able to play as the Germans in Battlefield 1942 single player campaign. It was futile though because even if you won all the battles it made no difference on the overall war and you were still fighting in a destroyed Berlin by the end of the game.
I was thoroughly entertained with Star Trek Discovery. I think a bunch of people didn't make it past the first two episodes and they thought that was the show. There were plenty of great moments. For example, the mission where they sneak onto the Klingon ship to defeat it's stealth and then blow...
I just watched an interesting show on history channel. The topic was the German u-boats. Apparently the type 21, which was finished just barely before the end of WWII, was used as the prototype for the first American nuclear submarine. Who knew.
I just tried buying a ticket from ticketmaster and came across this:
First, they try to get you to click the blue button by making you think that it sends you the receipt or ticket. You get the ticket automatically, clicking the blue button just signs you up for their e-mail list.
Victoria Ambrose was stopped at a red light on South Ring Road in Guelph in April when a University of Guelph police officer, beside her in his cruiser, noticed the glow of an electronic device. The officer testified he saw her looking up and down about four times, court heard...
I just came across this product and remembered this thread:
The Antec cooler comes with a connector to plug directly into Asus motherboards for Aura Sync.
I remember the days when the phone would ring and you wouldn't be afraid. People had their numbers openly advertised in the phone book to make it easy for others to reach them. Now it's the opposite, thanks spammers.
The saddest part about nuclear weapons is how permanent the damage is to the planet in comparison to how minor humanities day-to-day dispute are. For example, WWI started after Archduke Franz Ferdinand was assassinated. Does anyone give a shit about that today? No. Would the planet still be...
A $30 fine is embarrassing Florida. Get with the program.
Any jurisdiction that requires the police to prove that someone was texting is doing it wrong. Like others have said, if the device is in your hand while you're driving, the charge is proven. There are hands free devices out there if...
