    Refrigerator Case - electronic cooling

    ya, sounded like that to me too. (talking about vortex tubes now) it's really impressive (at least to me) that they can separate hot and cold air just by blowing it into a tube. though you might not like the idea of a high pressure high velocity hot air stream being randomly blown into...

    ya. multiple words in an 80 character char array. i need to break em up by spaces into individual words, to store in a vector of strings. (that way, i can flip em around and type em back out real easy... not very practical, but it's what the prompt asks for..)

    Difference between 8mb & 2mb cache?

    it's quite noticable in general. i went from a 120 gig 2mb cache, to a 160 gig 8 mb cache. for the same amount of data, the AV scan time went from 40 minutes to 12 minutes.
