  1. Well the weekend is going to be shit weather wise, my new Motherboard
    doesnt want to power up and I am 200km away from the distributor
    so................

    A little cruise on the net to see whats neat out there in geeko land.

    I purchased a stirling engine kit from Thinkgeek recently
    ( http://thinkgeek.com ) and was really impressed with the service
    ordered on the Thursday night, arrive at my door on the Tuesday morning.

    Anyway, love stirlings and it is neat to see NZ is developing products
    http://www.mech.canterbury.ac.nz/research/stirlingcycle.shtml
    http://www.elec.canterbury.ac.nz/documents/gaynor/stirling.shtml
    based on the Stirling but these people have taken it a step further

    Must have been. Working now.

    Ok, so it saves a few watts in electricity, but how quiet is it? I can
    imagine it sounding like a miniature steam engine, chug chug chug :)

    Name one nice thing about Windows? It doesn't just crash, it displays a
    dialog box and lets you press 'OK' first.

    It's a nice gimmick, but electric motors are already silent. It's the
    shaft bearings, fan and air movement which makes all the noise, and the
    MSI fan adds some gears to that mix. I also notice the version they show
    is only being used to cool a support chip, not the CPU i.e. a chip which
    probably wouldn't have its own fan anyway.

    I still would like one to play with of course :eek:)

    No, surely it is your connection which is giving problems. Yes
