    Crazy cooler prototype - NO pump!

    Kung Fury (YT) mentions 3M also has its Fluorinert line of liquids, and there are other companies that have two-phase liquids for this application: Engineered Fluids and Cargille-Labs
  2. Guess the liquid! Hints: It's not 3M Novec 7100 Engineered Fluid. According to Roman, he wants something with a different boiling point, for more headroom when overclocking. Also, according to Ben Tec (YT) Novec can't be sold to consumers. Since he can't sell a Novec-filled product to people, he found a different fluid.

    Anyone got a Robotic Vacuum hoover?

    I use the Roomba 980 to clean the low-pile carpet of my office. It's totally worth the money if you: Are willing to clean large objects off the floor and prepare it for vacuuming by moving furniture and stuff so that the robot doesn't get stuck. Wires won't work with it. (Our office prepares by closing the doors to rooms with problem surfaces, such as book-sized objects on the floor, wires, tubes, the bathroom... Buying extra light barriers made this easier.) Have mostly low-pile carpet across a single level of the building (it can handle all surfaces but it works most efficiently on stiff, low-pile carpet) Don't have a butt-ton of pet hair or similar stuff on the floor Have the money for it On the stiff, low-pile office carpet, this thing cleans better than a commercial Oreck XL. No joke, it pulled out all the dust that the Oreck has been missing for the past three years. The path-finding is pretty good, since it has a camera on board for tracking where it is and where it needs to go, so it's not ping-ponging off furniture like the last-gen stuff. It's pretty darn good at getting itself back to base, assuming it already knows the layout of your floor and it hasn't trapped itself. Emptying the bin is pretty simple, so long as you're fine with a little dust on your hands. It's not totally sealed like higher-end vacuum bags, but it's easy to deal with, since the bin is pretty small and has a large opening after you pop the cap on it. It's more pleasant than emptying a Dyson canister, which in my experience always has a dust bunny all the way at the top of the canister, where I can't fit my hand. Downsides? This thing is really loud. It cleans almost as well as a normal vacuum while sounding almost as loud as a normal vacuum. I also wish Roomba made the battery user-replaceable, since the high duty cycle of this model will make for a short-lived battery, but that's just speculation on my part. Lastly, like all roombas, the actual vacuum part of the roomba is surrounded by about an inch of wheel and plastic on each side. There's a spinny brush thing that will brush along the baseboards (and wear away with time so it needs to be replaced) but it does jack all. So the last inch around your walls aren't really being vacuumed. These are pretty darn small gripes, but then again, you're paying a premium for that. It was easy to justify this purchase for an office, as it allows the staff to do less cleaning, and time is money, but I doubt you would justify the price for home use, unless the layout of your home is uber roomba-friendly.

    Prison For Making "Counterfeit" Windows Restore Disks

    I would love to hear John chime in on this in the WAN show, because there's gotta be some legal insanity going on here.

In 2011, Lundgren ordered $80,000 worth of re-printed Windows recovery disks from China. These were intercepted by US Customs and Border protection. It is reported that these are restore disks, which do not come with a product key or license and cannot be used to activate Windows. Therefore, these disks should be nearly worthless, as an installation/restore disk can be made free of cost with a utility provided by Microsoft. However, as many forum members have noted, it is against Microsoft's terms of use to redistribute this software. Note that currently being reported is that a US appeals court upheld a district judge's ruling. This is an appeal, not the original conviction or sentencing. Qyotes: My favorite:

    I love how people are taking this waaaay too seriously probably would have been funnier if Linus treated this as no big deal though
  8. I don't believe linus (or even any community manager i.e. luke or nick) reads through every comment on YT and the forums. There's no way... But if you're at LTT and you're reading this, tell Linus that he's crazy. That's some dedication. I don't think any thumbnails that they've made are really "clickbait." But I do think that a clean, nice-looking thumbnail can work wonders. I'm a helluva lot more likely to click on an MKBHD video than an LTT video on the same topic. Why do you think he keeps his thumbnails clean cut? How about: Whenever Brandon does a lot of the B-roll for a video, let him make the thumbnail. Get a pretty, clean, standout thumbnail for glamour thumbnails, and have fun with the thumbnails on everything else.

    Call for Coders 2017

    Honestly, if you want a platform that doesn't have the core problem that YT does, think open-source. You are talking about Floatplane like it's a platform for more than just you guys. If so, you should seriously consider making this project open-source.

    I'm just talking about sheer annoyance factor. If every video on the channel had that face on it...

    They made a joke. It's okay to make jokes. It's unprofessional to mislead your viewers. These are fans of LTT. Don't just dismiss them all as sensitive babies if they have legit criticism or feedback. They're disappointed with the quality of the content and with the annoying thumbnails. Besides, I'd be pretty annoyed if every thumbnail looked like this

    The video did not contain actual Ryzen 3s or 5s. I don't know why you are arguing that the title isn't misleading.

    The thumbnail is totally fine. I don't think they have any clickbait thumbnails. There's not a single thumbnail that makes me more likely to click it just because it's goofy. Hell, I'd probably be less likely to click a video of luke fingering this case if it wasn't released during CES.

    At what point does criticism become whining? They mislead viewers into thinking they had something when they didn't. The title. THE TITLE. WE'RE TALKING ABOUT THE TITLE.
