H2 has low density, low viscosity, and the highest specific heat and thermal conductivity, it also reaches lower temps than water. These make it a great coolant for many things, better than water in certain cases.

But because water has such a high mass it has a higher transfer rate. So water wins under those conditions.
>>
I visited the US one time and their tap water tastes so much like chlorine, it's like you're drinking straight from a swimming pool. They put the same shit on your table at restaurants. It's nasty enough to ruin your meal if you drink it by accident. So yeah, I think a filter is probably a good investment if it makes the water taste like water.
>>
>>71600331
And oh yeah, I forgot, they use the same swimming pool water for the coke dispensers, so even soda tastes like fucking chlorine. I can't fathom how Coca-Cola allows that shit to be sold with their name attached to it.
>>
>>71600232
this is gas though isnt it? i mean liquid
>>
>>71600492
Yes that is for a gas, and liquid will do much better. But it will never reach the density needed to beat water in this case, because the oxygen will always make it denser.

Now I would be interested to see where Helium is in this mix, I suspect it is mainly used for the lowest temps and not so much transfer speed. But not finding good comparisons for them.

The only good answer in this thread. I’ve got an older coworker with a note four, his is shutting down at 30 to 40% for this reason. On the other hand, he can just buy a new battery.

Is Ubiquiti a brand to consider or it's all just mass scale shilling? Been looking at upgrading my access points, and online it's nothing but recommending Ubiquiti APs nonstop. However looking at the specs I really don't see much that makes them stand out from TPLink EAPs or Cisco Merakis for instance.
1 reply omitted. Click here to view.
>>
>>71599986
They do the job well enough and are kinda cheap plus you don't have to pay for the management console like other brands.
>>
>>71600037
Which one are you using? I'm currently debating between the Unifi AC Pro and the TPLink EAP245. From what I'm finding, the Ubiquiti controller is older, and so more feature rich, but the 245's hardware is slightly superior. Also the TPLink is a few €s cheaper.
I'm already somewhat seasoned on networking, and don't need an idiot proof management, but if the Unifi controller is as good as they say, I might consider still going with it, although it seems it would lock me to a full Ubiquiti environment.
>>
>>71599986
I've been installing and selling Ubiquity products for over 5 years now. It's not the best, but like someone said, it get's the job done with a free controller. Simply can't beat that. It's good enough. I also like the "smartness" of the controller.

I just checked our controller and we're currently managing 180 sites. Not products, sites.

they are rock solid stable once configured
but unifi controller is retarded java crap

I don't know, the ball mouse I use at my parent's house is PRETTY old and much better than my other mice. The mechanically-driven rollers are much more reliable than you remember; you just have to clean them.

kys. The keyboardfag is a cancer that defaces complete classic systems to appease their degenerate urges - going so far as to even want old terminal keyboards and shit utterly incompatible with modern systems.

Buy your new manufactured mechanical kb in fruit colors and leave old systems intact you faggot.
>>
>>71597175
Not always, cumstained 1980s keyboards are objectively lacking in functionality compared to newer products you can buy. So why are you hoarding old garbage that at best is just duplicating functionality?

At least retrocomputing autists can play with different platforms and paradigms and learn things along the way trying to make them useful again. Keyboard cucks are just bugmen that want to look fashionable but are too stupid to actually use the tech, so they just glue the mostly compatible peripherals to their facebook toys and take pictures of them instead.

can i have my time back? he didn't have any interesting insight. he had a call for a bsd security group, which i think is smart. he pointed out that many security features have a lifespan, and he talked about how we can no longer keep believing we trust the hardware. He seems to be from a freebsd background, but admits openbsd's security is good ( i think he's naiive because it would seem that US intelligence have gotten to openBSD just as well as everything else). Seems like his main concern is making money off FreeBSD and he sees that it can be done by being the "secure" IoT OS. I think people should go for it, why not? But I didn't really gain anything from him talking, and I feel kinda bad for him because it seems like his audience wasn't a good fit for his presentation.

its not enabled on any distribution i've ever used.

yeah, and I've never seen someone use that kernel as a web server. apparently it's possible, but as far as I know, most people use software running on top of the kernel to serve web pages.
