    Computer Fan

    Yes exactly. Give it just a quick burst once or twice in the spot where you can see cooling fins. Running the compressed air in there too long may damage the fan though so go easy on it. Make sure it’s off, the compressed air spins the fan backwards, that can’t be good.

    Computer Fan

    I’ve seen situations where a clot of dust and pet hair on the inboard side of the cooling fins (between the fan and the fins) can cause the fan to run constantly. In a pinch I’ve blown compressed air into the cooling fins (from the outside) to break it up (computer off and just for a second, it...

    youth fall baseball coaching approach

    We have 2 one hour practices a week (due to conflicts with other sports), most kids make it to one, the high achievers come to both, we play games against neighboring towns on Saturdays. Practice only will be better for development but kids want full on competition once in a while. It's the...

    NFL officiating

    The NFL will release the following: "Inflation details from each cold weather NFL game have been recorded for the 2015 season. The readings have been reviewed and prove conclusively that Tom Brady and the Dorito Dinks conspired etc etc etc". The data will not be released, no one (outside of NE)...

    #DFG: Canceling the Noise

    Agreed there shouldn't really be any differential or variability. It would still be interesting to see variability or lack thereof due to the process, variability of the NIST gauges, chain of custody of the balls and such. IotG!

    #DFG: Canceling the Noise

    I hope going forward the officials "gauge" each ball before each game. Maybe again at the half and before OT if need be. Top them up etc as needed. The Tostitos Halftime Ball Squeeze" would get crazy ratings no? After all of this shitshow they have to continue to show that this is a huge...

    BbtL/Patriots Nation Super Bowl Roll Call

    Essex VT with wife and kid, no guests. Like PaulinMyrtle I can't whoop it up when it's the Pats. Numb inside.

    #DFG: Canceling the Noise

      It would be an interesting social science experiment for a major media outlet to serve up the same or a similar story in two versions, one leaving the story as is and one simply replacing 'Seattle Seahawks' with 'New England Patriots' and replacing 'Michael Bennett' with 'Chandler Jones'. ...

    #DFG: Canceling the Noise

    For the Idiocracy crowd facing us daily: Find your car's owners manual, look up "Tires - Inflation".  Read the blurb that states unequivocally to check tire pressure only when the tires are cold  (mine has lots of juicy details with numbers and such, yeah).  If the blurb makes sense, great...
