The manufacturer of sweet condenser microphones. How do you pronounce it? You DON'T say "Rode" (like "Road" or "Boat). Rather, the correct pronunciation is more like "Rudd," with a Scandinavian accent.
The Røde NT-2A is quite possibly the best Large-Diaphragm condenser under Five Hundred Dollars.
Central air conditioning, commonly referred to as central air (U.S.) or air-con (UK), is an air conditioning system that uses ducts to distribute cooled and/or dehumidified air to more than one room, or uses pipes to distribute chilled water to heat exchangers in more than one room, and which is not plugged into a standard electrical outlet.
With a typical split system, the condenser and compressor are located in an outdoor unit; the evaporator is mounted in the air handler unit. With a package system, all components are located in a single outdoor unit that may be located on the ground or roof.
Central air conditioning performs like a regular air conditioner but has several added benefits:
When the air handling unit turns on, room air is drawn in from various parts of the building through return-air ducts. This air is pulled through a filter where airborne particles such as dust and lint are removed. Sophisticated filters may remove microscopic pollutants as well. The filtered air is routed to air supply ductwork that carries it back to rooms. Whenever the air conditioner is running, this cycle repeats continually.
Because the condenser unit (with its fan and the compressor) is located outside the home, it offers a lower level of indoor noise than a free-standing air conditioning unit.
Most new homes being built in the United States today have central air.
It must be ninety degrees outside, can you turn on the central air?
(Noun.) An interfooler is a device commonly fitted behind the front bumper or grille of a vehicle to closely resemble an actual front-mount air to air intercooler found on most modified turbocharged and some supercharged vehicles. It causes enthusiasts to think that a car is turbocharged, but it really is not. (a.k.a. Baller on a budget.)
Is that an intercooler? No...it's a "front mount air intake system". Interfooler!
"Why did you strip the paint off your A/C condenser?"
"I did it because it looks like an intercooler now..."
If you see a car at a car show with a front mount intercooler, but the owner refuses to pop the hood, it's probably not really boosting.
Celebrated January 15th
Traditionally, studio equipment is lovingly exchanged between band members.
Another way to celebrate this holiday is by making a phone call.
Keith: Happy Valesio Day!!
Cathy: wow!!! a new condenser mic and a digital mixer!!!!
|5.||Grossman Short Path Distillation|
An apparatus used in the chemistry lab to distill small quatities of distillate. Identical to a short path distillation with the addition of latex tubing (carrying cold water) wraped around the bend in the vacuum adapter to aid in condensation of the vapors. Used in lieu of a simple distillation where distillate would be lost on the surface of the condenser. Also used due to convenience and ease of set-up. Can be called GSPD or GSP Distillation for short.
Should I use a simple distillation?
No, the Grossman Short Path Distillation is the way to go!
A disease (not unlike leprosy) in which the genitalia of a man shines like a glistening ocean immediately before it falls off.
John: Dude, that chick totally gave me the shine.
Robert: Wow, man. I only have The Jack
See Heat Pump and Defrost Cycle. A winter phenomenon produced by a heat pump, for which conditions have to be just right. If you actually catch a heat pump giving a steam show and have a video camera handy, it makes for one hell of a YouTube video.more...
Many heat pumps have interval defrost and will have a defrost cycle every 30, 60, or 90 minutes whether they need to or not, even if they are NOT frozen or iced over. The ones with more modern demand defrost will oly defrost on an as-needed basis, basically when there is ice/frost buildup on the coils. The best conditions for a steam show are when it is below 40 degrees, and a heat pump will freeze up much faster when it is wet, rainy, or snowy. However, a heat pump is capable of producing a good steam show on a nice, sunny day with no precipitation. The best steam shows typically occur below 37 degrees regardless of weather conditions.
How much steam a heat pump produces depends on the outside temperature, how much ice/frost/snow has built up on the outdoor coils, and the heat pump itself. To someone not familiar with a heat pump, a steam show can be misleading, and calls to the fire department in the winter by people claiming their heat pump is on fire are not out of the ordinary. Some stubborn customers also wind up spending hundreds of dollars on unnecessary service calls only to find out their heat pump is doing exactly what it is su...
