Thanx! And Thanx for the offer!
Right now I'm good until Sept. When the 3 months ran out...I managed to ride free for a bit, and then exceeded the bandwidth again. But this time they offered me a yr for $25....so I went for it. I simply have too many posts, in too many places, over too much time to be fiddling with it much. I have a website...hence, ability to host my own pictures, but trying to relink all of the pix in all of the threads, etc, etc, etc....just not worth it.
Just wanted to say a few things:
1) This is definitely the way to go for 24/7/365 stability and convenience.
Winter is coming to a close and spring temp variance will be arriving shortly. So, I will be going to pushing that single button probably twice a day for a few months.
Been thinking about adding either another ranco controller or an AC thermostat to turn this indoor chiller on/off via the temp in this room....that would automate the spring/fall situation.
2) I've barely run my main heater this yr....Yes, as cold as it's been. I ran it for ~10 days in Jan when we had a stretch where the days were in the 20s and the nights in the teens. Then recently for just a few days while temps were in the same range. If ya factor in the "productivity" of my PCs, hobby value, etc....this has more then paid for itself. Note: I spend most of my time in this room, so the focus is heating this room to my comfort zone. The door stays wide open. The temp in this room is normally ~80F and in the rest of the place....it's probably around 68F to low 70's.
3) I've been tossing some project ideas around in my head. Not sure what, or If, I'm going to pursue anything atm. I seriously doubt I will pursue a farm-sized chill box....just way too inconvenient when anything hardware related is required. Maybe a chillbox for 1 or 2 rigs just to check it out, but I seriously doubt I'll do anything for 4 or all 5 rigs. Contemplating converting my ghetto chiller into a dual plateHX chiller. That would free up a 5K btu condenser for a single-unit indoor/outdoor window mountable chiller I've been thinking about. But by converting my ghetto chiller into a dual plateHX....I would be able to cool the condensing side via my car rads, Bongs, HVC or any combo. Considering that I now have the tools and supplies, it wouldn't be that expensive to pursue these things.....just a lot of work. Which I guess is the point of a "project", huh?
But, atm, I'm feeling quite lazy, burnt out, distracted....and enjoying this current setup! Edited by Naja002 - 2/8/10 at 1:38pm
