Completely Random Smurf with Aleph
« on: May 14, 2016, 05:18:44 PM »
Hey fellow MTOers, in this thread I will post some random thoughts about things that may or may not include:

 - Tools
 - Cycling
 - Computers
 - Heavy Metal
 - Books
 - Movies
 - TV
 - Vaping
 - Something completely different
 - 42

Stay tuned.

Fact of the day: There are exactly 187,888 lakes (larger than 500 m²) and 179,584 islands within the territory of Finland. Both are world records.

I got so annoyed about the noise my computer's processor fan was making, so I decided to get a new cooler. Of course I had to go way over the top so I got this:



Scythe Mugen Max, 720 grams of metal + 140mm fan... I mean if it's worth doing, it's worth overdoing, right?

Found out that sometimes bigger is NOT better (or at least easier)! :facepalm:

Took me better part of two hours to install it, because having shovels for hands is not actually helpful when putting big metal things inside your computer case...

Anyways,  the comp is quite silent now, so I guess it's a victory.

On a completely unrelated note...

Any of you follow the Giro d'Italia? I'm a big cycling freak myself, and after the Classics, Giro has always been real start of the season for me.

This time I'm glad seeing that my favorite Andre Greipel is doing really well, two stage victories already :)

Another fact of the day: This year marks the 97th Giro d'Italia

I had the same problem a decade or so ago, so I installed this jet turbine thing from Cooler Master.  It looked kind of like this:



The fan was ducted so that it sucked air in both ends and exhausted it through the heat sink.  Or the other way around, I don't recall.

I was going to head out with my camera today, but the weather has been total smurf today...  :rant:

Hopefully I have a chance at the first part of my vacation in two weeks :)

So, I'm a bit of a history geek (especially ancient Rome and Greece), and today I just got thinking...
If you count all the years from the founding of Rome in 753BC to the fall of Byzantine Empire (East Rome) in 1453AD it gives us 2206 years.

That is a mind blowing number, I mean, the Roman Nation (in form of Kingdom, Republic, Empire and Byzantium) lasted over two millennia. Puts our own time in quite a different perpective, don't you think?

As I just started two weeks of vacation I took the bike for a short spin today, and decided to bring the camera with...

This tower sits on the roadside close by, although I haven't got the faintest idea of it's function:


Riding along the rails:


Revisit the old trainyard :):


Closer look at the building at the trainyard:


To my surprise someone had parked this beautiful old "Lättähattu" (meaning "Flat Hat") passenger train here:
(more info on the train here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VR_Class_Dm7)


Some old rail cars:


And lastly this old fantastic orange post car  :D:


It was really short spin around, I hope the weather stays nice so I can do this more :D

Fact of the day: For every human on earth there is 1.6 million ants... however, the weight of those ants is about the same as the humans.

Another completely unrelated fact: Models of current Valtra tractors are A, N, T and S.

This fairly irrelevant piece of information brought to you by "Completely Random Smurf with Aleph"

PS. How do I know the Valtra tractors thing? I work there :D

As of a side note, there used to be a street performer in the city I lived in before, who did this absolutely amazing version of Hotel California, and I (usually when absolutely off my face) used to stop by and listen to his stuff and tipped him few euros.

Have you ever thought you were born a rocker and a metalhead? I sure do...

At the age of five I first heard Twisted Sister: We're Not Gonna Take It and I absolutely loved it:


At the age of eight, I heard Dire Straits: Walk of Life and I absolutely loved it:


:D

Mail day!  :mail:  :ahhh  :drool:  :D

Mailman dropped me a package today, and in that package...

...was this, CRKT Folding Razel:


It has nice sturdy blade:


Quite good sized folder (Blade 8.5cm and overall length 20cm):


The liner lock seems sturdy and works well. Also showing the pocket clip which allows nice deep pocket carry:


Top view showing the LAWKS safety lock lever:


I have been :drool: after this knife for a while now (everyone know I'm a sucker for quirky tools ;)) so when I found it on eBay for 30 euros /w postage, I immediatelly pulled the trigger. Haven't had chance to use it much yet, but I'm sure it will deliver without problems.
