Thanks for sharing video. Just an observation....

Is it positioned for optimal air flow? Wouldn't rotating by 90 degrees increase airflow by expelling warm air through the rear case exhaust (Noctuas work like this)? Perhaps there's a limitation on mounting as per manufacturers installation instructions or perhaps I missed something.

Hi David. Not asking too much and I feel your surprise. I have a degree in EE way back when in 1988. Started in EE as an enthusiast as a teenager and could do circuit layout and soldering by age 14. No great feat, I was just fired up and eager to learn.

Perhaps what might have changed over the years in not necessarily competency in basic EE skills but in the levels of enthusiasm and passion to learn?

Your vacancy is a fantastic opportunity. The right person will come along. Hang in there:-)

Great! All too often we see online demos showing biz logic / data access being placed in the app tier (e.g. MVC4). Frequently find myself screaming at these demos "MVC is a presentation architecture and NOT a scalable solution architecture!". 

Nice to see you showing similar;)

I wonder if there's more mileage in this experiment? How about the heat exhausted outside being pumped into some kind of energy reclamation system instead?

Alternatively, use a thermocouple array in a heat exchanger configuration to power low amperage devices such as charging phones, tablets etc.

Not a simple or inexpensive thing to do but would be interesting. There must be a few kW hours that can be recycled?

Thinking like a girl - boys would build before design and never bother about instructions !

Obvious a lot of spirit went into creating this app and video. Thanks. The tech world is a better place. Microsoft's loss is our gain. Keep it up and look forward to the next video.

Much to everyone's disappointment, OAuth 2.0 is not an authentication protocol. Instead it is a protocol designed for requesting access tokens and passing them along to a third-party application, i...

Innovation starts with inspiration
Introduction
Hi! Thanks for checking out my homepage. I've been doing technology, engineering and computing all of my life (and that's a relatively long time;) ).

At age 3, my favorite toys were Meccano and Lego and I developed a passion for designing and making things.

Several decades on, and I still still love making things. The only difference these days is that I make software rather than physical things. Making software is a bit like Lego - plugging together blocks to make something useful!

In amongst all of the technical bits that take up most of my waking hours, I am blessed have a wonderful, supportive wife and daughter without whom I would be lost.
