  1. You're making this way too complicated. How expensive and durable is your radiator? Just wire the fan to come on at the same time as the pump, if you're worried about how much current the fan draws versus how much you you have available for the pump, use a a relay. Don't worry about the few btus of residual heat you'll have in the heater core, unless it's an old cast iron monster, it won't keep much heat after the furnace and pump shut off.
  2. I realize it was a typo on the part of Zero. However there are CO2 detectors. I can get you the brand once I'm back to work. Were using them in schools (yes for covid!) because CO2 is an indicator gas* of how much fresh air there is in the space. They're about the size of an iphone 3gs and twice as thick, wait... as a pack of american cigarettes. *I'm sure there's another term for this, but it refers to indoor air quality. I should also mention that my work is using them in old as fuck schools with little to no mechanical ventilation. Depending on PPM levels: it's either OK, Open window(s) and classroom door, leave space immediately. The sensors monitor continuously but the display only reads out a 5 minute average. This is to prevent any fuckery by a bunch of kids blowing on it to get out of class. They are all iot devices, but I don't know enough about the network side of them if it's inter or intra net, I do know there is a bridge connected with a cable to the network switch to bring the info to, I presume, our building automation foreman. The school principals get a weekly summary.
  3. Yes it's called an HRV, we use them in Canada, I'm not sure how popular they are stateside. It's also a decent solution for radon gas. https://www.lowes.ca/product/air-exchangers/venmar-air-exchanger-with-heat-recovery-and-hepa-filtration-3-000-sq-ft-536768 The HEPA is a decent addition for $150 especially if you have pets.
  4. We keep the good ones to ourselves, sorry. (not sorry). Anything mass produced is just like McDonalds, it will fill the hole and the crapper, but it's not satisfying.
  5. For historical reference: This is how the Canada USA war started in 2022. Just kidding, because you're talking about micro brew, it would be a war fought by hipsters. Seriously though, if you're ever in Canada around Montreal, hit me up, I'll get you a list of micro breweries that are worth the detour.There are some amazing micro brews on both sides of the border, but generally I avoid all brewery beers like molson coors etc.. The exception being Yuengling. Q: What do american beer and making love in a canoe have in common? A: It's fucking close to water.
  6. Unethical LPT for Mc'd breakfast mcMuffin. This works 8/10 times for me when it's busy. I order a sausage mcmuffin, on the app. Receive a sausage mcmuffin with egg. I'm admittedly a "trying to reform" junk food junkie. Mc'D is supposed to be almost the same all over the world, but even between the US and Canada there's a big difference, their meat is different and US chicken nuggets are gross and nothing like the ones in Canada. Maybe I should say more gross?
  7. OH DROOL! I once had a roommate (from France FWIW) who ate a plantain I was ripening. When I asked if he ate it he said "yes, it was fucking horrible, he could barely eat the whole thing!" He compared it to eating a raw potato. I don't know how he managed to finish it or not get sick, BLEECH! PS MOFONGO!
  8. What kind of roll you use is going to depend on what tools you're carrying? Basic daily tools for patching a flat, or the I'm-going-across-the-country-and-I-need-several-bike-specific-tools kind of kit?
  9. Great price, and great comms, too bad they only fit certain helmets, I'm glad mine is one of them! Mine didn't come with JBL speakers so I bought a set as an upgrade, it's not audiophile quality but a noticeable difference. GLWS
  10. HOLD UP! aren't you a drag racer? A knee down would be a bad thing in that situation IMO.
  11. I've heard the Angel GT's get great mileage, and are decent in the twisties. However, is it possible you're riding the BMW a little more aggressively that you did the bird? It would explain the increased tire wear.
  12. Most of those tires are for touring rigs. Like gold wings, baggers etc… I’m not sure how happy you’d be with a set of 888's on your BMW. They wear like iron and are about as sticky.
  13. I remember that, but I thought they were the same colour.
  14. Nice looking bike, I wonder if the Aussie blue was different than the 99-00 Canadian blue?
  15. The road 5 comes in a GT version, it is supposed to last a little longer. That being said I've never had a tire last 6500 miles, it must be my fat ass. My road 5 gt front was toast just under 6000miles, I'm lucky to get 5000 miles out of a rear. I run weights up front and balance beads in the rear, I've never had an issue or cupping of a tire until it was due for replacement. Unfortunately, Michelin has discontinued the 5gt in my size, so I'll probably run a 5 until the front wears out then replace them with a set of Angel gt2, unless the Dunlop Mutant drops in price is in stock.
