Ok, this was perfect for a sleepy wednesday … I haven’t said much about Barcelona. Yeah, it released. Yeah, I want to play with some. No, I don’t have any (big hint there AMD….)

Yeah, well, thats about the size of it. Carbon footprint? Nah. “Chestnuts” roasting over an open server? Yeah….
Heat costs money, to generate and remove. If it (the heat) could be stored somewhere, we might be able to get some more use out of it later, limited by inefficiencies of the pumping, storage, and retrieval process). The problem is that heat pumps also consume energy, and are not 100% efficient. That darned thermodynamics … just can’t seem to get away from it .
