    I have neighbors above, below and to the side with thin walls unfortunately. I get 3 noise complaints before eviction and I've already burned one of them. I'd better save the other 2 since I don't live alone.
    I'll procrastinate tomorrow.

    I'd have to look it up but there was a place where I live that was an "open learning center"
    with 2 giant robots outside so you knew where it was at, anyway it was run by some M.I.T. guys or drop outs that were a little too eccentric for my tastes but they had workspace open for people to do projects, tools and a lot of know how in engineering, mechanical, electric and just about everything you could think of and if you live in a large enough city there might be one open for you. I tried looking it up to get more info for you but it's been so long since I've been to that place I probably couldn't find it again and I can't remember exactly what the place is called so I could google it!
    I'm running a little slow, probably from hunger and subway sounds REALLY GOOD right now!

    I hadn't thought of that, but yeah, that could be a solution for working on it/experimenting. mDust, check this site for a hackerspace near you. They're basically what T_S was describing, though the tools/space/etc available of course will vary depending on the place. I keep meaning to get up with one near me, but..well, it just never happens...

    There was hope but unfortunately it fell through!

    haha. it would look wicked, but it has to cool the computer, not heat it. I have been looking at various materials and their density, viscosity, thermal and electrical conductivity, etc, etc in an effort to make an effect similar to what you're thinking. I've got nothing but planning time since I don't have a workshop where I can actually build things...yet... I'm working on that though. At least with all the time I've had to think this thing through and design, re-design, and re-re-design each and every part, it should be built quite quickly and smoothly.
    I'll procrastinate tomorrow.
