Random learny things

Postby 2cool4me4 » Fri Mar 29, 2013 9:44 pm

That's about all I have to say, this will be a bit of a place for anyone, including me, to put anything random that they've learned today, yesterday... a year ago...

Anyway, I'm just going to get started.

Yesterday, I took apart an old floppy drive. After quite a bit of work today, I got the spindle motor (the large one that spins the floppy around) to spin at several different speeds. Aside from that, I found a cool stepper motor that could be used for different tasks (though they seem to be more interesting still inside the drive.)

Once you have mastered the :usevalue:, you are a truly awesome 001er.

That video may have just made my face melt.

Two months ago I learned that sunspots are formed when opposing magnetic forces of the sun create a vortex, drawing in radiation and plasma. Which then are ejected as CMEs(Coronal Mass Ejections) and the physics of said vortexes can be measured in the same manner of a tornado here on Earth.

Tea tastes different if you put milk in the cup before pouring the tea in ( from a POT, not some barbaric tea bag in a cup...), as opposed to putting the tea in first. Sugar makes no difference to the taste no matter when it is put in. To a tea addict like me, this is useful. I like the Milk-in-first taste best.
