Taking the current fad for heat pumps one step further, is there a reason we couldn't have other appliances hooked into circuits of cold/hot/return pipes carrying a refrigerant or coolant throughout the house? For example, your refrigerator or water heater would be just a passive heat exchanger with a thermostat to open and close a valve when necessary.

In the case of a refrigerator, this would mean that in summer, the heat gets pumped to the water heater or directly outdoors, rather than getting pumped into your kitchen by the refrigerator and then pumped outdoors by the A/C. And in winter, the waste heat gets pumped into your HVAC to heat the whole house and not just the kitchen.

In the case of the water heater, this would mean that in summer, you're scavenging heat into your water that would be dumped outdoors by a traditional A/C. In winter, you'd be sucking heat in from the outdoors and from your fridge, and only having to run a heating element to make up the difference when necessary.

Diagrams to illustrate are mine. Yes I know the heat exchangers would be counter-current, but I tried to draw them as simply as possible.

Anyone know if it's possible to generate entries locally on ? The service I use (at 2606:4700:4700::64) seems to be misbehaving, but DNS is reported to be fully functional on the Cloudflare status page. It seems like ought to have all the information it needs to generate an AAAA record corresponding to the A record, so I could just use standard upstream, but I can't figure out how to do it.

Hoy en 1863, hace 161 años: en la ciudad de Bagdad (Irak), el religioso Bahá'u'lláh anuncia públicamente su misión en el jardín de Ridván. Los bahá'ís lo celebran como un día sagrado que inicia el Festival de Rizván.

En cada episodio de la serie 'Nimkat', escuchamos la narración de una bahá'í de sus estudios, junto con las observaciones de una persona no bahá'í de sus amigos bahá'ís. Narraciones de esperanza en el colmo de la desesperación y determinación a pesar de la injusticia duradera.

@elpalabrista mira el Templo Baha’i de Santiago. También tomé una foto del interior a escondidas. Impresionante.

I have an unopened soft drink can sitting in a fairly cold part of my home, and at night it's now cold enough to reduce the pressure of the carbon dioxide inside the can to almost exactly atmospheric pressure. Each time the heat cycled on or off, it caused a metallic ping as the slightly domed lid inverted to equalize the pressure.

Wasn't until this morning that I figured out where that noise was coming from.

It’s all fine as well to thank a veteran for their “service to the country”. But when was the last time you thanked an accountant in your local government for stewarding your tax dollars? When was the last time you thanked a teacher for creating a future American? When is the last time you thanked the guy that’s paving the road you drive on every day? Those folks spend their entire lives serving their country and, quite frankly, they are ignored. They all serve. Their contributions are many.

Just upgraded multiple nodes on my home network to the new @OpenWrt version... and nothing broke. I did my homework and tried to avoid known pitfalls, sure - but that never happens. It feels like the laws of nature are suspended today.

Some differences between 🇺🇸 American Football and 🇨🇦 Canadian 🏈 Football:
🔸️Canadian football has 3 downs as opposed to 4
🔸️The Canadian field is larger with a playing length of 110 yards and 20 yard endzones
🔸️Canadian Football allows one more player, which must play the backfield
🔸️The entire backfield can be in motion before the snap
🔸️The goal posts are at the goal line
🔸️Kicking the ball through the end zone results in a single point, known as a Rouge. #CFLOM #GreyCup
