If air conditioner efficiency improves when it rains outside, why don't all air conditioners include water sprayers to help cool them? by magnora7 in science

The rain lowers the head pressure and changes the evaporation and condensation temperatures of the refrigerant and can actually make it cool less that it should.

So I looked it up, it takes 2.45 Wh to raise the temperature of one gallon by one degree F. So if the water goes from 80F to 120F, that's 98 Wh. That's remarkably close to the 100 Wh break-even.

So if you had access to cheap water, or had expensive electricity, this might actually save money and use less energy overall. Or if the water delta is more than 40 degrees, that'd made it cost effective too.

Yeah I might get an attic fan, I was looking in to that today too. My temp gun read out 165F on the attic ceiling, and 145F on the floor. Pretty dang hot.

I tried a little experiment and put a gallon of water on the external unit. It cooled it from 140F to 95F, and it evaporated in about 90 seconds because of the heat. Then about 20 minutes later it was back up to 140F.

From a cost perspective, a gallon of water costs 1 cent. 1 cent of electricity is 100Wh. I think it'd be very hard to save 100Wh with one gallon going from 80F to 140F, not sure how many Joules (or watt-hours) that is.

Haha I might try it out on my AC. I mean I could literally just spray it with my hose sprayer by hand and measure the efficiency difference I think, to test it out. Then build a little control circuit with one of those electronic water hose switch boxes and a hose to the spigot

If it works that'd be amazing. I guess the efficiency from rain is already proven. It's just a matter of if it's more cost effective for the water use vs energy savings

Haha. I see what you mean.

I'm simply imagining a small hose that does a tiny mist to simulate rain, just above the outside unit, only while it's running, and only when the outside temp is over 85F.

I think that might avoid the mold issues.

We're talking about removing heat from the condenser, #3 in the diagram. Which is normally done with just dry air outside, and a fan, and a radiator. But if you sprayed some water on there too, the heat might leave even more quickly...

Interesting analysis.

Maybe it could only be activated on super-hot days, when the efficiency gains would be particularly high? And the high heat would also guarantee the water would all evaporate quickly so it wouldn't hang around for too long, which seems the source of a lot of the problems.

This isn't the part that draws in air though. It's just the part that gets rid of the heat. So even if it filled with mold it wouldn't affect the air supply. The air that you breathe is re-circulated within the house only. But that's a good point about the mold. I guess (I would hope) it would dry out between runs, when it shuts off for 30 minutes or whatever.

Didn't know shills came on here to post holohoax fallacies.

Yeah me neither until recently. It's a little adventure we're all going on together. Ideologues HATE neutral media sources like saidit. They want to turn us in to voat by flooding the front page with voat-like material, to delegitimize this website in the eyes of newcomers and more neutral users.

Somehow Voat hasn't hijacked that forum yet, which leads me to believe they are pretty ban heavy when it comes to trolls, shills, bait posts, and any comments that do not bring to the table well thought out arguments or reasonable questions.

Yes this is how most sites (like reddit) operate. Anything that looks bad at all is immediately removed, but saidit has more rigorous standards than the admin saying "I don't like this". It's a fine line to walk.

I don't mind discussion about this type of stuff, I just do NOT want it dominating saidit or else we are just a shitty voat and then our normal users will leave, and our voat-like users will just stay on voat, thus killing this site. That is undoubtedly the goal of these types of brigades.

Yes the fact it is illegal in so many countries is questionable tbh. There's lot of discussion to be had.

However it's sometimes difficult to distinguish someone trying to convey useful information, from someone just posting inflammatory links while pretending to share legitimate information. It's a common shill tactic and I expect we'll see more and more of it.

My #1 goal here is to keep saidit from becoming voat. That's the whole reason we made this website in the first place. And I hope we can figure out some way to address these information attacks, while avoiding becoming a censorship-haven like reddit is. We're trying to walk that line and it's not easy, and people are trying to knock of off of our perch at every opportunity. Some people really hate that this site exists, and hasn't picked a "side" and that we actually aspire to be neutral and information-based. We've been able to defend against them so far with vigilance. We are trying to figure out some way to defend against this that is a little more automated, but it's tricky.

Have you seen the front page of voat? Are you aware of what it is we're trying to avoid looking like?

Like I've said before, I don't mind a bit of discussion, but creating dueling subs about this is something that ruined voat and I don't want us to get ruined the same way. We just had someone create 10 accounts and upvote themselves and spammed about 10 articles related to only the holocaust. It's a subject that's been beaten to death and I'm fine discussing it, but there is no reason for it to become a singular focal point of saidit. If people want that kind of focus on that one issue, then go to voat.

If this site becomes exactly like voat, then why would anyone come here?

If every link on the front page says "holohoax" then who is that going to convince? It's just going to be preaching to the choir. It just doesn't make sense to let our site get ruined this way

Our mission goal is to avoid become voat and reddit, and you are the biggest cause of failure in that direction right now.

I want you to stop creating subs, and stop being mod of more subs. You are trying to be a "powermod" which is a mod who tries to take over the site by controlling too many subs. This is one thing that ruined reddit. So stop it if you want us to believe you are acting in good faith.

I don't think you understand the seriousness of this. You need to change your behavior. Now.

Exactly. We want to avoid the whole powermod situation. It's another reason we have a 2-week waiting period between registering subs.

A meme deserving of #1 spot on Reddit by Vigte in MeanwhileOnReddit

Nothing on the front page of reddit is organic. The growth of this area 51 meme is one of the least-organic things I have ever seen.

Wow that sucks... This is a big deal for Japan, which has very low rates of homicide violence.

Funny just yesterday I was watching a documentary yesterday about tatami flooring in Kyoto, that was on reddit

I want you to stop creating so many subs. You collect these little communities like baseball cards, and it comes across like a power grab. Not a good look. Tone it down.

Our mission goal is not to become voat. If this site becomes obsessed with the holocaust, then we become voat. I don't mind a few posts, but a whole sub is overkill, especially 2 subs

pull ur app boys, time to boycott f-droid by Broken-needles350 in SaidIt

I don't like what they did to the Gab app, but I don't think we should pull ours. We'd only be hurting ourselves, imo. Not like f-droid cares about us or our app anyway. If there was a good alternative that'd be one thing, but I don't really see one.

At one point they discuss the origin of the word 'fuck', so I looked it up, and it's a pretty interesting article: https://www.etymonline.com/word/fuck

I liked this part in particular:

It became so common that an effective way for the soldier to express this emotion was to omit this word. Thus if a sergeant said, 'Get your ----ing rifles!' it was understood as a matter of routine. But if he said 'Get your rifles!' there was an immediate implication of urgency and danger. [John Brophy, "Songs and Slang of the British Soldier: 1914-1918," pub. 1930]

Also

Fuck was outlawed in print in England (by the Obscene Publications Act, 1857) and the U.S. (by the Comstock Act, 1873).

I never would've guessed it had been banned so long ago in print.

I just posted one video about it, it seemed pretty important because I learned about the amount of cancers it caused that I previously didn't know about. I don't really have a trend of posting about it though, personally

I agree. I used to be 'meh' about it, but now I actively hate it because it's shoved in our faces so often. It's Disney's cash cow (one among many).

My grandfather was American fought in WW2 and says he was present when the US military opened the gates of Dachau concentration camp.

I think there were so many camps to liberate that multiple forces did multiple liberations. But you're right I've never heard that bit about the French & Albanians, having gone through American public schools

We have a mobile site for narrow screens like phones, check it out at m.saidit.net

This is a backup if we were to lose the app somehow.

Saidit is hosted in Switzerland.

There is no bitchute bot for saidit. We might develop something like this in the distant future, but it's not currently in the works.

Let me know if you have any more questions.

A few questions about a new Saidit installation by portcity in SaidIt

[–]magnora7 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Oh no it doesn't matter at all. I just thought it was funny because I've never tried injecting test data after creating an account, only before. I was just laughing at the code's eccentricities, it has no bearing on the functionality of the site.

The SSL thing is not too bad, d3rr has the procedure down to a science, do it how he suggests. We have to do the SSL renewal every 2 months.

Thank you for documenting your path as you launch this! I'm sure it will help others who try and do the same in the future. The more that is documented, the better!

If you get stuck do not hesitate to ask for help! We're excited to help people set up more saidits

This site is against censorship, but that also doesn't mean it's a total free-for-all. That's the thing a lot of people don't get. Boundaries have to exist for this site to continue.

I don't want reddit levels of censorship either, that's also our stated mission. But we're much more in danger of becoming voat than we are of becoming reddit.

I don't care if it's considered censorship. People have already tried to push that angle. Our key missions are not to become voat, and not to become reddit.

If I have to delete a few posts and remove a few users to keep us from becoming voat, then so be it. I'd rather have a nice community people can actually feel comfortable in, than to cling to some idealized version "free speech" that just serves to give people an opening to fuck this website up and hoist us on our own petard and make saidit look like voat.
