How to Defrost Your Freezer

Uahhhh… 🙁 I went to the basement today and discovered this. Seems I’ll have to defrost the fridge (actually, both of my fridges) to make sure they work properly again. Here’s how to do it (this is a manly hint):

 

 

 

 

 


Stirling Engine

 

How cool! I found my old model stirling engine (similar to this one) while rummaging through the basement. It even works with a hot cup of tea! Read more about this cool gadget and the underlying interesting principle here on wikipedia.


Nice to Know: AC/DC Symbolism

Got myself a (fairly simple) multimeter for the northern germany refuge lately.

I wonder if I will eventually arrive at a point in my life when I’ve memorized these two simple symbols without having to look them up. Every. Single. Time. 🙂

Edit: Here’s a good explanation on how multimeters work (german language – sorry).


Nice to Know: Finding an LED’s Polarity

LED PolarityI needed this for a project that I’m working on at the moment (I can never remember it correctly…) I thought perhaps someone might find it useful.

More about LEDs on Wikipedia.


How Networks Work

I stumbled upon an absolutely great article on how computer networks work last night. That guy really did a great job explaining networking basics in simple and understandable words! If you’re interested in the matter, read it here on imgur


Beef Cut Chart

Here’s a nice overview of beef cuts, displayed on the wall of a nice restaurant (“Beef Kitchen“) where we had dinner last night.


Nice to Know: Trailer Weight Distribution

I don’t know where this video is from, but it’s very interesting, especially for campers.


How does an Assault Rifle work?

I’m not really into guns – I don’t own one (and I surely don’t have a permit), I don’t know too much about them and I wasn’t even in the Army… But this video really got me with it’s super cool explanation of how that “magic” works mechanically.


How a Torque Converter Works

This is a highly interesting (german language) video about the function of the torque converter that drives every car with an automatic transmission. I didn’t know that before and learned a lot! 


Finding North with a Watch

Although it’s overcast and cloudy today, I was able to locate the sun. I tried this out with a compass and hey, this Shit works!
