"The average heat pump or central air conditioner sold in 1986 had an

Ask the IT Tech what needs to be flashed when you install a hard drive.

Don't waste your keystrokes on this troll. Beryl and Snoman are 2
personalities trapped in one body. The Beryl personality expends so much
energy typing coherent sentences that it taxes the physical limits of the
combined body. Have you ever seen Beryl and Snoman post near the same time?
Uh, must have mis-understood this one myself, but I'm sure someone
will correct me post haste.. I have been dicking with computers
for at least half my life and can't recall a single time "flashing"
anything, except my middle finger at the computer, when recovering the
system. Unless, of course, you consider installing an OS on the
new hard drive to be "Flashing" the new OS onto the system. Go
ahead, flame on.
Anyway, here's something I was told about a long time ago and have
always wanted to try it but never have gotten around to it -- Take
the complete A/C system from a car and use it to cool a house. The
example I was told about was for a house on the NC Outer Banks and
supposedly used a Delco A-6 compressor and an electric motor to spin
it. I do not know from where the other components were sourced. I
could see using a larger evaporator and condensor, possibly.. anyone
done this in the past? Sure, I know it's probably more logical just
to use a central unit..
Self proclaimed? Funny, my dergree is in Network Technology and I was
hired on as a GS-9 2210 (IT Tech), but I am self proclaimed.
Also of interesting and funny note, never once did I ever state or
mention starting my own biz in Tucson. I did state I started one, but
you are assuming it was in Tucson based off the fact that this is
where I live now.
I suppose I should not be surprised that the simple minded would jump
to such conclusions. Oh well. Hey, they are building a brand new 40k
sq. ft mental health ward at work, I'll have them reserve a room for
lol! Well, I might try it if I had dirigible hangar in AZ or NM and
needed to store gourmet chocolate.
The cooling capacity of an automobile's A/C is much greater than that
of a house because you don't have to deal with driving down the road
in a house, am I right? That is the only reason I have toyed with the
idea instead of dismissing it immediately.
As usual, Beryl jumped to several conclusions in that thread in an attempt
to insult me. First he (at least I think it's a male) assumed I was
installing Adobe Flash player, then it assumed I re-installed the same
version of the system BIOS, then it assumed I didn't perform any software or
hardware upgrades. Because it never asked me a question, only attempted to
belittle me, I played with it, letting it make assumptions and I only
corrected it when it was wrong (which was just about every reply to me). 1
or 2 questions on it's part may have prevented it from looking like an ass,
but I doubt that; it's not its habit to to be helpful, only to attack.
Given Beryl's reputation in this NG (just search for his posts and you'll
see enough to know what I mean), Azwiley1 got caught up in it too, and later
gave a specific example regarding the above quote, but Beryl doesn't seem to
believe him. I'm not familiar with the hardware in the example, so I can't
comment on that.
Beryl on the other hand, comments on lots of things, and sometimes admits it
knows nothing about what it was talking about, yet it blames that on the
person it is responding to.
Hang out here long enough and you might have a change play with it too.
Except it was you who plopped into the thread with incorrect assumptions
in your attempt to insult me.

"You posted something about 2-6V golf cart batteries in series versus
2-12V batteries in parallel that you had read many years ago in an RV
magazine, but I doubt you understood the nature of the article."
And after I explained to you that the article was about connections -
parallel vs. series connections - *not* about different types of
batteries, you never even thanked me! You got some kind of problem?
"During the time of the "electrical questions" thread my computer
suffered a hard drive crash, it took me a few days to re-install the OS,
drivers, a few flash updates I had missed, restore from backup, etc."
So does a BIOS flash have anything to do with reloading the junk on your
hard drive? Hmmm?
Here's one example of your sloppiness, Edith:
"You don't read so well. I stated that I installed some flash updates
that I had missed. I never said I re-installed them, moron."
But you clearly did say you re-installed them, *moron*.
Are drivers and flash updates just hanging there in mid-sentence with no
verb to indicate what you did with them? No! Flash updates were
re-installed according to you.
Did I? Inconsequential, but go ahead and point it out anyway. I think
you're making it up.
Inconsequential, but point it out. I think you're making this up too.
I asked you quite a few, but you'd never answer them. I think the
"electrical questions" thread that you looked at got you spooked, and
you were afraid to give any specifics when asked.
I explained that I choose what I want to flash to my BIOS, while you
made vague remarks about wanting to override a flash after it began. You
avoided giving any details. Apparently you do some "live" online flash
updates, just click an *OK* button and hope for the best. But who knows?
"you frequently make assumptions
in your desire to be an ass."
"Your a moron."
"you assume often, which makes you're posts so
"again, your assumptions lead you to argue about a wrong conclusion."
"i don't feel like spelling it out for you."
Depends on the crowd :^)
A punk infested group invites attacks.
And later regretted it.
Of course I don't believe him! The little goof was getting data
corruption with his SATA drive, and proclaimed that some mysterious
"thing" needs to be flashed whenever a new drive is installed.
And then he denied ever saying that:
"Really, care to show me where? You can't because I never said that
and I have re-read ever post I have made in this thread concerning
It's generic, the specific board and drive make no difference and
weren't even mentioned in the little goof's original statement. You just
aren't smart enough to comment on it.
While this could be done, what exactly would be the point? By the time you
are done building the structure to hold the compressor, condenser, drive
motor, cooling fan, and then create all of the plumbing for the evaporator
and fitting it into your air handler, you would probably spend even more
money and a hell of a lot more time than just buying a comparable unit.
If at first you don't succeed, you're not cut out for skydiving
Precisely why I threw the idea out there... to debunk it with the
brains of others instead of just my own.
The only point of it, I could imagine, is that the cooling capacity
would be much greater than your "average" home unit. That's it.
Where did you get a number like that? I really doubt it could be that high
considering the size of the compressor, condensor, and evaporator in a car.
While the compressor in a vehicle may be capable of moving much more freon
than the self-contained motor - compressor assembly typically found in a 2
ton home unit, it would take one HUGE electric motor to drive it that hard
and the electricity needed to power such a motor (if you could even find
one) would give it a SEER rating of near zero and you would still need a
huge evaporator and condenser to get 10 to 20 tons out of it.
If they can really pump that much Freon, then I guess that I'm not either
If at first you don't succeed, you're not cut out for skydiving
Even with a cars blower running on full the volume of air is miniscule
compared to a typical homes A/C unit. The volume in a car is pretty tiny.
Try running only the front A/C in a large SUV such as a Suburban or even
a mid sized such as a Durango. The back passengers will complain
loudly. A house is a bit larger than an SUV in volume!
Ok well i'm thinking the guy was probably FOS now that I discuss it
with you guys, but .. "supposedly" the setup was with a Delco A-6
compressor and with R-12. He said he used a 3 horse electric motor
to spin the thing... too bad he didn't have pictures to prove that
this wasn't just some BS fabrication.
