@ August 30, 2002 7:13 AM in A toast to John Gates carreer!Thanks for the inspiration, John. See you at the Gathering!
@ August 29, 2002 8:54 PM in The Gatheringis a 15-minute drive from Worcester, which has an Amtrak station.
@ August 29, 2002 8:49 PM in Miss this and you'll miss a LOT! - Dan H.to working with the hundreds who are already signed up, Mike. What a fine day (and evening!) it's going to be!
@ August 28, 2002 9:18 AM in Radiant Heat Piping - Have you seen this pipe?Does anyone recognize this product?
@ August 27, 2002 10:45 PM in California Steamin' (on such a winter's day) - Dan H.I wouldn't get to use that cool title! But then, there is the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Hmmmm.
@ August 27, 2002 10:44 PM in California Steamin' (on such a winter's day) - Dan H.Much appreciated, Alan.
@ August 27, 2002 4:38 PM in California Steamin' (on such a winter's day) - Dan H.do you know of a new hotel near the Sheraton called Woodspin? The Sheraton can't accomodate a group our size and they recommended Woodspin, which is supposed to be right next door. Can you see it from your window? ;-)
@ August 27, 2002 4:28 PM in steam latent heatthe boiling point of the water (sensible heat) goes up. If you add the two numbers together you'll see that there's really not that much more total BTU in higher-pressure steam than there is in lower-pressure steam. The temperature goes up significantly (for the purposes for which we use it - cooking, process, etc.) but the BTU content isn't that significant.
@ August 27, 2002 1:22 PM in Pump sizingYes, I'm providing the seed and birds are gathering. Ommmmmmmmmmmmm. Be the bird!
@ August 27, 2002 1:02 PM in Pump sizingI've never actualy worked. I watch the birdfeeder and dribble on my shirt.
@ August 27, 2002 12:56 PM in Miss this and you'll miss a LOT! - Dan H.to one of my buddies at GasNetworks. He was adding up their costs for this thing and realized they're giving away $77 worth of food to each person. And that's not counting the free beer. What does the whole day cost? $65. If you're in the area and not coming to this one you're really missing a great deal. Costs more to stay home!
@ August 27, 2002 12:43 PM in Pump sizingdeep into the installation already. If he were doing it from scratch he could figure his required high temperature and then set up a temperature drop, based on the minimum return temperature, say, 140 F. From there, he'd get his required flow rate and then the pipe size and then the pump head. It's all in Primary-Secondary Pumping Made Easy, not Pumping Away.
@ August 27, 2002 12:25 PM in Pump sizingDana, who figured the pump head? You need to know the pipe size before you can get the head.
@ August 27, 2002 11:10 AM in California Steamin' (on such a winter's day) - Dan H.Looking at their website I see that their largest meeting room can seat 100. That's may be theater seating, and if so, the room might be too small since I like our guests to have tables in front of them. Marianne will call and check on the square footage. Thanks, Alan.
@ August 27, 2002 10:56 AM in Agathering of wetheads in vegas?????you two would certainly fit in with this crowd!
@ August 27, 2002 10:54 AM in Anyone else going to ISH in Toronto in Oct/Nov?They haven't even told me where I'm staying yet. Hope to hear soon!
@ August 27, 2002 10:24 AM in California Steamin' (on such a winter's day) - Dan H.I want to do a two-day steam seminar (residential and commercial) in the San Francisco Bay area in January. I'm looking for a suitable hotel that's easy to get to, has room for about 100 people and plenty of parking for service trucks. Any suggestions from you locals would sure be appreciated. Last time we did this we were in San Mateo. Any place better than that? Thanks.
@ August 27, 2002 9:46 AM in Open Space Technology for GatheringI'll be doing them, Mark. That's why I don't want to hand them out that day. Anyone who takes notes will give them to me and I'll be right there to check them and ask for any clarifications on words I can't make out. I'm trying to keep the process as simple as possible. See you soon, pal.
