One of our 10 gig network switches is kinda loud, so the obvious solution is to water cool it.

You'd think they'd hire a machinist to mentor Alex. Alex has the ambition and knowledge, but everyone needs a little more experience with shop tools than they get in engineering course work. Yes, I'm a shop teacher and yes social learning theory calls for this type of hands-on approach.

it's hillarious watching alex expend money on things (like the caliber) and then explaining to linus why he bought that in a really unconvincing way...
P.D.: you need to buy a mill linus... XD

Netgear doesn't give a lot of fucks about cooling. This is something i've noticed on a lot of their products.

Guys, please buy Milwaukee m12 drills. They do everything that ryobi does, but without a cord, and at a less ridiculous speed and have a brake so that the bit stops when you let go of the trigger....

Then water cool the m12 so you can have DUAL cords!
