    Heat pipes and gravity...?

    Are computer grade heatpipes affected by gravity??

    A little bit, but they're all internal wick type heatpipes if that is what you mean.
    Typically there is a 0-3*c difference (varies by heatsink) between laying the mobo down for gravity return and it standing up forcing wicking return.

    Hum... I am surprised.
    I expected some kind of technical debate to arise.... Oh well.

    Just as an FYI, if you are trying to represent degrees, you can do so by holding down the ALT key and pressing 2 4 8 on your number pad to get the character.

    ALT+(number) seems to change tabs here in Ubuntu/firefox.
    Which is actually pretty awesome, I've been wondering how to change tabs with the keyboard for quite some time.
