That patch to improve performance of Incarna and solve overheating?

Did it burn out?


damn i'm currently agreeing to one of millia's post, the end of the world is near...

well anyway, answer is easy ; devs' holliday + not much rage left = they don't feel on a hurry at all anymore.

Basically, what you are proposing would mean anything that uses potential energy would heat up towards infinity because they "can generate heat faster than any heatsink [basically the environment in the general case] can sink it", which of course is impossible; entropy must always increase. The maximum heat capacity for solids is around 3 R per mole.


If an oxy-acetylene torch is focussed on the end of a steel rod you can raise the temperature of the heated end until it is a running liquid while the other end is still cool enough to hold.
the heated end is gaining energy faster than the rod can sink it.
Welding wouldn't work otherwise...

Not exactly at equilibrium then? Lots of spew on both sides of this thermodynamic wrestle.
