If Stainless Steel is Stainless, Why Does it Rust?

I'm always amazed when people are amazed at rusty stainless steel.

And why didn't you just get a glass kettle instead? I have the Hamilton-Beach 1.7 litre kettle myself and it works like a champ. No plastic to worry about. And the blue LEDs look cool.

This is the first answered question about your kettle on Amazon:

The jar is not totally made of glass. I bought the kettle after reading these answers and wondered how the glass jar is attached to the stainless steel heating element. There is some kind of plastic (maybe silicone?) part that holds that glass jar and the heating element together and also acts as a sealant. I opened the lid after emptying the hot water (while the pot was still hot) and got a whiff of a very strong plastic odor. I'm pretty certain that the plastic part is being heated to high temperatures. My pot is going back.

No, the LED ring is sealed in glass - it's all one continual piece. So I have no idea what he's talking about. It could have been something in the heating element underneath it but I've had nary a problem like that. That's why I went with this one as the only bits where the water is is stainless steel and glass.

To be fair, that post talks about smell, not taste. And it's certainly worrisome if a new device emits smells while it's supposed to be boiling water, which would indicate an internal temperature touching something plastic above 240C , and that means you can expect a fault. It could be manufacturing thing that only happens every so often. Plenty of reviews talk about bad smells.

I got really badly burned out from this after just the 30 days they give you after purchase.. no urge to go back to it. The grind is hardcore later on.

Hooking and turning around (facing a cliff ,p) was one of my greatest joys in Overwatch.. sigh. I never thought Roadhog was overpowered, this hook change makes him completely useless on certain maps where little "details" block LOS ;/

It's why I actually find this game becoming too *fixed* for it's own good. Roadhog is a stalemate breaker, and DVA is a carry (meaning a good player can help an otherwise lower skilled team) the 2 together can easily disrupt formations, and counter high-skilled tracers (which is otherwise nearly impossible to do if your team doesn't pay attention)

Overall I still dislike Overwatch match-making as a whole though ;/ It's is by far the worst

yeh packet loss is a given, but even if was 100% the raw speed on the networks is too shitty already for any kind of stable connections for such high bandwidth

the only way around this is some kind of direct connection to the cloud with some kind of superspeed wireless tech... which is definitely possible but not going to happen anytime soon

I'm kind of curious how this tech works in Korea. Their entire country is basically on Gbps+, so if it'd work anywhere, it'd work there. I'm thinking it'd still look pretty bad though.

Streaming quality is exceptional on my steamlink.. but that is local gbit network and also highly depends on the GPU power, more power = better encode within the frametime limits. But you will always have some latency, around 100ms for input, no matter what. Not bad for some games, horrible for some other games.

I wish these NAS tests were done a bit more professionally.

You might like this site.

More pro, but still no talk about the actual nitty gritty of a NAS, 0 mention of noise, vibration and temperature curves. All things that matter immensely when you pack discs close together. These 10tb drives for example that they like to show their e-peen with, generate immense heat under full load. But even that site does NOT TEST FOR FULL LOAD. They do performance tests, not load tests.

This bothers me for a while with these so called "professional" storage review sites, NONE of them do load or re-initialization tests. (with 6x10 TB drives, that would have been a really good laugh by the way) (ps.: Talking about a random latest review from that site which had even less (informative) details than the QNAP review ,p)

If you don't care about this, buy a usb hub and external drives (they are better shock absorbed than a NAS any day of the week, especially if they got rubber feet) but for someone who has 2 NAS I have been through so much shit because reviews "forget" to look at the important facts. And the only way I discovered that my QNAP boxes are shit, is when the temp reached 61C on full load (8+ hrs of constant IO), with the fan running at 100%.. I mean, WTF?

Is there no site that does proper and in-depth NAS hardware testing?

I wish these NAS tests were done a bit more professionally.. as in, temperature/DB's on idle, and especially on load with a full stack of 4TB drives in each bay... how it behaves on re-initialization of the raid (which on 4TB drives, can easily take many many days if the hardware is shit)

As it is, it's another useless "review" which doesn't go really into the nitty gritty, nitty gritty like fan replacements which are going to be a thing with these. QNAP isn't exactly building high quality stuff, sadly. (Have my own personal horror story with that companies NAS systems...)

Might have something to do with this

"This change uses DirectX 11 natively, which brings support for normal maps, per pixel lighting and improved anti-aliasing options"

You are right MSAA in options, FINALLY. By the gfx gods, this makes ALL the difference. Gone is the god awful blur, everything looks sharper and more defined.

For a game that is this old this is a very nice change. Now if only they'd ramp up the textures. This game begs to have a HD texture pack!

While it is nice to have an extended quiet weekend, it does seem like the lack of news in general (with everyone off) is a little maddening...

I'm sure we'll get back to the crazy and announcements in general pretty soon...


Plenty of non gaming news for my taste, and none of them good ;/

Also ETS 2 under sit back and relax? WTF? Nobody who voted that ever did a long distance delivery with traffic on.

I think I voted for ETS2 there, I think it's very relaxing. Granted, I was never too bothered about the occasional crash or speeding ticket.

I was going to vote for ETS2 too, but I think ATS is a much better game. Nothing more relaxing than driving in Nevada with some country music playing.

You guys must have some iron man like nerves, the AI drivers in ETS2 drive me insane But then I realize I would also be a horribly potty mouthed truck driver in reality. ^^

News Comments > Steam Top 100 of 2016

Speaking of the Division, there was a sale for it, I bought it.. and after 10 hours or so I absolutely and totally hate this game. It is not just a totally mediocre game, but it is an ABYSMAL loot based cover shooter. Even Gears of War 1, yes, the shitty console port from yonder, is a flat out superior combat experience.

Top it off with korean and chinese players ONLY and you got a recipe for total COOP disasters, half the players can't even write basic english words.

The graphics are fantastic, but everything else about this game is shit. Damn, I should have skipped this one....

Look at the games that won, and despair. For that is the current generation of gamers. Also ETS 2 under sit back and relax? WTF? Nobody who voted that ever did a long distance delivery with traffic on.
