WEDNESDAY MORNING COFFEE CREW

Hey Everyone,
Hope your day is going well. It's 8 am here and the race is about to start. Have to shoo the little one off to get ready for school, and I have to scoot to jerk (I mean work) I shouldn't say that, things are starting to ease up a bit but not over.
It's friday for me so I'm planning on a SPEEDY and PLEASANT day!


I just have some toast with strawberry jelly and coffee folks so help yourselves.

Have a great day everyone!

Two naaasty lectures this morning. The first of Process Dynamics and Control maths, going over linear second order ordinary differential equations and then moving on to the beginnings of the Laplace transform. Scary. And then Reaction Engineering with a lecturer with the worst-organised notes in history and who doesn't get that even the cleverest of us don't quite have brains that run like his does. Normal people go A B C D E. Clever people can go A C D E. This lecturer goes A σ ω. So I'm currently writing out some notes on various assumptions and equations in use when you're considering diffusion in and out of the pores of a pelleted catalyst.

My brain isn't used to this. I've had four months of holiday and it wants to still be on holiday.

If you believe everything you read, better not read.

Good 'mornin Gaited and everyone. Well work is underway and under control. After lunch I have to help a friend pick up an unbroke 3 year old that he traded a saddle for - a cheap Buffalo saddle for a well papered APHA mare :roll: ... go figure.

Next week he'll be picking up the mare I sold him and I have to go up to NC to pick up 2 AQHA geldings that a Doctor doesn't want any more. He doesn't want to carry them through the winter so he's just giving them to me. I don't know much about them except they are 7 and 8, registered and "easy for a beginner". No matter, I just needed a pasture mate for my gelding.

Coffee sounds great but I need to go easy on the sweets (even if I do cheat every now and then).

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

God, I miss organic chemistry. That was my favourite part of A-level chemistry xD I haven't had a lecture in it yet but I think engineering thermodynamics is going to be my favourite module this semester - out of engthermo, transport phenomena 2, process dynamics, reaceng and labs 2.

It's scary out there. People are just giving away horses and dropping them off at shelters and stables left and right.
Our cost for hay is 15.00 + a bale and board is 200+ a month.
I know of someone who is loosing her house and truck but keeping her horse.
She stopped making payments on the house a couple months ago but the way things are going here, it would be almost a year before she was handed an eviction notice.

Sorry Clair....didn't understand a thing you said. You speaking Greek??

Iride...good luck with those 'freebies.' Sound like a good age, too! (I have to admit...if they are under 9, I usually pass...)

Well, I did switch to the Greek alphabet briefly :P But here, let me show you some of the nice stuff. You know, no equations, entirely qualitative ...

Examples of variables:

Reactor:
- plug flow/CSTR/batch
- size/geometry
- temperature
- pressure
- degree of mixing
- energy transfer
- residence time

Feed:
- composition
- temperature
- flow rate

Modes of operation:
- isothermal/non-isothermal
- adiabatic/non-adiabatic
- complete mixing
- plug flow
- non ideal flow

Also consider:
- steady/unsteady state
- COST!

Money, money money xD It comes into everything we do, of course.

What sort of things did the other school/university students here learn today?

If you believe everything you read, better not read.
