Nick's Notes

A mostly benighted mélange of observations, perspectives and periodic rants.

  1. Iml8

    by , 07-15-2014 at 05:34 PM (Nick's Notes)
    IML8 - people get it right away. "I'm late." Simple, but it wasn't all that long ago that people didn't "get it" right away. When I first started using the internet with CompuServe back in the 1980s, people weren't so use to deciphering acronyms and abbreviations as they are today.

    Internet slang has become so ingrained and commonplace in our culture that even if you don't immediately recognize an acronym you can usually figure it out in fairly short order from ...

  2. Speed Steeping your E-Liquids

    by , 06-27-2014 at 05:13 AM (Nick's Notes)
    What is going on during steeping? All I have to offer is somewhat insouciant, but semi-educated speculation. I only escaped with a B in my university chemistry requirement and it's certainly not my field, so take what I have to say with a grain of salt and note that your mileage may vary.

    We know that various solvents, e.g. water and alcohol, evaporate more quickly at higher temperatures and that evaporation takes place at the surface of a liquid. Generally speaking the more strongly ...

  3. Aspire BDC

    Something I've noticed about some (not all) of the new style Aspire BDC replacement coils is that it takes a long, long time for them to get properly primed. They recommend letting them set for 3 to 5 minutes. I recommend letting them set for about an hour. Simply drawing without firing doesn't really seem to do much to help it along either.

    Update: It seems I got a couple in a row that were partially blocked from wicking properly in the beginning for some reason or other, *shrugs* ...

  4. I get to have a blog here?

    by , 06-18-2014 at 05:55 AM (Nick's Notes)
    Clearly, somebody didn't think this thing all the way through. Or maybe they did.

    It's possible, I suppose, that having this blog could curb my propensity to ramble on in the forums...hahahahahah...nah, I doubt it.

    I really do hate writing.

    My prose sucks, my grammatical ineptitude is legend, my spelling is horrendous and I cause punctuation Nazis to have heart palpitations, but I just can't seem to help myself. I don't usually think I have anything particularly ...
