You must be new to this. Acetone, being 100% volatile, goes away cleanly. Perfect for whole-extract cannabinoids.

Supercritical CO2 is not expensive. Not by any means. You can get it dirt cheap at paintball stores.

Alcohol and water is not a problem when you still have to do far less heat-purging versus butane/propane/hexane.

Yup, really new to this.

So I was given an Intel DG41TY motherboard with a Core 2 Duo E7500, 2.9 GHz.

I wanted to OC the board a bit. Looking around, none of the direct FSB mod programs supported my clock generator.

Fuck it - we're bit-banging this motherfucker MANUALLY WITH A PIEZOELECTRIC LIGHTER IGNITOR.

As a Charter customer, here's how lax they are.

1. Order just internet and phone service, lowest-tier speeds. They come and hook you up with a combo phone/modem, stuff works, you're cruising the internet.
2. Wait two months, call Charter and ask for an upgrade to their maximum-speed plan.
3. They come out with ANOTHER modem (without the phone built-in,) on the claim you need that modem to attain the higher speeds.
4. Tech hooks up the modem, gets it set, leaves.
5. The other modem NEVER gets deprovisioned for internet.
6. You now have two IP addresses and two maximum-speed connections for the price of one. Yes, that other modem is MORE THAN CAPABLE of handling Charter's maximum speed.
7. Multiplex those motherfuckers together and absolutely RAPE Charter's network. They don't seem to care all that much.

So to find out that they are so lax as to allow something like this to happen, not a surprise, at all.

"Nice to know I'm not the only one whose first thought is "Who in the hell is gonna have enough experience with 53 fricking SBCs to actually give a rating on anything other than name recognition?"."

Any engineer able to read datasheets could give a theoretical review and rating.

Good thing I'm competent enough for that. Are you?

"Companies like Coca-Cola, Johnson & Johnson, Proctor & Gamble and the like didn't get to the size they are because they had idiots in the sales and marketing departments."

I can most certainly guarantee you Coca-Cola was staffed by idiots and frauds. All that medical quackery to sell their product when they first came out is a prime example.
