roomates....
« on: September 06, 2001, 09:22:00 PM »

sheesh, mine isn't that bad, but there are only 2 things that i've got bitching about (otherwise he's really kewl)

1- The noise. That black label delta is loud, and he lets me know it. I don't mind it, but i'm forced to shut my bad boy off at night (boooo)

2- Cold. He doesn't like it. Always too cold, i've got the thermostat down to 60 to keep my bad boyz cold during a counter-strike fragfest (college is like one big lan party, schweetness), and it's too cold for him. Understandable, so i've been keeping it around 68, and still too cold.

Otherwise, i think i lucked out. Of course, it's only been a week, but i don't forsee any other problems...

Now, anybody else get these types of reactions, or anything else you wanna bitch about? (It's good to let it out, theraputic and stuff)

set a box fan in the window and leave it on all the time... medium or low it will drown out the noise of the delta...  and he will get use to the box fan going and his brain will start to block out your screaming delta...

As for the cold set it at 70, then over the course of the week lower it to 68, then 66 the next week...  Its like boiling a frog they don't know they are in an problems if you do it slowly, but if you just shove them into it the jump right out...

when I wake up my room is 17C and climbs to about 30 in the day... my hands are cold but i don't care, he will adjust.

Its funny my roomate had the same issues... (Excpet I had a delta and a 120 mm pushing 138+ CFM...) these are how I solved them. :D

oh if the box fan trick doesn't work, if he goes to bed before you do, make sure h e is asleep, go into the room turn on your delta and leave it on.  do this for about a week, he should adjust to the sound of the delta...

haha, this is why i suck up to winter so much. he's a friggin genius.

the problem, tho, is that i go to bed earlier and wake up earlier (usually) than him...

it's 20 after 8 right now, he's still in bed, and i don't have any classes until 11:30 (but i have a 5 1/2 hour run of classes from 11:30 to 5pm, tho). anyway, i'll try that with the cold, but i doubt that'll work w/ the delta...
