I tried to help you out, my friend. Don't know if it worked, though...

Having to walk though / around everyone elses (company) workspace / cubicles to get to mine in the morning.

Once at work it's not a big deal, but not everyone arrives at the same hour.

If one could analogise that just think of the CPU heatsink if there were not a fan blowing air across the fins the the heatsink would cool much more slowly than when the air is flowing at a high rate across the fins. because the air current acros the fins "picks up" the heat and carries it away.

Air is more readily heated than harder or more dense materials because the lower number of atoms that are "agitated" because of that lower density.
To go to a ridiculously extreme and unlikely example if lead could be poured across the skin the high density of it would take some time to absorb any radiated heat. But I stand to be corrected.

It annoys me to have hot lead poured across my skin!

Oh, oh.. and there are guys that do that...with lead (they pre dip their hands in water, really thin layer, and do several dips into orange molten lead and even copper! I swearz it!

But to enter into your geekdom: you forgot to mention, the evaporation of sweat, or water/saline phase change from liquid to gas is exothermic, gives off heat - because it needs to exert so much energy (a.k.a. heat) to overcome the stronger bonds of the liquid phase molecules which are held tightly together, compared to vapor/gas phase loosely bonded phase. thought that might be better than "taken away"

BTW: ICit2lol, an analogy within an anology... nice touch! No idea how this is relevant, but I'm tired, and maybe when I get my 2 hrs sleep and wake up for work, there will be someone making fun of me by then!

Okay...back to your thread now....

I'll try to think of something appropriate by then.

Oh I am just really impressed that everyone liked my a in an a and well the exothermic stuff I "gave it off" as I wanted to keep it real simple as I always use KIRSS as a general principle

Huh now I'm confused

That's mildly better, and I appreciate the effort!

(also is that a zebra without pajamas on? not speaking to anyone specific! )

Kill the HP welcome/poppup screen. It annoys me.
When I boot my computer, (a HP) , screen pops up, (picture of a hand and HP.) I don't want that. It annoys me. It is not necessary. I want to kill it. I don't want to hear how difficult it is, to remove. Merely, I want it not. mmm, someone must know how to get rid of it.
