this thread is slightly confusing

I'd like the TLDR version/cliff notes if available

:unsure:


if the pilot's good, see, I mean, if he's really..sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low [he spreads his arms like wings and laughs],

you oughtta see it sometime, it's a sight. A big plane like a '52. VRROOM! There's jet exhaust, fryin' chickens in the barnyard.

People gave their opinions on bombers. Prenzlau thinks he's better than everyone and says so. Catfight ensues .

But a truce to this mournful story

For death is a distant friend

So here's to a life of glory

And a laurel to crown each end

thank you... besides being an ok bomber pilot

he's a heck of a good fisherman

Not real sure myself and I may have instigated it. I am sure it was after a night of flying that I posted so more than likely I was flying high with out any transportation :teethhappy:

 

Pretty sure I only meant to express my own opinion of flying bombers personally, not directly at any pilot class.

 

Now that RBL has it's own aspiring Bomber pilot, I look forward to tweaking my hangar for cover and perhaps gain a new respect for the class.

I will toss this out there for booze:

Conversation about what bomber pilots want for help, how to cover, clean sectors, planes etc. Perhaps another thread or....???

Probably so.  I was just wondering what line does what best, which one to pursue.  The rest I THINK others brought in.  I don't mind, learning lOADS.

    I was going through the posts in the WoWp discord the other night. Out of sheer curiosity I typed a search for "Prenzlau" and "Prenz" just to see if anyone might have been commenting. I received more hits than I expected. I also was somewhat surprised when the vast majority of those comments were from SpiritFox. All comments taken from the discord, nothing made up.

 

01/08 SpiritFox wrote: Gee, I feel like The Prenz is deliberately singling me out XD

 

Well tough ****. If he has a problem with my videos, he should go make some himself

 

he's basically *****ing on everyone who contributed. I guess he needs to feel superior

 

Who? If its Prenz, do share it with me XD

 

But yeah. No need to get toxic. His brilliant advice on the forums is honestly about as useful saying the sky is blue

 

01/08 SpiritFox wrote: He doesn't fly dive bombers

 

He's an orbital bombardment platform

 

There's a reason I don't bother to take a crack at him

 

And like the Cap'n said - no one has ever been thought his "advanced tactics"

 

Not that I know of anyway. Certainly no one has learnt them because even his own OWSS pilots don't fly like he does

 

(Or as well as he does, let's be fair)

Doesn't help that I usually fly low-alt

 

And it seems I'm fated to be flying low-alt when facing him

Extremely manipulative as well.

12/31 SpiritFox wrote: I just want ONE GAME where I'm in a Lightning or 410 or other Heavy when I face him

 

12/31 SpiritFox wrote: I generally treat everyone the same but there are a few I truly respect and a few I would go out of my way to be an ***hole to.

 

12/31 Reitousair wrote: It's actually better if I'm opposing my clanmates.

 

Because matches usually last long enough to do something

 

We coordinated with each other so that we wouldn't run into each other.

 

They got to farm kills while me and my mate nuked the plants and basically everything but them.

 

That was one of the very few times where the match-up was SO bad that rather than just avoidance, we actually coordinated to try and let the obvious losers have some semblance of a decent match.

  I don't have the time or the patience to really scour the discord for comments. I really would like to point out a few things in all fairness.
 
1. Who I am in this forum and in the game is not who I am in reality, and that could be applied to most players.
2. If anyone wants a nice dose of toxicity, just read through the WoWp discord. It is ironic that I get accused of so many things, and yet people can freely talk about me, say things about me, and that is ok, right? It is a free world. Yet when I speak, I get banned. When I share my opinion I get criticized and then I get banned.
3. The self-righteousness of some people having double standards is obvious and in the open. Yet there are different rules for Prenzlau. How come?
4. SpritFox you in particular seem to be haunted by me and yet I don't ever believe I ever did anything intentionally to you, other than maybe a comment you did not like. You prejudge me without really knowing me and you have a lot of negative things to say. Maybe you should fly a few battles with me and then form an opinion? I'm offering.
5. Apparently the WoWp forum and the WoWp discord have different rules. How come?
6. If I can do what I say and then say what I did, somehow that is a crime and it's too much hubris. A boast is factless assertion, however a factual statement is the truth. That said, it is apparent that a person cannot speak a truth, even when that truth does not violate any rules, because truth is subjective for some people.
7. When it comes right down to it, I've been vilified for who I am. I'm held to a different standard and maybe that is some form of universal justice in the end, but it was never my true wish. People hate and dislike me for all the wrong reasons.
8. I've made efforts, to make peace with some, offer friendships to others, apologies etc. I've contributed content with the community in mind, most of my threads have been constructive to start with. All the positives really do get over looked. People can stand on their own soap boxes and point fingers at me, but I could easily say, "what have you done to make anything any better"?
9. The reason I posted the comments from the WoWp discord is to show that some of the people who accuse me of being "toxic" in essence they do the same thing, and to be honest it is hard to respect people when they say and act one way under the pretense of some righteous attitude and then turn around and talk about others in a critical way.
10. It gets tiring. If I indeed have had too much hubris and arrogance it has not been solely self generating, but it has been fed by those around me. You all have had your part in creating Prenzlau Tyrannus, but no wants to take any responsibility for their actions, for their words. Instead I get to be the forum villain so things can be better defined for those who have trouble holding a complex thought. Do you really have to hate someone you do not truly understand?
 
I'm not going to reply any further.
 
Prenzlau Tyrannus
 
 
 
 

 

When you set out to hijack a thread, you don't stop at a couple hundred words when 2000 will do.

Spray foam is a chemical product created by two materials, isocyanate and polyol resin, which react when mixed with each other and expand up to 30-60 times its liquid volume after it is sprayed in place. This expansion makes it useful as a specialty packing material which forms to the shape of the product being packaged and produces a high thermal insulating value with virtually no air infiltration.

History

Otto Bayer (1902-1982) is credited with the invention of polyurethane in 1937. He succeeded in synthesizing polyurethane foam by exploring his basic idea that mixing small volumes of chemical substances could create dry foam materials.[1]

Polyurethane was further developed for different applications, ranging from shoe soles and cushions to industrial uses. In the 1940s rigid foam was applied to airplanes,[2] and in 1979 polyurethane began being used as building insulation.[3]

Properties

Thermal resistance

R-value is the term given to thermal resistance to heat flow. The higher the R-value of an insulation product, the more effective the insulation properties. Spray polyurethane foam comes in a range of densities and cel structure. Low density foams are referred to as Open Cel SPF while higher density foams are referred to as Closed Cel foam. 1.8-2 pound polyurethane foam has the highest R-value of readily available spray foam insulation used in homes and buildings.[4]

Polyurethane is a closed-cell foam insulation material that initially contains a low-conductivity gas in its cells.[5] As a result of the high thermal resistance of the gas, spray polyurethane insulation typically has an initial R-value around R-3.4 to R-6.7 per inch.[5] In comparison, blown fiberglass typically has an R-Value of only R-3 to R-4 per inch.[6]

Foam insulation blocks all three forms of heat transfer:

Conductive heat transfer
The flow of thermal energy through a substance from a higher to a lower temperature region. Foam thermoset plastics reduce conductive heat transfer due in part to having very loose molecular bonds; In addition the cells of the installed spray foam are either filled with air in the case of open cell foam or 245fa in closed cell foam.
Radiant heat transfer
The process by which heat energy in the form of light (usually IR unless the substrate is hot enough to glow in the visible range) is emitted more strongly by warm surfaces and absorbed by other materials especially those of low IR reflectivity (think matte black finish). Radiant heat transfer does not require a medium. Foam insulation materials, such as spray foam insulation, are opaque to thermal radiation, like most solid materials.
Convective heat transfer
Heat which is created elsewhere that is transported by means of a fluid, such as water or in our case air. Spray foam insulation's most important attribute is the ability to air seal creating a custom airtight envelope within the building structure. The added benefit to air sealing is the ability to block convective heat transfer from interior to exterior during heating months and vice versa during cooling months, as the heat cannot escape through gaps in the buildings envelope without the aid of air movement from infiltration as a means of transport.

Applications

Packaging applications

Spray foam is a very specialized packing material, often required for use in shipping valuable fragile items. Engineered packaging principles are designed to protect sculptures, vases, large fossils, lamp bases, busts, computers, furniture, chandeliers and other objects of unusual shape. By virtue of the liquid foam expanding by up to 30-60 times the volume of its liquid state, it efficiently protects almost any size, form and weight.

The custom fit of the molds, top and bottom, securely and uniformly cushions the object. There are many types of alternative materials that can be used to handle more specific needs.

Building applications

 
Walltite insulation foam being sprayed
 
Closed cell spray foam being applied by trained installer.

Spray foam insulation or spray polyurethane foam (SPF) is an alternative to traditional building insulation such as fiberglass. A two-component mixture composed of isocyanate and polyol resin comes together at the tip of a gun, and forms an expanding foam that is sprayed onto roof tiles, concrete slabs, into wall cavities, or through holes drilled in into a cavity of a finished wall.

"Spray foam" is also an informal term used to refer to various plastic foam materials that are used in building construction to provide thermal insulation and minimize air infiltration. Polyurethane and polyisocyanurate are two types of foam used in this application.

Types

Spray polyurethane foam (SPF) insulation can be categorized into two different types: light-density open-cell spray foam insulation and medium-density closed-cell spray foam insulation. Both types of SPF are thermoset cellular plastics comprising millions of small cells.[7]

 
Open cell spray polyurethane foam insulation being applied in wall cavities.

Open cell insulation can be crushed in your hand and has a lower insulation value. Closed cell is rigid to the touch and each air cell is completely sealed. While closed cell foam has a higher R-value, it is more costly to buy.[8]

Medium-Density Closed-Cell Spray Foam (ccSPF)

Medium-density closed-cell foam insulation is often referred to as two pound (2 lb) foam. It is a rigid insulating material with a Long Term Thermal Resistance (LTTR) R-value that ranges between 5.1 - 6 per inch[9] When the required minimum thickness of 50 mm is installed, ccSPF is both a vapour barrier and an air barrier.

In Canada, the National Building Code references two standards that apply to the manufacturing and installation of ccSPF: the CAN/ULC S705.1 Material Standard and the CAN/ULC S705.2 National Application Standard. The installation standard requires that all installers of ccSPF in Canada be licensed and carry a photo ID card.[10]

Typically the foam's natural colour is yellow, however in Canada all ccSPF that have CCMC listings are required to have a unique colour for field identification.[11]

Light-Density Open-Cell Spray Foam (ocSPF)

Light-density open-cell SPF is commonly known as half-pound foam. It is a semi-rigid material with a sponge-like appearance that expands during installation and creates small, open cells that are filled with carbon dioxide. Due to its ability to expand during the application process, it fills cracks, crevices and voids and adheres to irregular surfaces or substrates to form an air sealing insulation.[12]

While the R value will vary, most ocSPF products have an R value of around 3.8 per inch. Unlike medium-density closed-cell SPF, ocSPF is not a vapour barrier. When installed at 5.5 inches or more, ocSPF does act as an air barrier. It is often used for interior walls because it provides sound reduction by blocking and absorbing air leakage. It is usually only recommended for indoor applications.

are we suppose to put up a wall of text in this thread?
