    Poolside and JJ. I sure as hell hope y'all are keeping a running list of the malcontents. If they fuckup the next IICE products for me I am gonna be some kinda pissed.

    Thanks for your comments I²R, I appreciate your sincerity.

    This endeavor started out as a 'spare time' project. I figured I'd get to spend about 8 to 10 hours a week doing something I enjoy. You know, for fun instead of as a profession. Here we are some time later, and with any luck we'll be finished with the IICE Air orders and starting on the IICE Smooth in January.

    As you might have seen from recent update posts in the Vendors thread, I had a work-related issue which really waylaid my available time.


    p.s.: I can't figure out your moniker. 746 is the factor in the watts to horsepower conversion, but beyond that I'm drawing a blank.

    Heh heh. Not really, I don't consider them that way at all. (Alright maybe a couple of them were malcontents.) They want to know what's going on and I'm maybe a little sparse with personal responses and instead rely on the vendors thread for updates.

    What? Sounds like you're waiting for a vehicle accident or something.

    Just being silly. W=E*I=(I^2)R=(E^2)/R so then if 1 HP= 746W then (I^2)R/746=HP so then my user name is really "horsepower". I know, I know my family says the same thing about my sense of humor....:huh

    Anyways most people call me Jim because that's, uh, my real name. Ciao.

    Ok, you all have to promise that you didn't just see me miss the connection to ohms law.&#8194;:lol3&#8194;Seriously, I was looking at I^2R but was seeing PIR^2, and was trying to figure out how the area of a circle played into it.

    Ummm, where did the IICE Cool go?

    According to your own posts there were supposed to be three products, Air, Cool and Smooth.
    In March 2012 you estimated that the IICE Cool would start shipping by the summer 2012.
    Is the Smooth now ahead of Cool? Or did the Cool get abandoned?

    Hey there Mikko.

    All three products are still in the works. I'm sorry to insert the doubt as to which will be built first, the Cool or the Smooth. JJ and I discussed the topic more than a few times.

    What happens is we'll hit upon some design aspect to make one or the other function better, or be easier to install, or some other good reason to change the order of which product goes first. For example, one of us will come up with something that is so good that it must be considered. Then we have to think about out how to implement it, or whether it's possible to achieve and still keep it an easy-to-install type of device. That's mostly how our development process goes.

    I suppose when it comes right down to it, it sort of doesn't matter who's on first. What I mean is they can be installed in either order, and both do great things.

    I had the GS out for a hot run in the rain today. ICEE Aire is still shining bright.
