Using a torch to determine when a port opens can yield different no's when viewed by eye only. There are different ways that all work, torch, feeler strip, eye etc. Using a torch at the opposite side to your viewing can give the indication that a port is opening earlier than if you were to use a torch from the same side as your viewing. Personally I just eye every port as it opens and use a torch from the side I'm viewing. Sure a port may start to flow a tad before this but it gives baseline no's to work from for future reference. Some use a port map to set no's and I suppose when we quote no's, we should attach our method of measurement.
I was thinking the same thing. "torch" is what the people across the pond call a fashlight. I could just picture some knob reading this and using their oxy/ac on their PC. What a hoot that would be!
The questions we would get.
How do you keep the pc cool with the torch?
Should I shave the other eyebrow off so they grow back evenly?
Does anyone know if I can salvage this PC after I welded them together with my torch?
Come'on a torch it a battery powered light, its about time you guys caught up, the oxy/acet you refer to is not a torch, its a gas axe.
