    Here's a macbook warming up pizza :)

    I was converting a movie for my iphone with windows in mac, so you can guess it's using quite a bit of RAM and CPU, it's quite hot and the fan is blowing, so i didn't put this energy to waste - it actually did warm up the pizza.

    hhaha I wonder if you put it in foil or a napkin or something over it and laid the macbook on it, how warm it would get. I know sometimes I can't even put it on my legs or It'll burn me. haha

    Wow...

    That reminds me vaguely of how you're supposed to make your kids bake cookies in the car in the summer to show them how hot it gets and to stay out of the car so they don't bake.

    This is my favorite thread for the day. Although I can handle my pizza cold, it's sometimes even nicer that way the day after. :)

    Cold pizza is almost the best. Especially after a good nights drinking. Cold curry is number one though!

    warm, not hot. 20 minutes did the trick (as it took just over 20 minutes to convert the movie).

    I could concentrate/gather the energy a lot more by directing them with aluminium foil and also some beneath the pizza as well.

    That's funny, I only like my pizza hot when it is fresh. Reheated pizza is not that great at all. I do have to say that sometimes cold pizza can be a little dry.

    Works better if you put it in clamshell mode upsideown and put a good cpu load on.

    Thats what I was thinking.

    Who heats from the top? No one. That's who.

    Heat rises.

    afaik there's more heat beneath the laptop, ...snip argument...

    anyway - a laptop is not made exclusively to heat pizzas... :p

    lol awesome.

    If it were me, I would have put some tin foil in between or something, though! Wouldn't want pizza all over my laptop lol xD Would make greasy marks appear on my pants the next time I use it, haha.

    When you type "yes" in Terminal, how do you, uh, TURN IT OFF???:eek:

    (I can't get it off and my legs feel like pizza.)

    Try it yourself. ;)

    No, it actually spits out a continuous stream of "y"s. It's really fun, actually.

    I made an Applescript to run it on startup when my sister logs on, but I can't find it anywhere... Darn. :mad:
