I'm in Orlando, at least until I am finished with school.
I am UCF CECS Class of '03
I'm at UCF too. It's gotten a lot bigger since 03. 56,000+ students now
I think it's the second largest school in the country.
You're out in Hawaii now? Looks like I picked the wrong major haha
I've been thinking about what everyone has said about using hose water first which makes sense. Since I'm going to use a a closed system with a pump (My IC doesn't have hose fittings) what I think I will do is have 2 coolers for water since I have a couple to use.
First I'll have my hose feeding water into 1 cooler where the pump is. Instead of having the out-flow hose going back into that cooler with hot water I'll just let it run out to the ground while the hose keeps supplying water. Then I'll have the other cooler full of ice-water. Once the temp drops far enough I can just take the pump out of the 1st cooler and put it in the ice-water cooler and put the outflow hose in there with it to start recirculating water.
That way I won't have to worry about getting a connection for a hose for my IC, and when its ready to switch to the ice water it will be quick and seamless.
