I sure wish garage chemist and Len1 would come out of early retirement. I worship these home chemists.

deltaH


Does anyone have contact details for deltaH? I want to ask some questions about a project he was undertaking. Unfortunately, my only contact was through these boards.

U2U me if you have anything to share.

I agree with Rosco that a number of cases are likely due to age catching up with members; that seems the most likely explanation for quicksilver's abrupt disappearance. I miss not_important. I don't know if he was old enough for that explanation to be most likely in his case.


i only opened this thread so i could spew out that i miss not_important. Glad someone else feels the same.

I miss myst, he had a great channel. He tended to sound a little down though. I assume Robert Bruce Thompson probably has a account on this, just doesn't want people pestering him so has it under a pseudonym.

He still is actively posting on http://labphoto.tumblr.com/

Since he seemed to mostly be here to share photos I can imagine him losing interest quickly. Chemistry is his job, not a hobby.

Is there any other way of contacting him? ( I already u2u'd and I don't want to make a tumblr account).I want to take part in his daily/weekly synthesis challenges-http://www.sciencemadness.org/talk/viewthread.php?tid=25540#...
also, what happened to chemosynthesis ?

Is anyone in touch with Panache? I sent him a parcel a month ago and it has just been "returned to sender".

Radium212: I recently discovered that Robert Bruce Thompson sadly passed away in January this year from heart complications.

JJay posted this in another thread. I thought it was better here.

I do, he's fine, just busy.



Also a rather sad update

If he has truly passed, someone needs to secure, curate and preserve Donald's archives ASAP. I have a post in whimsy regarding this as well, made about 5 minutes before I discovered this thread-


I'd begin to formulate some reply to many threads only to find he'd just said it.

Some or all of his estate including books was sold at auction Nov 4 of last year. Hopefully they found loving homes.

...a certain scene in About Schmidt comes to mind even so.

Mood: dealing with excessive change

[*] posted on 16-11-2018 at 13:28


I'm primarily concerned about Praxies (hope I spelled that correctly) tbh. He seems like the most concerning disappearance given the context of being in the middle of a very dangerous experiment and seemingly not having posted anything online since, coupled with the lack of knowledge of his fate.

The worst aspect of any investigation is the unknown. The only thing that scares me is what I don't know because that's what has consistently harmed me physically and mentally growing up.

if I do find anything, I absolutely will share it with you guys for at least to give closure. been trying to see what I can find. but since I must make assumptions, like doug being a shorthand for douglas, and having many blanks in his bio, it's super difficult to get any info in the person search or god for bid the obituaries.

I believe that Texium has direct contact with Praxychus and that he is ok: just busy.

He had plans to make his YT vids regular -- one per month. But he also bought a house and got married. Such things can easily make for a change in priorities and it is easy to see how a hobby can take a back seat.

He is missed: both here and on youtube. I too hope that he is ok, but am not overly worried. It would be nice if he would check in.

Perhaps Texium can add a couple of details if he knows anything that can be shared.

Doug is fine.

I'm sure we'll be seeing more from him here in the (hopefully near) future.

Anyone in contact with violet sin? It's been a while since his last activity.
I am guessing that work and a young family is keeping him busy.
