Searching


Well I was searching for information on google for Calcium nitrate and I was referred to BASF's site and the URL was curious so I dropped off the cano3 part and just entered sciencemadness. org on my address bar. I saw and I was HOOKED! By the way, if I want to put something in the library, how would this be done?

I honestly cannot remember! :o Maybe I should stay away from all that aluminum, lol. Though it was probably totse, a search, my bro, or I was looking for a chem discussion board. When I came, I didn't know about the bad connotation of "kitchen chemistry" :( so I was inititially quite confused. I really thought it was a catchy term for "home chemist".

I'm an old fellow from alt.engr.explosive and from roguesci. So it occured to Madscientist and Polverone I could be of some help here.
I did check out their site.
I found it very interesting to be able to speak with really chem and science addicted people :D .
So naturally I decided to help and from the begining this site has grown to maturity, not only by the number of members but also by the level of scientific discussion one can read or reach. :o:P:o;):o:P:o
It has had some troubleshootings in the first 6 monthes but nothing severe and always a link to the new place and good care/following of the members.
Owing to the good quality of the posts here and to a lack of time, I have quitted roguesci, but I keep an eye on alt.engr.explosive and chemistry related alt. newsgroups.

I wanted to make metallic sodium. So I did a search on Google and the MadScience forum came up. I found a fantastic thread on sodium making so was very impressed. I have been reading this forum for every waking moment for 2 days now. Resistered today as new member. I enjoy the wide range of expertise and balls-to-the-wall attitude.

I found this place by invitation when I used to frequent the E&W often. I liked this place so much better than the E&W that I stopped going there altogether, in favor of here.

I was curious as to how you make sodium metal so I did a search on Google which then led me to a thread on this board. I am now totally hooked to this forum :)

Polverone forced me.......


No, it was a misunderstood piece of humor posted by Polverone on the HIVE Couch which led me here. As I remember I was the only one who thought it being funny....except Polverone himself....LOL

Recruited by Polverone from rec.arts.pyro possibly due to my phosphorus explorations which ironically enough I really haven't written about.

The poll results arent visible. What the hell is the point of a poll that can't be seen? Now the chicken will die for this outrage!

And there will be a lot more people viewing this forum, a lot of the time I go to google and search for chemistry information, sciencemadness is usually on the first page, and sometimes the first result. We are quickly becoming the main public form for some of the more obscure information and manipulations expecially those dealing with inorganic chemistry.

I originally heard about MSDB from roguesci, when a member would post a link to a thread here. I signed up, but rarely came here, until i was reading a thread at roguesci about DPPP. I looked up phorone on google and ended up here again, since then, i havent been back to roguesci.

I like this board better becuase it focuses on the chemistry rather than the application of the materials.

How found ?


By searching for a specific user on RS who also happens to post here. Glad I found it !

P.S. HNO<sub>3</sub>, you give RS the thumbs down, but Megalomania's lab involving the
precursors is good. I hope he gets it running again.

I too found this forum through RS. I like how this place also discusses chemistry where as the E&W’s forum is strictly explosives and weapons. :)

Who started this forum???
