Hi Tom
Re: your email It is easy to support a good idea.

 

I'm interested in what you come up with on additive A. Some time ago I posted a message  on the board asking if anyone had tried it. Of course, nobody had but many posted irrelevant comments.

 

I too like to solve the problems, but more from the mechanical end than the chemical end. That  is a reason that I call myself the gizmo guy. Also being a welder helps me make strange gizmos to make pottery easier.

Tom,
That is quite impressive, both your series of posts and your proposed article. I cut and pasted it into one big wordprocessor document. You should have been a lab chemist. They love doing that kind of stuff.

 

When I was an  administrator for a large mental health research project at the University of South Florida, I developed a way of dealing with conflict in the very conflict prone organization.

 

I was In a position  that many people envied and thus was prone to attack on whatever I said, just from jealousy. When this happened I would think for a moment whether anything substantively worth fighting for was at stake or was the battle just over who was right. It was only an ego battle over being right I would typically just look at them and not even answer. I figured that I had offered what insight I could and if they did not find it useful that was okay. If there was something substantive to be gained in the battle, I would argue as hard as anybody else.

I suspect that they are good recipes. They were included with the glazechem glaze software.

Thanks for checking this. I have fixed the Raku link. Let me know if you find any other problems

Thanks for the input. I just rechecked the links and  I think they are right though the query strings are similar. After you download them let me know if there is a problem.
