You are evil. :)

1) Because most people on the list have no idea what that was, and probably=
thought you posted incorrectly and they were the only ones who couldn't re=
ad it... and thus skimmed right past it and didn't care.

2) Because *I* knew it was LaTeX, but I'm no physics/chem-head and had to g=
o searching to figure out what the equation was before I could move on.

2a) Because you can probably write LaTeX equations off the top of your head=
and I can't, which makes me jealous.

3) Because I still don't get it, as I don't know what the "coefficient of t=
hermal expansion people" say.

Oh, I missed that there were substitutions. Thanks for taking that extra e=

The computer programmer part of me cries out for reliable, standardized mat=
erials, reproducible formulae and consistency. But the wild, rebellious pa=
rt of me wants to say, "If Gerstley Borate gets cool results, supply and co=
nsistency be damned, use it while it's available." :)

Unfortunately for my pottery, the wild, rebellious part of me is very small=
and quiet. But it's rather handy in my job as a software developer and sy=
stems administrator.
