I had an albino leaped gecko for about eight years and my parents could never figure out why I loved that little guy. They're more into bunnies and chickens

Bunnies and chickens? In Boston?

I wish. My family lives in California, where they breed Holland Lops as a hobby

The bunnies sound fascinating. My mom used to raise rabbits when she was a kid.

 

I will be happy to get a place for my son and I where we can have animals again. We miss having them.

Gonna need transparent aluminum

 

I'm afraid that's not gonna be possible... Aluminium is a silver-white metal, no matter what you do to it.

You could, of course, give it another colour by mixing it with something else, but you can't make it transparent that way. The only way it could kind of become transparent is by making it very, very thin but that basically defeats any reason to use aluminium for whatever you're using it for (typically either isolation or because it's both light and strong).

But aluminium oxinitride isn't aluminium. There's oxygen and nitrogen in there. According to the article, it's only about a third aluminium.

 

Also a big difference: It's a ceramic, not a metal (like pure aluminium).

 

Looks like a pretty awesome material though.

That's why it's transparent aluminum.

 

Also, it's a joke and a Star Trek reference.

(Eats one of the welcome brownies. Still good and yummy.)

 

Hope everyone is good. Just curious if there is someone I should check in with about my acceptance here, and access to boards. In the meantime, I will try to be patient, and eat brownies.

    • Al'  has 2 meanings in this series. in the Borderlands, it means "Lord". in Two Rivers, it means "son of". Great Hunt mentioned that difference.  
    • about adam for men; Knife of Dreams revealed copies of the original. some chance that they had more than what was revealed.   edit::  like others posted, Randland would likely be united if the Seanchan were to come against them.
    • primary source for the Mary Poppins movies I take to be a set of books that are titled "Mary Poppins".  I do not remember the author.   I do not recall her killing anyone.     Light sided Aes Sedia can also kill; not just Black Ajah. main difference would be killing with the One Power.  Light sided, only when life is threatened; Black Ajah, any time.  
    • something else in the Starscape prologue::  Egwene wears a green scarf.  later in the books, she prefers the Green Ajah.
    • Thread resurrection!   4 years later and I'm still hooked to wotmud. While the game has a relatively steep learning curve, it's better than it has ever been! Starting a character is a breeze now. If you don't like your stats that you can see at level 3, you can use the command "tell guardian prerolledstats" and get a set of prefectly playable stats to start killing things (for all classes except male channeler). Recommended is best to start with a warrior, as those stats are good all the way through endgame. There's also a really good web client available now that even includes a map and ability to set up aliases, no downloading or setup required, just click and start playing!   https://writtenrealms.com/wot/
