Re: FAQ - Extensive paper on neutron activation

Thanks. For some reason I (incorrectly) interpreted that "the book" was something coming from IAEA. I guess I was thinking along the lines of the Gamma-ray Spectrum Catalogs that can be had as pdf's from INL. (Although I tried a link I had saved today and it failed. Then, starting at the top of inl....

Re: FAQ - Extensive paper on neutron activation

Luke,

In your post of the Isotope Browser app, you said, "I still find myself referencing the physical book more." I did some looking around on
https://www.iaea.org/

but I didn't see a document or book that seemed to parallel the app. Can you share what you mean by "the physical book"?

Re: What about "Liquid Scintillation vs. Pancake GM"?

Perhaps the actual links make it more clear:

Re: MKS 901p

The LED action you describe is correct. You didn't actually tell us what pins on the 901p connector you are measuring for the analog. I have gotten three of these. They all have the 3-row 15-pin D connector (like VGA monitors use). I assume yours does too. I haven't seen one yet that wasn't set up t...

Re: MKS 901p vacuum gauges

A long time back, in another MKS 901p thread, a member was looking for serial software. I did some browsing for ideal software that ran on multiple platforms and had a way to save and call back canned communication strings. I found one I wasn't aware of before called ScriptCommunicator: https://sour...

Re: Book about Taylor Wilson is out

So I was flipping channels tonight and saw a teaser for the current episode of the weekly program "Vice" on HBO. I thought I recognized the interviewer in one segment, so I recorded the show. Title: "Printing Tomorrow and Are We Alone?" Haven't watched in detail but the second segment is largely abo...

Re: Inner grid size assessment

Richard,
I guess from the tone that you aren't too upset that it is out there in an obscure archive.

That #5 has some interesting pictures of old rad-related stuff. I assume the nerd picture was just generic and not actually you?

Re: Inner grid size assessment

Adding a bit more about that zip of PDFs related to IECF that I found. No idea who put it together or if there are any ownership issues on the documents. Here's the list of files in it: 1 ACT _ ESA - Advanced Propulsion Review IEC Thrusters 2 Critique of IEC Fusion Systems 1991 - 31763419-MIT 3 Deut...

Re: Inner grid size assessment

(Psst. --- Shssssh. --- Don't tell anyone.) I didn't expect much but tried my searching-foo and *Wow* had big success. Somehow I found myself to page with a big cache of IEC-Fusion document files. https://archive.org/details/IECFusionReactors At the top is a list of 31 documents and #11 is the book ...

Re: Sources for Fusor Related Items

Not related to the current posts about Deuterium, but a vacuum parts update. Earlier in this thread I mentioned AccuVac as a source for new vacuum plumbing parts. A couple months ago I looked for their web page and the seller ID they had on ebay. Both seem to be gone. I guess their business is anoth...
