Hello all,

New member from South Texas.
Interested in pyro since I was old enough to figure out matches and a lighter.

Now that I'm taking some college chem (pre-pharmacy requirements) everything makes more sense.

Since I am a poor broke college guy, I will be reading as much info as I can and slowly building up my collection of knowledge.

Since I live in an apartment and the wife has put her foot down on some of my more *ahem* problematic interests, I will have to be content with living vicariously through you guys until I get a little ranch somewhere.

Umm, names Jack.

Fairly young, although i don't do any of the "kewl" stuff kids my age usually do, I'm obsessed with saftey in pyro.

I fit into the "anarcho punk" genre, even when i try not to be, i have 2 loves in life; Government and pyro. Its an odd mix but I'm obsessed with using Anarchy as a transition period between what we have now to a Lazziur-Faire (I can't spell that).

I'm almost racist against racist, so expect me to go off if you discriminate against race OR sex.

Yeahhh. Cheers.

Would an admin or mod please contact me?

Edit in response to Sidewinder: I thought that this post would be as good an introduction to my persona as any - it shows willingness to contribute and addresses (in a civil manner) the fact that I can't get a response from Mumbles or Al. (Killing two birds with one stone, as they say.)

I have read the sticky in the Rules section; in fact, I read it long before I made a post on this board. There is no mention of the fact that posting a new topic is forbidden for those who have no posts. I surmised that it had something to do with keeping kewls from posting new threads, keeping spambots away, etc.

In summary, your post was not constructive in the least. :)

Let this addition to my post give you yet more incite into my character.

Edit #2: Fixed links.

Welcome to the forum, Enkidu, but this is a personal intro thread. Keep posts or replies on topic, please.

And just FYI, if you'd read the stickies about the rules you'd know why you can't just start posting right away after joining.

It's to prevent spam bots, and it's worked amazingly well! :D

If you sent me a PM I never got it. I looked through my last 3 months worth of them to find nothing. It's possible it was accidentally deleted if I thought I replied to you. If I did this I apologise. Please resend it.

To be fair, it is not explicity stated anywhere clearly about the no starting threads on the first post thing. It is buried in the "goodbye spammers" thread on the 4th page. Give the quantity of inquiries I get about this I am currently working on an FAQ, which clearly includes this. I may also edit the rules to say something to the same effect. Sidewinder, I believe you have access to the admin/mod section where you can see it. If not, let me know and I'll give you access.

As far as the info pool. It does not exist, and is unlikely to be reopened. It was a lot of hassle, and wasn't going along with the direction the board was evolving. There were other extenuating circumstances as well, but I won't go into them.
Just so you guys quit asking, here is the link to the old forum. http://www.xsorbit2....forum/index.cgi

Mumbles,

I don't have Admin Panel access on this forum. I'll PM you. I'd be happy to contribute up the FAQ.


Enkidu......

*shrug*

Your first post didn't say anything about who you ARE.

It said only what publications you had for the Info Pool. I didn't infer anything beyond that. And, the links you provided are corrupt. So there was no way for anyone to SEE if what you were offering were good publications (probable) or bad ones (possible, and there are a LOT of bad ones).

BTW, the links still don't work, you have 3 periods (...) in each link instead of correct path info.

And as regards the no-first-posting rule, I'll be sure and help Mumbles make the FAQ crystal clear on that issue, as well as others.

Back to the topic at-hand......

Oh, I forgot to introduce myself...

Soo, my name is Alexander, I'm 16 years old, Bulgarian. I've been practicing pyrotechnics for 6 months. My first steps were flash powder and smoke bombs, later I made black powder, fountains, rockets and salutes. Pyro is not principal hobby, I'm also in PC hardware, modding, video games, biking and others.

I prefer pyro than HE. What I like the most in pyro, is the bright fire :) ,

Hello all,
I'm a pyro from Sweden, I've always been fascinated by fire, but started making fireworks in earnest about a year ago (I'm 26). I've built sugar rockets and small shells. I've learned a lot, especially that I have a whole lot to learn :)
This seems to be one of the best pyro forums around, I've been lurking for a while and picked up tons of useful information, I'm un-lurking now because I think I can contribute to the forum.
