Topics I've Started

Wikis Thread

11 March 2006 - 09:55 PM

I came up with an idea a while back about having a user edited chemistry and pyrotechnics site, where the information was all user contributed. The purpose would obviously be to provide a place for information related to pyrotechnics and amateur chemistry to be stored. A lot of people all over the internet have a wide range of knowledge, and it would be nice to bring it all together under one roof, rather than being spread out over numerous sites and forums.

For this reason, I've put up a Wiki, that will revolve around amateur chemistry and pyrotechnics. Now, its pretty empty at the moment, as its only me who has worked on it. I'm not really looking to launch it properly just yet, I just want to get an idea of what people would think of such a site, if information would be added, and how many people would browse it.

So, opinions? Good idea, bad idea? Suggestions (e.g. sections)? Would you use it yourself? Is it easy or difficult to navigate? Would you consider contributing to it? Maybe something already exists?

I've posted this on a couple of other chemistry and pyrotechnics forums, and am asking for their opinions too. If the feedback is good, I might try to get it off the ground (obviously with the with help of everyone else).


Like I said, theres not much on there at the moment. I have a load of chemical pages on there, most without any information. The one that does have some info on though is the Potassium Nitrate page. Thats what I would hope the chemical pages would look like.

Thanks for any opinions


Searchable PFP Database

30 August 2004 - 02:53 PM

For a few weeks now, I have been working on a searchable PFP database. The program is now complete and ready to be used by people wishing to find all the formula's that they can make. Although only stars can be searched at the moment, there are plans to introduce other formulas and maybe some more formula databases.

Consider it a beta release at the moment, the source is a bit here and there which I will clean up in the next release. It should all work, it haven't had any problems with it so far, except for a few which made me want to drop kick my computer across the room but they are fixed now.

Its pretty simple to use, just select which chemicals you have in the list, then who's formula's you would like to search and then which category. You can select multiple creators and categories e.g. select all of them to see all stars that you can produce. Once done, click submit and hope there are some that you can use. I have tried my best when moving the formula's into the database to keep them accurate and correct but there maybe the odd mistake so I would recommend that you just check with the real PFP database ( http://come.to/pfp ) just to be safe. Also, no safety notes are provided, use common sense and like before, cross reference with the real PFP.

I have e-mailed Andy Krywonizka a few times asking if he minded me doing it but I got no reply. I assume he wont as other people have asked to have the PFP on their sites and he has replied yes

Here's the link:


I hope this thread is in the correct forum, its to do with special effects, enjoy


Uses of a cigarette rolling machine

02 March 2004 - 07:47 PM

Well, I know how Matt makes his spollette's and have heard that they are time consuming to make from various sources. I, like always, being interested in mass production, have come up with an easy and simple way to produce them. The method makes use of a cigarette rolling machine. These can be found all around the place like markets. I don't want to rewrite the guide as I have already made it for my site so I will just upload it to my picture hosting site. Look in the temporary directory for it.
