    When you click "go advanced" there is a button near the bottom that says manage attachments. You can then click the little x button to get rid of them.

    Should point you in the right direction for future reference.

    Just to manage expectations (I can do corporate bollocks too) work has got a little bit busy with people expecting compounds and I'm just producing black goo. Therefore the graphs will be on hold for a little while.

    Chemistry - harder than it looks?

    Surely the black goo must contain some compounds. Just say that they are better than the ones they asked for.

    The other night Brian Cox taught me that "accidental black goo" equates to a new dye that will bring you fame and riches. Woo!

    My workplace was featured on that programme, I'm there right now.


    Black goo generally contains polymeric crap. Lots of different polymeric crap and we tend to need just one of the bits isolated and know what it is too. Working with other scientists they tend to like you to justify your reasoning so just making any old rubbish doesn't tend to work.

    Cmaster feel free to try the questions I've knocked up for the students we have here. Chemistry as easy as it looks grumble, grumble... p (Same with any specialised field).

    BSc in Nanotechnology, PhD in colloid science, so I'm familiar with chemistry, although my experience is largely of the physical chemistry of compounds that organic chemists give me.

    Well I think that's enough outside my bailiwick for me to have no idea about what you're on about if you got technical. I know a little about crystallisation - form and habit but not too much. Generally I make amorphous solids if I'm lucky. To go into detail about my current abject failure; I'm currently failing to hydrolyse an ester. Essentially this means I should give up my day job.

    I really enjoy blasting the shit out of digital enemy men with such educated people. It brings a real air of sophistication.

    To praise him? Because the alternative would be you dying 1 time and not remembering it. :P

    But yeah, we have a lot of academics in the outfit. I wonder if it has something to do with VS, with RPS, or if it's just a random coincidence?

    Yeah, the H-V45 really is my go-to gun. Use it almost exclusively for my medic.

    I should probably also aim a bit more often for headshots...

    It's probably RPS. A rule of not being a dick generally attracts more mature people, I guess. Some of those people will have attended university.

    I may be wrong not intimately knowing your playstyle but I'd expect you do quite a lot of idling i.e. not actively shooting your gun at men at people while running around etc. which will depress the HS/min stat.

    Ah, it's HS per minute? Got the idea that it was HS percentage. That would explain the graph then...

    Yeah but what's with the Ursa and the Nebula? Those were the surprises for me.

    The Nebula must be because of its spread and fire rate. SOME of the pellets are more or less bound to be headshots if you're spraying in close quarters, and if it's only counting occurrences per minute, that's got to skew the stats a bit. The Ursa is probably there because A) I've not been using it for very long, and only lately, and B) when I do, I tend to go more often for headshots, because of the extremely manageable and predictable recoil pattern.
