    AWOL?

    What has happened to Chem Geek? I haven't seen any of his brain stretching posts in a couple of months! I miss his input.

    I hope all is well....

    Hes fine. He last signed in on TFP at 12:38 CDT today.
    I suppose he really hasn't seen much in the way of chemistry that he needed to chime in on.

    Im sure when things get busier though, we'll see him posting up.

    I had wondered as well...I hope he doesn't rest too long, there are a few up and comers that may have their sights set on the geek throne.

    Pretty sure he'd shy away from penny loafers. Might get some of that copper in the pool. Probably dime loafers!
