    hi,
    Do you know how important is for us magneisum? It's a metal whict is include in every product or tool. The magnesium alloy is very helpful for our business.

    I really enjoy reading Magnesium.com. I look forward to accessing the
    monthly newsletter and I always find valuable information and resources
    in
    the newsletter, forum, marketplace and the daily news.

    Don't worry, he's been banned, but I thought this was one of the more amusing spam threads we've had lately, so I'll leave it for a bit before deleting it.

    That's what I thought too. I didn't think that metals had the necessary resources to spam. What's next, spam for milk?

    Is this about the C1? Shouldn't it be in the LF forum?

    Do you know how important it was for Chicago fire inspectors viewing Calumet found included in product C-1 camera magnesium? Found magnesium shavings on floor? Calumet say very helpful for business, but fire inspector say even more helpful for fire.

    Calumet enjoy magnesium but look forward more to aluminum and not burn building down.

    "magneisum" - "alominium"

    The standard of spelling for spammers gets worse and worse. I don't know, don't they teach kids anything at school these days? When I was at school they used to hang us by the toes if we spelt a word worng... oh bugger... Arrrrgggggggggg!


    Sorry... flashback...


    Actually, can we have a Spelling Monitor for thread titles? I don't mind the spelling in the posts, but bad spelling and poor grammar in the thread titles leaps out at me...

    Cheers, Bob.

    Banned? What a shame. I think he was well upon his way to becoming lighter than air.

    It fries well there too, just don't get the mag pan too hot. Otherwise, it's Lemans, 1955, all over again... http://members.aol.com/healeypics/lemans.html

    If I see minor misspellings in a serious thread title, I'll fix it.

    In this case I think I'll let it stand :tongue:

    (I prefer titanium myself)

    I'm sure if you contact him, he will be willing to sell you both peices that were recovered from the crash.

    What? No one willing to state they prefer silver?
    Is this turning into the digi forum or what?

    I remember an ad in a cycling mag peddling a product made with unobtainium.

    My favourite chemical is alludium fosdex - the shaving foam atom, as searched out by Duck Dodgers in the 23 1/2 century! in the Bugs Bunny and Road Runner movie.

    Magnolium... Funny, the cheapest and most common family (6000 series) of aluminum alloys are aluminum and magnesium. Sounds cool, though.

    At least he has chosen correct forum.
    Magnesium had been important for exposure in old days flash photography.

    I met a guy a few years back who had actually made his own flash powder and used it.

    Is he still alive???

    Flash powder is one or the most dangerous substances ever sold to the layman. Making it is even more dangerous!
