hello guys, is this a good place to ask for help?

@Ethan I guess you mean this question?
@MARamezani Good to have you back... Good luck on your exams!
@santiago It's always good when you answer any question, I often learn a lot from that myself. Go and leave your comfort zone, make friends among the unknown ;)
Btw. I have computer troubles at home, so I won't be able to chat after work hours :'(

@Martin-マーチン Chair...Reminds me of me...But I might change my conformation to boat. It's more unstable, so rarer.
@EthanHunt This is a great place to ask for help!
Just, please don't be a help vampire and engage in the discussion, please.

11:19 AM
Ah, @Ethan I took a look at your question.
It's a nice one.
The question gives me the feeling that you didn't wanna provide more info cuz you thought it might be noise.
But most of that info will be necessary for the answerer to give an accurate answer.

I like it when I occasionally manage to pick out small mistakes in data tables and then e-mail the correction to the source
I feel like I'm helping

3:57 PM
@NicolauSakerNeto That's a fun thing to do!

Hello M.A.Ramezani

Hullo!
How is everything doing?

All is well, and you?

MARRRRRRRRRAMEZANNNNNIIIIIIIIII!!!!! NICOLAU SAKER NETTTTTOOOOOOOO!!!!!! WHAT IS UPPPPPPPPPPPP?!

Fine, thanks!

4:00 PM
er, hello

Too much coffee, LordStryker

@LordStryker Those two are cool names to have! Whose are they?

But hello to you too

@NicolauSakerNeto #stay-hyped
#hype-train-2015

4:01 PM
YES!
This man gets it

I knew it

I'm happy that everyone's hypy.

:)
Nothing wrong with a little hype every now and then.
Choo-choo! Get aboard the #hype-train bound for Avogadro2-ville!
Paging Dr. Hutchinson! My body is ready.

Well, I'm typically happy, but am :| right now, since my dad makes me study for tomorrow's exam...For the 11th time.

Studying for the 11th time or taking it for the 11th time?
If its the latter, maybe your dad is a smart man. ;)
On a more serious note, what is the exam about?

4:07 PM
Physics.

Back in my day we used to spell it as "Fizziks"

I've learned so much of it from heart I think it's getting to my a@@.

Well it sounds as though you are going to nail this exam. That's a good thing!

I'm gonna eff it! :D
Well the hardest concepts in it are the easiest concepts of high school chem. Like heat exchange.

Ah the ol' heat-exchange-aroo.
@NicolauSakerNeto too much hype? :(

4:11 PM
Yeah...And all $Q = MC\Delta\Theta$ going over my head...
@LordStryker I think @Nicolau prefers watching with his eagle eyes...Spooky.

Does mathjax work in chat?

Well, you have to use the trick on chem's meta.

Don't mind me, I'm just eating some chocolate

@NicolauSakerNeto "Apparently, this user prefers to keep an air of mystery about them." Sounds scandalous.

4:14 PM
Haha, I just never bothered to fill it in

@M.A.Ramezani Hmm, doesn't work for me with Chrome.

What you really have to do is train yourself to parse LaTeX mentally

@NicolauSakerNeto Oh totally. I don't even see the code anymore.
All I see is derivative, integral, summation....

@M.A.Ramezani Martin's code worked.

4:16 PM
@NicolauSakerNeto You forgot ...with the mind eye
@LordStryker Yay!

Third eyes are overrated, I have four and can't say there's a real benefit

Well I don't have an eye...Chair cyclohexanes don't get eyes. :(

At least you can do the twist like no other
I can't believe I made a reference to a 60s song

And put a selfie as my avatar like no other.

4:50 PM
@NicolauSakerNeto: The big problem with Avogadro v2 is getting it to feature complete.
There were a lot of features in Avogadro v1. :-)

@GeoffHutchison Hullo!

My hope is that we'll get a fairly complete beta in Fall 2015 and a full release in early 2016.

I think you need to ping @Lord too.

BTW, this was a really cool question: chemistry.stackexchange.com/questions/32158/…

@GeoffHutchison I think it still is. :}
However I don't think the OP wants the answerer to dig that deep.

4:51 PM
I have been summoned?
@GeoffHutchison !!!
#HYPE-TRAIN
@GeoffHutchison Too much? You can totally tell me to tone it down some.

@LordStryker Yep. With the ritual of pinging by a sorcerer like me. Mwahahahahhha etc.

@LordStryker I don't think we need more hype for Avogadro v2. We need more coding.

:( Alright. I'll tell my boys to pack it up and go home.

I commented on that question
And hello Geoff

Cooler than liquid Nitrogen.
@LordStryker Don't worry dude. I think @Geoff wants to surprise you. I can tell that from his grinning face.

4:59 PM
Indeed that is a very nice answer.

With very big pictures.
That's a key to its success.
Oooh, we have exactly 8.5k questions!
I love round numbers.

@NicolauSakerNeto Thanks for the tip.. much, much better fit.
And a much easier thing to remember...

No problem, glad to be of use

@GeoffHutchison Oh my, too bad I can't upvote more than once. :(
Oh, a question guys: Do you think we should have a too-localized close reason?

What do you mean by "too localized?"

5:06 PM
For example, we close a question that says Is my calculation correct?
Sometimes, the answers to them are just a simple yes.

There's a meta topic about that specific case

Hmm...Just asking to see you guys' idea.
It might be the ultimate solution to the problem of having questions that are answered in comments.

@LordStryker BTW, thanks for the very detailed quantum numbers answer. That should hopefully solve lots of duplicate questions.

Man, I have to read actual papers, but spending time on Chem.SE is too fun

Now I'm left with this question: Should I wait till I get the Marshal badge and then get to 3k or should I get to 3k ASAP?

5:54 PM
@Martin-マーチン Oh shoot! You have 500 flags?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

1 hour later…
6:56 PM
@santiago I asked you about the news and you said there was nothing really interesting!
Hey, just between you and me, I would've liked to be hit by that homework vampire.
It's so fun to see someone insulting you in comments - Free flags!!!

7:08 PM
Seriously though, I really like to engage in a discussion fight that I know I'm gonna win.
Gosh...If I approve one more edit from @santiago, I'm gonna go nuts! XD

7:33 PM
I am almost at 2k, so you won't need to soon

Heh. But you're gonna kill me till you reach it!

you could look at recent answers...lol

BTW @santiago I didn't understand your comment back there.
What was it for?
To prove that it exists?

eh, don' remember

To prove that it doesn't exist?
:?

7:36 PM
tis gone now

@santiago I believe this is the Australian eh?

never noticed

Hehe...Nice way of putting it...Erase the body of the question.

huh?

I mean your deleting the comment nukes my question.
And my puzzled face.

7:38 PM
I was going to answer that one... but thought...nah

Congrats...You're starting to feel like me.
Shakes hands with @santiago

i am not convinced that i'll even reach 2k...lol

Oh BTW @santiago what's your nickname? @san? @sant?
@santy?
Typing and pronouncing @santiago takes a lot of time!
Oh hullo @Bon!
I think it's the first time I meet you here.
If so, welcome to the chatroom!

@M.A.Ramezani either way is fine

@santiago Heh...I asked cuz San is a girl name somewhere in the world... :D

7:42 PM
tis just a name

Ooooh, relaxed...I like that.
That's cuz you aren't gonna take a physics exam tomorrow, unlike some people I know.

nah, my stress is redirected

Like a dipole moment?

tripole in fact

Mercedes Benz, aha!

7:45 PM
wha?

The logo.
Or rather, if you want a more cheminerdic symbol, take the kekule structure of 2-methyl propane.

I can see blueberry, strawberry, melon and orange ice creams there...Yummy!

creepy

I wonder why Na is orange ice cream though.
@santiago Me? Yeah...

7:49 PM
lol

This is the smallest portion of my creepiness uniqueness, wait till I get some sleep and wake up tomorrow morning.

i may be at 2k by then

Speaking of sleep, I think I'll leave chem.SE alone for some mere hours.

gasp!

@santiago Dream on! XD
<pun intended>

7:52 PM
yeah, probably still around 1980's

Okay I'm off to sleep. Tatta!

enjoy!

@San I made you 2k. Now go and dream some for me!
Meh...Just wish me luck for the tomorrow's exam.

best and epic wishes for the exam tomorrow - knock it on its derriere!
and thank you

8:10 PM
Hello :D
Can someone help me understanding the following reaction ? A pyrolisis is involved, but the way it's written seems weird to me
For instance, how come we only have one Na in the last part ?
And why is pyrolisis needed ?
