Gnomon - time to move on

I've changed the format of the Period Table extracts to Mass first, Number later on the Entries for Groups 1, 2, 11 and 12. Are there any more that you are aware of?

smiley - ta Gnomon.

I'll take a look at some point, but I'm still feeling too rough to do anything tooo mentally or physically strenuous.

Dunno if I've already told you, but the smiley - doctor diagnosed tonsillitis but, on top of this, I've got raw roof of mouth and gums and alternate shivering/sweating.

Odd thing is, when I'm sweating, I actually feel cold rather than hot. It's as though my clothing is stimulating the cold sensors in my skin, so my skin is hypersensitive.

I was up and about quite a bit yesterday but, this morning, I've been totally lethargic again.

Sun has come out now thougfh, and I've been watching Mrs Big Al prepare the hole for a replacemrntroating clothes line. I can't help because ANY exertion at all sets me coughing smiley - sadface

Hi BigAl. I've a question about a sentence in your entry on August Wilhelm von Hofmann (A38614656).

You say:

In 1952 it was taken over by the Society of German Chemists (and is now given to people internationally) who aren't chemists but have earned special merits for the field of chemistry.

Do you really mean that the Society of German Chemists consists of people who are not chemists but have earned special merits?

Or did you mean to say that it is awarded to people who are not chemists but have earned special merit?

Hallo Gnomon,

Just to let you know that I haven't forgotten/am not ignoring this. Just busy with marking coursework assignments, writing job applications etc etc. Also, been away from home for half-term holiday. I will get around to it.
