Quote:what surprises me is that just inches away from this discussion is a library of links to discussions, one of which links to several previous discussions regarding these prism types, and rather than go to those resources and read about it, it will, as is often the case, get rehashed here, again, for the umpteenth time. Oh well, such is life.edz

Quote:It will probably offend some, but it is meant to offend no one:Our little group can be likened to those who stir the pot of advanced calculus when they have yet to appreciate the taste of basic math. And sometimes the kindest answers can't be appreciated by those who don't know the basics. It may not be as warm and fuzzy as some would like, but in many disciplines it's simply the truth. I have certainly been there; and on many levels, I'm STILL there.Cheers,Bill
Quote:Watching what I say so no one will be offended--ESPECIALLY when No offense is meant:The acrhonyms are not to be used interchangebly. As Rush Limbaugh says, "words MEAN things."Bk, as in Bk7, means borosilicate CROWN glass.BaK, as in BaK4, means BARIUM LIGHT CROWN glass.Okay, stand by, I'm gonna get fresh:Despite the bull we see on this and other lists, one IS NOT BETTER than the other--just different.What many need to learn is that, at any point in time, hundreds of glass recipies are being produced. They are picked for their particular design properties.Cheers,Bill
