Re: microscope buying question

Hello, I think the microscope I had ordered and cancelled 2 weeks ago had all those requirements, can you confirm this?

Re: Windows 10

Dale, In issue 50 of the magazine, I reported about putting a CD ROM lens in front of an iPad camera. I did not glue it on. I would probably try to glue the lens to a microscope slide (on the side) using silicone and then somehow hold the slide in front of the camera. But the slide increases the dis...

Re: Windows 10

I am also running Windows 10, and generally am satisfied, but I experience some (driver ?) problems with my microscope camera. I do not know if this is Win 10 specific though. Specifically, the USB 3 microscope camera sometimes connects with USB 2 speed, and I have not figured out why. There is the ...

Private Massaging (PM) issues

Dear Forum Members, Several people had problems sending Private Messages (PM). 1. I updated the Forum software to the newest version yesterday. This was probably not the reason, but I mention it for sake of completion. 2. The maximum number of PM was limited to 100 messages. All further messages are...

Re: Deleting or editing topic in for sale forum

edit your post and include a line that says that the product has been sold. keep the original text for reference, but add a line. deleting of posts directly is not possible, as this would disruot the thread. oliver.

The forum settings are that you need 3 (three!) posts until you become a regular user and are allowed to post private messages. Does it work now for you?

Re: looking for science project ideas

Some more information about the onion plasmolysis experiment. This is a common demonstration experiment in schools. The experiment is educationally valuable for several reasons. 1. It shows that the cell itself actually does not shrink. The cell wall of the onion cells do stay the same and no not ca...

Re: looking for science project ideas

Hello, Long term observation projects are risky, if something goes wrong, then the whole data becomes useless and you wasted a lot of time. For a fourth grade student (primary school), you need a simple experiment that can be repeated easily and one which gives quick results and pictures which are v...

Re: Is there an annoying 'robo editor' of posts we may take more than four minutes to type out?!!

Hello, The posts disappearing could be due to the 1-hour inactivity session timeout of the forum. While you type your post, the forum thinks that you are inactive because no data is sent over the Internet to the server. The forum will therefore log you out after 1 hour. This is necessary, because ot...
