Failure, it’s not an option, it’s a career…

Supercritical drying of Batch #7 failed. Additionally, I almost broke the Open/Close Frame whilst decanting the xerogel particulates.

To top that off, I cold-burned the palm of my left hand, when fumbling in the dark and rain, trying to bleed off a few hundred PSI.

Good news – The autoclave easily dealt with 2300PSI. That was as high a pressure as I felt comfortable with.

Bad news – I need to perform the next batch perfectly, or i quit.

Hey, Y'all, I've been rather ill recently, and that has kinda deprived me of the ability to post regularly. I may or may not ever post regularly again. Thank you for playing.
