    I was a member at another website called "msn physics", but getting really fed up (it was mostly a dumpsite for damaged cookware). One of the other members was trying to help me understand commutaters (I thought they were a side-dish), when he told me he was leaving that site for good and going to a new site; this site. I checked it out and immediately fell in love.

    The new site and I are now very happy together and plan to stay together long-term.

    Yes the Groups on MSN are rather Slow and inactive.
    And PF(with no doubt) is best for Physics & other Science

    googled string theory (or was it superstring theory?), found superstringtheory.com, looked, was shocked (I mean, had these people ever DONE any physics?? some very notable exceptions, of course), someone (SelfAdjoint?) mentioned PF, gave it a try, ... and the rest is history.
