    I would like to announce a new site to our Physics Forums Network. The site is physicsresource.com. As always it is a dynamic user built site. Our goal is for it to become a massive reference library. It is built very much like PF and it even uses the PF memberbase so you don't need to register since your already a member. Basicly you'll be able to post your favorite or interesting articles from around the web. People can discuss them and rate them accordingly. Again it's not a place for links to complete websites, but instead specific articles that can be discussed. Please check it out, submit a few links and I think you'll find it to be a great resource.

    Way to go Greg. Is there a centralized place to go to all these neat projects your cooking up. I would never have guessed that website existed if I didn't look under Announcements.

    One comment though - the font too small. I'm looking at the css file and it is mostly 8,9 pt font with the exception the of .medium and .large. Your forcing me to use zoom text under mozilla just to view the site without straining my eyes.

    I don't want to be a spoiler, since I've been here since the beginning and it has always been named 'Physics' forums.. but wouldn't a name change be appropriate to include all the other fields that are discussed besides physics just wonderin'

    GREAT going though! On the expansions!

    thanks dduardo,

    I'm thinking of putting a head bar on all three sites that connect to each other.

    Change the name and we mess our branding and search indexes up. anyway everything is a level of physics :smile:

    Yes, that is also what I figured

    WHEW! Glad to see that Greg imported all the articles we posted at "Physics Napster". I went to www.physicsnapster.com and nearly had a heart attack when I found it was gone.

    Greg-
    Did you really intend for this to be the only "live" link --- the pinned announcements at the head of each forum are ssssooooo dead.

    greg does it mean you will post the physicspost.com articles abstract in physicsresource.com instead of physicsforums.com?

    I'm not sure I understand you. :smile:

    Likely not.

    The link in the opening post of this thread is live; the links in your announcements at the tops of the individual forums are not; e.g., go to gen. phys., and try to connect to PR from the link in the announcement post pinned to the top of the forum.

    I think Greg forgot to click on "Automatically parse URLs". So, people have to copy and paste it into their browser's Address window.

    Yeah I don't know why it does that. but anyway, it's not too tough to copy and paste in or click on our network bar at the top
