I am such a techno-failure. The only option I seem to get when accessing the vermiculite database is to enter new data, where as I am hoping to find out where I can buy verminulite in southeastern Wisconsin.

Can anyone help me?

Hi,

If I understand your post correctly, you can't read the database without signing up for a google account? I looked at it anonymously and can't duplicate that.

Anybody else?

Just for grins, try reading the database here:

Well, I guess it's just me then. I tried it again, clicked on US db and got a screen for goodle docs that you have to have an account to enter. Oh well. I probably don't need it anyway - I was just curious. Am really looking for a location where I can get some wholesale for resale since it's so hard to find but apparently there aren't any close to me in NC.

Glad it's working for everyone else. It's all right.

Uh, gee, thanks. But I didn't do anything!

The link code I posted was the same as what the button links to. Nobody is supposed to need a google account to view or enter data from our button links.

Keep me informed, please, if it happens again. Since I can't duplicate it, can anybody post a screenshot showing 'the must join' window?

Bec, if you are anywhere near Spartanburg, SC, you can get vermiculite very reasonably from Palmetto Vermiculite in Woodruff, SC.

I'm seeing what you just posted ... I signed in using my google email address, and then I get a chat box that indicates "anonymous user 155" is viewing... for a minute, another anonymous viewer number was there, too.

I can access all the data. I didn't try entering into chat. Want to give that a try boffer?

There's no need to sign in when you're looking at the database. All you can do is look. The sign in is for managers of the database to fix errors, etc.

So, I went out yesterday and found vermiculite at one of the places posted on the database. Now I have price and size info that I'd like to add. I tried inserting it, but it wouldn't work.

Yesterday I was a techno-failure. Today, I'll call myself a techno-fraud! I tried, but no luck. Any tips?

When you go to the database, you should see four buttons
1: enter US data
2: view US data
3: enter international data
4: view international data

and one more button underneath to report problems.

Button 1 brings you to the fill-in form to add data to the DataBase
Button 2 shows you the DataBase for the US, sorted by state
Button 3 is the form for entering international data
Button 4 shows the international DataBase.

You SHOULD be able to access any of these through the main 'DataBase' link.

It may take a little while for entries to show up in the database.

I wonder if some people have difficulty based on what browser they are using. I have no problem with either FireFox or with IE. If you still have trouble, and can get to the HELP button on the page, or post underneath here. I know Boffer and Ward are trying to iron out all the glitches.

That will open a window that looks like this. Enter your data appropriately.
