Now, I have some Artec Silver compound
No. No you don't. You have ARCTIC Silver.
As in "AntARCTICa" - as in "The Arctic".
Most pointedly to stupid Americans who call it the "Artic": it has an extra C which you fail to pronounce or spell.
"Artic" is an abbreviation of "articulated truck" and refers to a Semi and Trailer system.
Hey Mobius, Are you at it again :?: In this post Arctic was actually completely misspelled Artec. So it's not just that the "c" was missing, which is what you are b!tching about. By the way, there are two accepted pronunciations of the word Arctic. They are ärk'tĭk and är'tĭk, so get over it. I suggest that you seek professional help with your anger issues.
