    I usually use ArcticSilver but good to know that I can use a dollop of mayo in a pinch!!

    Starvault's reponse to criticism related to having a handful of players as the official "test" team for a supposed MMO: "We've just have another 10ish folk kind enough to voulenteer added tot the test team" (SIC) This explains much about the state of the game :-)

    I go with arctic silver ceramique 2, but might give mayo a try next time

    A creative person is motivated by the desire to achieve, not the desire to beat others.

    I think I still have a tube of AS5 that's about 10 years old now that I still use. 

    I have used toothpaste in a pinch, I can confirm that one does work.

    Basically as long as you have anything in there filling in the microscopic gaps in the metal, but not so thick that it acts as an insulator, it's going to work.
