As for the Metal Society text being out of date, I will admit it's old.

I was not aware that there's a new type of silver compared to 50 years ago, -and that is not the best conductor of heat or electricity.
My apologies for not knowing that old knowledge is not worth knowing.

So , to my detractors, where's info refuting anything I've said. Please show me the error in my thinking. If Cu is a better conductor than Ag, surely there must be a link, so that we can correct Google, Wiki, the entire semiconductor industry and the American Society for Metals- which reminds me- in what latter edition of that voluminous text( It takes up 2 feet of my bookshelf) are the obviously incorrect properties of silver corrected and in which they hail Cu as the best conductor?.
