I am not getting near the number of people signing
the petition as I would like. I am currently investigating other means
of advertising. The target audience for this advertising would be
engineers and scientists, specifically Mechanical, Civil, and Electrical
Engineers; Physicists and Chemists. My question is what publications
would give the most bang for the buck?

Yes I have, hppc.org even has a link to my site. I have told every group that is interested in things like that I can find. The problem is most people while they find the calculator very useful, aren't fanatical enough to search out forums like that.

The numerous and obnoxious repetitions of your original post probably didn't help your case (or your credibility).
