I may be missing something completely (likely the case) but I cannot for the life of me get the wand focus of celestial recall to work for me.
After crafting it I enchanted it with frugal and not knowing if I needed it for range, potency. With it on a mostly charged ichor wand with ichor caps and a bound celestial pearl to a nearby gateway in my hotbar I right click, even hold right click, and get nothing. No animation, just sit there stupidly holding a wand with a cool crystal on it in my hand.
I run a personally modded server that has quite a few mods on it and can give you a full list if you want. I am sure that I may be doing something wrong as its late and I am tired. Did I break it by enchanting it? (nope, gave me one in creative and it still does nothing.) Am I missing what a properly bound celestial pearl is? The other gateways I have connect to each other and work as intended through the binding process.

After installing Thaumic Exploration 0.3.0 I noticed that all the Kami research I've discovered is greyed out in the Thaum-con, with the text "missing required research" when moused over. I can still click on them and read the descriptions/recipes, though I'm not sure if I can still craft them as I haven't tried yet. Googlefu and a forum search didn't show anyone else with this issue.
Wild idea that I'm pretty sure you've already heard plenty of times:
Would it be possible to add a config option to turn off impossible research? You did make a (really) easy mode for the research after all, so I guess it wouldn't hurt to ask.
