Trollbox

  • Director

    The condensed plasmoid page on the internet gives a good review of the history.

  • Director

    LenzandCoLab, I see you're online. Would you like to chat?

  • Director

    I doubt hardly anyone notices this chatbox.

  • Director

    Too bad we don't have weekly scheduled chats.

  • Director

    It would be exciting to see a dozen of us in here at once, or more.

  • Director

    I guess no one wants to talk.

  • Shane D.

    Director, Trollbox/Chat is not the best place to strike up a converation. If someone really wants to talk, they often do it in the threads. Trollbox has it's place though for certain purposes. If you want private conversations, you can use the Conversations funsction.

  • Director

    Thanks for the advice, Shane. I'm getting the idea that this isn't the best place for conversation. However, sometimes I think the flow of natural conversation can be more productive than back and forth posting on threads.

  • Shane D.

    Director, Well, they can see us here, like they see us on the threads. High everybody :) Oddly though, while Trollbox is on full display, few notice it. Like wearing an invisible cloak in public. You can walk around naked, do anything you want, and get away with it.

  • PhysicsForDummies

    In the trollbox I like to see jokes or completely superfluous topics like which island is best for lenrr

  • Alan Smith

    We have a 'Conversation' space where you can take your clothes off if that's what you need.

  • Alan Smith

    -And in front of an invited audience rather than all the members.

  • barty

    sure!

  • barty

    I just hope Alan, George and maybe this MacGuyver guy will get the ball rolling

  • bang99

    Egal wer, hauptsache es geht jetzt mal endlich voran! :-)

  • Director

    Care to chat barty?

  • nickec

    I believe a new thread makes sense for instrumentation building - ionization chambers, cloud chambers, geiger counters, etc. To reasonably expect, requires inspection. Measurement, in other words, is essential.

  • nickec

    I have found very low cost designs for muon detection, and other instruments. I believe I have the drafts of two posts on another computer. So hopefully the new thread will post soon.

  • nickec

    We need to implement multiple instruments to determine volume, timing, and direction of energetic particles. This assumes they manifest in some kinds of LENR.

  • nickec

    With more experimenters, which may result from a lowering of the economic bar, progress can ensue.

  • nickec

    Bye for now.

  • Shane D.

    nickec, You can start a new thread yourself. Sounds like a good idea to me based on what you have contributed already. Afterall, LF is mainly about replicators, so you guys are center stage. See what Alan says about it first though. I am the gossip guy, he is actually works for a living. :)

  • PhysicsForDummies

    Please start a thread nickec. I will try to understand and contribute if possible (especially

  • PhysicsForDummies

    If it requires software)

  • Alan Smith

    Yes nickec, start a new thread by all means- I will be glad to add what little I know.

  • bang99

    BABBLING: foolish or meaningless chatter (mega-babblers feels the walls close in at all)

  • Shane D.

    Bang, So now you know the meaning. LOLs. Maybe we should rename the Clearance thread: "Babble" in honor of. We always put the meaningless chatter there anyways, so it fits better.

  • bang99

    Go ahead... Make my day 😎

  • nickec

    Unsure I will add the following to a thread.

  • nickec

    I continue to work to replicate J5 results with a focus on low cost.

  • nickec

    Li source CR2032 battery. Ni from NiCad AA.

  • nickec

    Current for electrolysis from three dollar store batteries.

  • nickec

    Particle detection by cloud chamber and ionization chamber.

  • nickec

    CC is visual. IC is connected to DVM.

  • nickec

    Considering US coin, a nickel, which is cupronickel as another experiment anode.

  • nickec

    Coupled with a titanium spork and nickel plated alligator clips.

  • nickec

    This would possibly shed light on surface area questions.

  • nickec

    Need to procure or build a microgram scale. Found several approaches to do this.

  • Iklwa

    Nickec i don't think cost saving alone is a motivation for replication. Without diy the johnny.5 experiment can be prooved or disprooved for less than $150.

  • Iklwa

    I think the only reason people are not jumping on it is because of unanswered questions people don't want to

  • Iklwa

    Waist time . most diy take a like of time and effort

  • nickec

    Risk vs. Reward.

  • Shane D.

    The very real risks to your reputations for pursuing your belief in LENR, weighed against the remote chance of a reward? You have my respect.

  • nickec

    Fail quickly and often. Pivot.

  • Alan Smith

    Pivot Often sounds like a character in a Scandi-noir drama

  • bang99

    Itchy and Scratchy. Next season is online right now here on LF

    @Mods; @Admins: Why?

  • Alan Smith

    He just upped and left after an internal disagreement over our perceived lax moderation. He is welcome back any time.

    I wonder if these anedocdotes have the same origin. Do you have some experience with this kind of cells powered by a galvanostat? What could happen if there is a short inside the cell, possibly caused by the intense boiling?…

    Russ wanted to name them all after the Royals. I said at least some of them would be too wet and others too difficult to control, and they would all consume a disproportionate amount of our resources.

    Can you please give the dimensions of the glass container you used. From your instructions, we are to use 10 ml of electrolyte. That is less than 4 mm deep in the smallest glass jar I have available (6 cm dia x 9 cm high).
