    Thanks barty. I like to keep humor in the equation

  • Shane D.

    barty The forum is still very slow, with some timeouts, making it difficult to navigate. Is there anything we can do to fix?

  • barty

    yes, I'm ordering another server and will move it

  • Alan Smith

    good news!

  • Alan Smith

    Much much better today - have you migrated the system?

  • bang99

    Really running smooth now!

  • gerold.s

    Ja, LF Forum flutscht!

  • Shane D.

    Been quiet today. So much going on, there must be some opinions...yet crickets. Why?

  • Shane D.

    While the forum has been quiet today, LENR land has not. There is a disruption in the force. Sad really. No wonder the field has been stagnant.

  • Shane D.

    Look in the mirror, and you shall see where the problem lies. The science is solid, but the personalities are flawed and conflicted.

  • Shane D.

    Forum running slow again, so be patient.

  • Director

    The field is stagnant because of secrecy.

  • Director

    That's the number one issue that's prevent progress.

  • Director

    The second, of course, is funding and labor for experimentation.

  • Director

    Secrecy is the #1 problem keeping human civlilization from improving.

  • JedRothwell

    The problems caused by secrecy in technology are supposed to be solved with the patent system.

  • JedRothwell

    Unfortunately, patents have not been granted for cold fusion, so the system is not working.

  • JedRothwell

    The purpose of patents is spelled out in the U.S. Constitution: patents and copyrights are "to promote the progress of science and useful arts . . ."

  • JedRothwell

    Not to make inventors rich. That's not the purpose. When people patent an important technology and then refuse to manufacture it, the government

  • JedRothwell

    forces them to manufacture or license, because of explicit intent of the Constitution. Not manufacturing would not "promote progress."

    Atom ecology thread : Access denied. Any reason ?

  • Shane D.

    leDahu Sorry, legal threat forced us to disable. For now, A-E and it's owner, is taboo to discuss unless made public elsewhere. Weighing options.

  • Director

    HOLY COW!!!!

  • RobertBryant

    Ecology is busy at atom-ecology.russgeorge.net

  • rubycarat

    Can i say how much I love LENR-forum?

  • rubycarat

    I'm waiting for breakthrough, and waiting and waiting, and some people have waited 30 years

  • RobertBryant

    armenian proverb :lamb is in spring ..snow is in winter .. maybe by autumn in assisi?

  • rubycarat

    It's happening now, somewhere. And the power is increasing. There is hope.

  • rubycarat

    Heck-Melvin Miles had cold fusion in kitchen back in Ridgecrest!

  • rubycarat

    Cold fusion will change our mental imprint and we will be different people.

  • Alan Smith

    Thats what I hope too.

  • nickec

    When all costs nothing, will some still want more than others? Will we let them have it?

  • nickec

    I wonder what query might clarifty whether pointless avarice always expresses in the human genome?

  • Zeus46

    The US doesn’t have much in the way of privacy laws

  • Zeus46

    The UK does, but there’s several hurdles for the plaintiff to jump over

  • Alan Smith

    Well, it's not going to happen. Problem lies outside of the forum but we have no wish to make it worse. Bur all is well in the lab.

  • Promethian

    Silence before the storm?

  • Shane D.

    Red sky at night, sailor’s delight. Red sky in morning, sailor’s take warning. Does that make it clear?

  • Promethian

    Yes, but I like it when there are no clouds on the horizon. Clear blue skies.

  • Director

    I'm convinced we have more than enough know-how at this point to produce robust, powerful LENR reactors.

  • Director

    The problem is that there isn't enough labor to build and test them.

  • Director

    I'm convinced that a small team working on shifts 24 hours a day could produce fantastic results in a matter of several weeks to a few months.

  • Director

    The problem is that no such small team of people with the willingness and eagerness to run repeated tests exists.

  • Director

    And I don't see this changing anytime soon - especially when the people having success go secretive, repeatedly.

  • Director

    Humans are emotional creatures and the Rossi fiasco has done a great deal of harm.

  • Promethian

    No, the technology and know-how have spread into the financial interests of governments like China, India, Japan, US (military application), and others. I see the TRL progressing at an accelerated pace given this game theoretic scenario. Rossi will be forgotten, no doubt.

  • Promethian

    Anyone watching the HBO miniseries on Chernobyl? It's superb.

  • Promethian

    I suspect the actual leader in the field of LENR is Russia. However, due to their enormous untapped oil reserves along with well established nuclear industry, they have been averse towards the release of LENR technology. Time will tell.

  • Promethian

    Just saying what has been on everyone's mind in regards to why Russia hasn't released a working LENR devise. Ehh, "economics".

  • barty

    Is LENR dead or why it is so silent here?
