    It seems to me that your conclusion that "IH ... stink to high heaven" could easily be based on a reading of events out of order, in which the timeline is not paid careful attention to. Up to now I have come away with a very…

    THH's conclusion is based upon analyses which are in this thread for you to go back and read and comment upon. The conclusion is either solid, or there's some holes in it. Perhaps you'll be willing to raise your own comments above…

    It seems people are depressingly easy to manipulate when hope is involved.

    Roger, perhaps you'll be willing to critique THH's conclusion about the upper bound on the power that can possibly be dissipated from the Doral warehouse by detailing the assumptions that go into the conclusion and then showing where they're wrong?

    No, they initially thought there might be excess, but they soon found out they were wrong. They found that even the blank, empty cells were producing a huge, spurious COP.

    You have been told that many times. By now, when you…

    So far (and the experiment will soon be coming to a close), there is no excess heat. The calibration and repeatability seem spot on. The COPs are coming out within about 0.2% of 1.000. This is about the residual in the calibration curve. I believe…

    Abd has obtained transcripts 48, 84, 97 and 106, now available on his site and copied onto the Google Drive (you'll probably want to sort by "Last modifed" to see them).

    I might guess that you view the existence of this "blatant inconsistency" with the same certitude that you had when you and the child saw that there was no glass in the window.

    In order to hope to sort out a coherent account, whatever it is, it is very important to keep the timeline in mind, as there was clearly an evolution in thinking over time, surely for the IH principals, and possibly for Rossi as…

    Nope. Not a stretch at all. They then started keeping track of events, started finding real experts, and eventually sent stuff off to Boeing for more precise testing. And they gave Rossi all the rope he asked for, to see this story…

    I am starting a new automated experiment - beginning now. There was a little bit of a false start as pressure began increasing, but was programmed to be low. Found that I had unplugged the pressure control solenoid. Now plugged in and the pressure is…

    Sig - yes controlled experiments are the way to go. A good test should have a control running in parallel if possible. There should be calibration runs before and after the experiments. First to check the instruments and later to show that nothing…

    Well, illusory results can never be excluded, but multiple truly independent controlled tests are orders of magnitude more convincing (and nearly impossible to 'fake'). Oldguy makes a valid point that it's very easy to 'get' an…

    Following the emissivity recommendations in the camera's manual would have got them 90% of the way there.

    Levi went well off-piste.

    Roger,

    Are you aware of the false use of IR cameras that Levi/Rossi promoted and was exposed only after months of re-analysis of the Lugano data?

    Levi, as far as I know, is still promoting it.

    How are IH supposed to detect this…

    Josh - for most of us it is not surprising that IH had suspicions about Rossi, were VERY suspicious of test. They'd have to be stupid not to be so. If you read all the letters now public it is pretty clear:

    The conflation of Rossi with LENR as a whole is undoubtedly the most damaging thing about his activities. Of course, a good chunk of the so-called LENR community got involved with the topic because of Rossi and this is most unfortunate. Personally, I…
