    Paradigmnoia is sticking to concrete details, some of which he himself has investigated empirically. You keep yourself limited to vague generalizations. I appreciate that the difference in persuasiveness in these two approaches may…

    IHFB,

    Well, by golly, if it is a fight you want, then a fight you will get! :) Good to see you back. Except for the snooty one, no one here tries to defend Rossi anymore. Can't blame them I guess.

    I will agree with you that there were some interesting…

    Right Roger, and it is no longer for sale. Even at a measly 500kw/COP80, buyers would flock to Doral with billions in hand to buy. Instead, Rossi decided it best to dismantle the prototype answer to the worlds energy needs, and take…

    He designed the cell to prevent entrainment. He ran blanks that showed the expected amount energy per gram of evaporation. He measured the salts left in the cell, showing that none escaped entrained. (Entrained water would carry…

    We have a number of validated occasions (Mats, NASA, multiple IH) where when presented with clear (and friendly) evidence of a technical problem Rossi has stormed off, refusing to engage with the truth, blaming others.

    There is a word…

    I hope that you are right and I am wrong, but history seems to say the probability is low.
    If there is one, it will likely not be accessible to independent investigators and not a
    "real demo" to the public.

    another prediction -any demo (when ever that might be- the original Oct date seems to be out of the question now) will not be "un-plugged" from the wall even if it is claimed to be self sustaining or with a COP that could easily be high enough to be…

    No, that is not what you said. But okay, you are saying it now. Let's reset the discussion.

    There as a large, heavy stainless steel cell in the bucket. It was hot. Too hot to touch. The thermocouple showed it was over 100 deg C…

    That's funny. But let's give the ITER people some credit. There is no question that today's tokamaks produce nuclear fusion. Theory predicts that a larger reactor will have some advantages and will be closer to a practical device.…

    the hidden wire is going to be a hot one....

    The place to look for a hidden wire is in the steam pipe with a ground through the plumbing.

    just another delay.

    5.7 torr (0.0075 atm) fair light vacuum. Good enough for glow discharges if the electrodes are spaced right.

    Yes, being good at electrochemistry does not make you good at calorimetric.

    Let me cite Morrison on that. Of all people. Proving that a stopped analog clock is right twice a day.

    I also cite McKubre.

    No, it does not depend on calibrations. It is an absolute method, meaning as soon as you know the flow…
