    Here's an image and a progress report for Feb. Getting there, but not cutting any corners on the cell hardware. The data system is also improving and is now stable enough to yield useful data. Can has been very helpful with some Python code for…

    Personally, I liked your idea when you first posted it. The approach of mechanically systemising the Pd application is a very good way of maximising the likelihood of replication. Of course, the Mizuno application method
    would need to be accurately…

    He is aware of the water contents. He suggested we include the document from the city of Sapporo. I said that seems like too much information, but then someone here dug it up, so I think I added it to the supplement.

    He does not…

    First calibration of Cell3 with H2 went well, other than a few data system issues. I included a calibration of the new Baratron instrument against the MKS convection (Pirani) gauge, which may be useful to other replicators. Images from the Optris camera…

    I followed with interest all the debates concerning these replications.
    From my point of view, the only relevant thing that I retain is the relative hardness dispersion of palladium.
    It should be understood that these samples are made by stretching. So…

    We have had a previous detailed discussion on this.
    Amongst various features which indicate a varied history for the rod, there is a 'droplet' which looks like a 'handle?' That would certainly make a difficult-to-grip rod much easier to handle. Said…

    Those appear to be numbers "by the book" . From the literature, Ni would typically be 300-800 MPa depending on the carbon content and heat treatment. The numbers for Pd also agree closely with what is given at

    Desireless : The best thing you can do is to run extended sets of calibration runs with varying pressure. The heat transport function of Hydrogen is highly non linear as it interacts with most metals. You could use a dummy iron…

    I am struggling with this. Maybe I am "missing something" too.

    How is this in any way relevant to anything?

    The fan is there to cause movement of air through the calorimeter. It does this by behaving like a compressor, causing a…

    Here is what you missed:

    All of these things are dead easy to check for.
    It is 100% obvious to every person who has ever used a flow calorimeter that you must check for these things.
    Every book about calorimetery written in last 100…

    Extensive testing with a variety of different reactors and resistance heaters, including bare resistance heaters, shows that my statement is correct. I am not making this stuff up. I am not speculating. I am telling you what the…

    Please explain what benefit might accrue from cheating. What motive would there be? It isn't as if people get funded or otherwise rewarded for reporting a positive cold fusion result. On the contrary, that usually leads to attacks.…

    I refer to support of the alegation of measuremente error/cheating. The interpretation of the results is open to debate, but this is questioning of the data and the intentions of the data.

    An insinuation of incorrect…

    Support your insinuations, or otherwise you are offering grounds for being banned.

    We don’t tolerate this kind of statements unless is factually supported.

    After a seemingly infinite time, the last UHV vacuum components arrived yesterday. So today I assembled the components (using nitrile gloves to minimize contamination) and began pumpdown. The setup is shown below. The two baratron controllers on the left…
