    You 'got' me?

    No Alan, you don't 'got' me. First off, your experiments are not being conducted in a F&P electrolysis cell setup as I understand it, so you wouldn't expect to see at the electrode under the electrolyte…

    You are right. I keep thinking there are lurkers who might benefit though. Probably just another sign of my insanity.

    That all repeat the same mistakes. Isn't it a definition of insanity to repeat the same thing over and over and expect a different result?

    And if we could believe they accurately measured this water volume number you might be right, except for the fact that the one time it was reported in the literature, they measure 7% more volume coming out than they were…

    By not working it out, you have stated something untrue.

    Recombination should be accounted for in the F&P calorimetric equation with a gamma coefficient in the P/(P*-P) term, but F&P and others drop this because they believe their…

    Not another, the same. And in case you forgot, it has the same characteristics as LENR, so your attempt to insult my proposed mechanism equally insults LENR as a 'ghostly' phenomenon.


    I do have a paper proposing ATER as the cause…

    Enough from me on xray film. I haven't found any of it compelling. Others do. So someone solve the issue by closing the loop on a LENR device and brewing a cup of tea with LENR-heated water...

    That statement has a couple of buried assumptions in it that I have pointed out many times. I believe the assumptions are incorrect. If someone could actually controllably reproduce the effect we might be able to prove that...…

    This is the truism that the CF community holds onto for dear life. It isn't necessarily true. Just think of 'anomalous excess heat' as non-electrochemical recombination, and realize that this is the very issue I bring out with…

    In a 'normal' F&P electrolysis-type cell, there is no ATER. I would speculate that means the measured temperature is good for all parts of the cell, which means in IR space, everything is uniform, i.e., nothing to distinguish…

    Yes but they were assuming only electrochemically driven recombination with dissolved oxygen was possible. That's one of the points about ATER. I assume bubbles can reach the other electrode, which negates the relevance of the…

    Agreed. But most of the xray film reports have the film positioned in the electrolyte right next to the electrode, so that leaves little room for dispersion over distance.

    Not hydrogen contamination, although one source of heat would be recombination of slowly released hydrogen, which is a characteristic of 'good' cold fusion Pd.

    The 'hypering' is a chemical sensitization of the light detecting…

    What has this to do with DC or the US DoS?

    Edit: Oh wait, I get it...

    Foggy Bottom was also the name of a line of beer by the Olde Heurich Brewing Company,

    But doesn't that go over in the FP's Experiment thread?

    As I posted here, FP's experiments discussion, the data follows the P/(P*-P) curve shape. Highly suggestive.

    BTW, what do you think a Optris camera is. Recall the 'dogbone' images? Film, which fogs with heat, would do the same thing. We're just digital these days.

    Also, they made IR sensitive film. Gave really cool images...
