    No Prob.
    I actually like you.

    Hang in there, because you do raise points that can be read about,
    through to most peoples logical conclusion.

    But please remember.
    Pro IH <> anti LENR
    and more importantly, Anti Rossi <> Anti LENR.

    I do not think I.H. was convinced by Rossi's crude experiments. My understanding is that they were mainly convinced by Levi's experiments. These were less crude. More professional. The first one was impressive. I still think it…

    but real scientists are kids, and pre-school kids are good scientists.

    Sadly, psychology doesnt work like that, the successful psychopath will do everything in their power to "save face" often manipulating to the extent where they are not prosecutable at all, you grossly misunderstand what a psychopath…

    Yes. What was with that? Did he actually expect to fool anyone with such a weird claim? Ditto the invisible heat exchanger in the mezzanine. Apart from IH Fanboy and a few other people on Planet…

    I have experience working as an Engineer (over a decade). Rossi has demonstrated that he DEFINITELY DOES NOT have good engineering skills in any traditional sense. This may boil down to semantics, because I think what you are more…

    I agree... this is key to his popularity. this is why his claims looks credible sometime, because they are simply what people, and sometime rational people, expects.

    I think there is a mental disease not far, where someone…

    Fabiani worked with him for years and yet at the end Rossi just got mad at him and threw his computer and other things out into the parking lot. That says a lot about the guy.... and then there is that Elvis toupee.

    Mats book is one side of the story. I've read both. In detail. And while Mats writes well, he is irredeemably biased. He treats RossiSays as true, unless obviously contradicted. One thing we know beyond doubt now is Rossi's…

    I don't excuse the behavior at all, but this common behavior for VC funded startups in San Francisco and Silicon Valley, for example. Sort of a hand-wavy combination of great optimism together with trying to keep expectations…

    That contradicts just about everything I've seen on the docket. I see IH doing triple back-flips trying to get anything working from Rossi.

    IH would have been thrilled to have any excess power, based on docket evidence and common…

    Yes, that is about what I heard.
    The problems could have been addressed and fixed.

    Ok - so amend that to: And as we see here anything short of a full victory for IH (possibly even that) can be spun to support part of Rossi's narrative....

    That does not prove the e-cat does not work. It proves that a test protocol Rossi and Fabiani were using did not work, and that one specific e-cat they were given did not work during that test. Do they extrapolate from that to…

    This board uses a lot of us verses them psychology. The assumption is that one side must be good and the other side evil. Instead we need to view each side as people. Now people frequently are not logical or rational in their thinking nor are they…

    How was this debunked?
    The Lugano result indeed does not need an input power mismeasurement, given the favorable errors achievable with a wrong emissivity setting.
    But there still is the unexplained 6:1 ratio of "Joule heating"…
