Re: EMC2 news

So, correct me if I'm wrong, but reading the new patent, Polywell now: 1) does not need an electron-beam-injected potential well to operate, 2) requires a 2.5 meter radius core to generate just 90MW of fusion power even with D-T, and 3) has even less of a chance than before of burning aneutronic fue...

Re: Police State?

Here in Canada, we have a joke that goes like this: What's the biggest difference between Canada and the United States? In the States, the people hate the government. In Canada, the government hates the people.

Please don't follow our example. Safeguard your Constitution at all costs.

Re: We Are Exemt From Your Morality

This passage was quoted in "Elliott Wave Principle" by Robert Prechter. Briefly, his thesis is that human social mood is a patterned fractal, and that there are identifiable wave patterns at all degrees of trend, from minutes to centuries, most easily observable in the stock market price record.

I'm out. I'm not playing the game. I've already said that. And good luck if you think you have any control over what your own descendants do or think. How dare you claim ownership of your descendants. Your own children will merely tolerate you. You need to realize that. I wouldn't be surprised in t...

My understanding is that Tesla's broadcast power idea ws supposed to rely on "longitudinal" wave propogation, and is not not subject to EM inverse square law power limits. This would be great if it actually exists. Somwwhere I read that the technology of automatic door sensors uses some form of L-wa...

So does this mean that WB-7 was actually burning PB11 at some point, or are Dr. Nebel's statements about alpha channeling based on simulations informed by other experimental evidence? That would be a first, I believe, if a polywell were fusing aneutronic fuels.

Diversified Tech has some extremely interesting power supply designs using IGBTs that look like they would be right up our alley for Polywell open source development. Somewhere in one of their technical papers they mentioned a cost of $100/kw for production quantities.

C'mon, guys. If you're going to do serious CAD, you have to spend some money. It's just the way the world works. In my job I use IronCad, which is the cheapest "full-feature " CAD system I know of. It's also the fastest and most intuitive to use. It makes Solidworks and ProEngineer look ridiculous, ...
