Anything happen post-announcement?

I know I'm being impatient but wondering if EMC2 has received the Navy's funds yet, if they have a lab (New Mexico?), etc.

MSimon posted the news on his blog:-
(Thursday, August 23, 2007)
It is confirmed by Tom Ligon in this post:-
but since then there has been no further public news that I am aware of.
I also would like to hear some confirmatory news ...

As soon as I am able to confirm this from public sources I will do a post.
Dr. B is working.

So correct me if im wrong but basically because the navy reintroduced their funding, that put EMC2 back under a non disclosure immediately. Therefore they cant even disclose they fact they got funded ?
It seems to me that the powers that be are either
1. Intentionally crippling the advancement of polywell for economic reasons
2. Slowly realizing they have let the best thing since the Manhattan project leak out on the internet. And from now its top secret, full steam.

Conspiracy, I think not.

Any hints that he's at least received more staff and better lab facilities?

As I understand it he has a minimal budget to complete WB-7. This should not be a handicap since WB-7 is a repeat of WB-6 with improvements.
That should be satisfactory since many of us are training ourselves to be in readiness to join the project. I would give my left nut to be asked to help. I have heard similar sentiments from others.
I have heard a lot of folks say that they would be willing to work on this for well below the going rate since they see the value of the project. Dr. B. (or the Navy) will have a good selection of people to choose from.
BTW the rate of interest is growing. I'm getting e-mails from engineers and scientists at the rate of about one every week. Three months ago it was one a month or less.
From hints and rumors I have heard I expect that Congress will Manhattanize the project if WB-7 tests are successful.
