Private Messaging Now Available on E-Cat World

There seems to be something of a community building within this site, and I thought it might be useful to provide the option for private messaging so users of this site can communicate with one another outside of the public comments section.

I have just installed a private messaging module, and in order to use the system to both send and receive messages you will need to be a registered user of the site. To register, go to the following link and choose the ‘register’ option: http://www.e-catworld.com/wp-admin

Private messaging is not to be abused. Do not use it for purposes of abusing, spamming, harassing or otherwise annoying other users, or using the service for illegal purposes. Please contact me to report any abuse of the private messaging system. Those abusing the system will have their user accounts deleted and be banned from posting on the site.

I hope this service will prove useful. Thanks to all for your interesting and useful contributions!

    I’ve registered! This should be an interesting system. Thanks, Frank.

    I should also report that a science journalist of my longstanding acquaintance with serious credits (Wired, Harpers, etc.) has been working for some weeks on a LENR article that will (if it has not already) appear in a major glossy science magazine. He has followed LENR developments with some interest, as I have, since about 2000, at which time serious reports of the replication the Pons/Fleischman effect started to circulate in ways that were difficult to avoid. I can’t say too much about the article (which I haven’t read) except that, I am told, it will focus more on theoretical and experimental aspects of LENR, not on Rossi or the current attempts at commercialization (this might change if events develop fast enough).

    Frank, you are doing a great job, using the latest technological innovations,to facilitate communication for the greater good. As we say on North Avenue, “you da’man.” 🙂

    ‘PowerCloth 1G’: Utah researchers develop ultra-light, flexible and foldable solar panel fabric
    Apart from being the cleanest and the greenest source of electricity, the other fascinating aspect of solar technology is that it is an off-grid source of electricity. In other words, every home can have its own solar power station without any need for power cables spread all over the country. “However, the electricity generated by solar panels installed in our homes cannot be used when we are away from home, biking, walking, boating or trekking on the mountains” said Exotic Solar’s Vice President and CBDO Vini Joseph. “An ultimate possibility in this regard is that if our apparels themselves become solar panel”.

    Japan demo shows electricity entering EV through tires
    (Phys.org) — Electric vehicles’ future continues to tease scientists to devise promising and practical ideas to keep these cars moving along the highways without having to pull over and wait for a battery recharge. Solutions for the so called “charging and range problem” took yet another twist this month when a Japanese university team demonstrated how electricity can be transmitted to a pair of tires through a four-inch-thick block of concrete, the type of concrete used on roads. The team took its demo to WTP (Wireless Technology Park) 2012, a trade show on wireless technologies, earlier this month in Yokohama.

    As a side note, E-Cat World admin, I think the large amount of new blog posts, as of late, is somewhat quenching ongoing discussions. Since in the main page it’s currently not possible to see how many messages each post has (so it’s not immediately apparent to see where hot discussions are, or if new messages get added), people generally tend to move on to the next post while older ones still have some activity.

    My suggestions:
    – Try not to write new posts too much frequently (for example more than 2-3 a day or more) unless relevant happenings occur.
    – Try checking if it’s possible to insert a comment counter for each post in the main page.

    • Ivan Mohorovicic

      BTW, it would also be interesting to see a stat counter to check which pages are more popular besides the number of comments.

    • barty

      what about a discussion board? phpbb or something else.

      it’s free and better structured then this comment section.
      And it’s as easy to install as the wordpress blog software.

      board.e-catworld.com or so 😉

      • Ivan Mohorovicic

        A discussion board would dilute the community in my opinion. It’s better to discuss where news are posted.

        • barty

          i think there are plugins available to connect phpbb and wordpress.
          after blogpost, there will be a refer link into a new thread in the board.

          it was just an idea, but i think it’s much more easier to follow the discussion, and even mor easier to search in the topics.

          • http://www.shake-speares-bible.com psi

            Ah…now there’s an idea. : )

  • georgehants

    Stephen, just like to thank you and Sanjeev and others for your time picking up great reports on Cold Fusion.

  • Stephen Taylor

    Sounds like a good feature. Thanks Frank.

    I was just going through the power point presentation highlighted in an earlier post by Sanjeev.

    pesn.com/2012/07/07/9602127_Jim_Dunns_Report_on_LENR_conference_in_Williamsburg/

    Slide 9 talks about Defkalion. Mr. Dunn indicates several important bits of seemingly new information.

    -Simpler design, 5 Reactors (vs. 9, orig)
    -5 to 25KW vs. 5 to 45KW – wide temp. coolant
    -Hyperion Launch Scheduled for August-possibly in US

    That last one really got my attention and left me wondering if Mr. Dunn has a bit of inside information. Other points on the slide are familiar but these three, and particularly the last seem new to me. Anyone else?
    In any case, as Sanjeev mentioned the PPT is worth checking out.

    • Stephen Taylor

      Sorry, that link doesn’t seem to work. This one should.

      From that page, it seems that Pop.Sci is also doing a 4000 words article on LENR. Isn’t it a pretty much mainstream publication?
