I am not sure what any of this means, but Italian blogger Daniele Passerini of the 22passi.blogspot.com web site has posted some some cropped images on his web site today which are hard to decipher, along with this rather cryptic statement (cryptic, that is, when translated by Google: Thanks to reader Hammerskoj for a correction):
NOTICE BOARD: I smile, because few worldwide known the image proudly displaying right now on my desktop, but is designed to show the white mice to many diehard enemies of historic cold fusion!
Original Italian: SORRIDO: perché l’immagine che da oggi fa bella mostra di sé sul mio desktop, la conosciamo in pochi al mondo, ma è destinata a far vedere i sorci verdi a tanti irriducibili nemici storici della fusione fredda!
To me, the images seem to be from some kind of graphic which includes text, but they are so small that it’s impossible to construct a larger picture from them. I have noticed that there have been some posts here lately saying that good news will be released on July 23 (Monday) in connection with the ecat and Italy, but I have not been able to get any more information about what that might be. Passerini is in Bologna and is close to Guiseppe Levi and others at the University of Bologna, so there may be some connection there.
So, just for a bit of fun and intrigue I thought I’d make a post here if anyone wants to engage in wild speculation! Also, if anyone has a better English translation of Passerini’s comment, it would be welcome.
UPDATE: Daniele Passerini says on his site (courtesy Google, again) “Tonight however, appointment of this blog to 23.59 for a major openings …”
So it looks like the news that Daneile has will be released at midnight Italian time, or 6:00 p.m. US Eastern time.
