HotCat Independent Report

The long-promised report on the HotCat has arrived. Far too early to draw conclusions, I have to admit to being surprised. Never have I longed to be proven wrong so much in my life. We are not there yet, but at face value, this appears to be a giant step in the right direction. Healthy […]

That Was eCatNews

WordPress is trying to tell us something. Its increasing reluctance to post comments breaching the thousand-mark is preparing us for the inevitable. My interest in the eCat and its progeny lay in its promise for the future. Now that I doubt Rossi‚Äôs claims to the point of near certainty, the subject does not deserve the […]

The LieCat

October is dead, taking with it any hope I had that Andrea Rossi would deliver on yet another claim. For some time now, it has been obvious to most that Rossi cannot be trusted. Even his supporters admit he lies as they excuse him for one reason or another. In business, gaining such a reputation […]

eCat EU Patent Rejection – Updated

Update – As though to head off any accusations about a cold fusion block at the EU Patent Office, Piantelli has been informed that his patent will be granted. This appears to have happened in August of this year but it is interesting to note that Rossi’s patent (referred to as WO2009125444) was cited within […]

Defkalion Self-Leaks Catalyst

Hydrogen is not the only leak coming from Defkalion – maybe. When Eldering_G recovered Defkalion’s unredacted report from his cache, he did so because he noticed the company had changed the pdf to one with information blanked out. He was unaware at the time that they had also withdrawn another paper which recounted a March […]

Defkalion And A Jumble Of Thoughts

When you strip away the juvenile dummy (pacifier) spitting, eCatNews comments lend an insight to the psychology of belief and ultra scepticism. This was not my intention when I set it up but it’s there for researchers nevertheless. I find myself torn between the two groups. In nature and temperament, I warm to the positive […]

Original Defkalion Test PDF

With thanks to Eldering_G, the following is the original pdf (with signatures) from Defkalion’s test run. The document was posted on the DGT forum and then swapped for the one doing the rounds now with signatures blanked. I am on the road so post it in good faith for your comment. 2012-09-07_Test protocol signed ETA […]

eCatNews Comments

Sometimes WP screws up comments when they build up and sometimes not. This is one of those times. With luck, this post will fix it. For those thinking that I may have shut the site down, I promise to give warning. If I pull the plug, I will announce the last open post and how […]

Defkalion Stirs Expectations

The following comment can be found on the Defkalion forum. I post it because the statement is specific and the claim has a short timescale (next weeks?) before it will be obviously true or not. Will this come to anything? Given past performance, I am not optimistic but hope to be proven wrong. If so, […]

Rossi Gives His Side Of HotCat Friendly Fire

Andrea Rossi says: DEAR READERS: TODAY A BIG MESS IS POPPED OUT FROM A SHORT MEASUREMENT THAT HAS BEEN DONE THE LAST WEEK. I REALLY HAVE DIFFICULTY TO UNDERSTAND WHY SOME PERSONS HAVE TOTALLY IGNORED WHAT I CLEARLY SAID IN MY PRELIMINAR STATEMENT IN THE REPORT PRESENTED IN ZURICH: I SAID THAT ALL THE DATA […]

Better Zurich eCat Video

If, like me, you struggled to hear the Zurich live feed over the weekend, you will thank Sterling Allan for the following videos. There are two but I will only embed one in fairness to Sterling and to encourage you to visit his site. Even though I watched the whole thing on both days, I […]

HotCat Fail For Hydrofusion – Updated

Important Update from Mats Lewan of Ny Teknik at end of this post. Hydrofusion, the company behind Andrea Rossi’s official web site at ecat.com (and his N European rep) has issued a press release indicating that it cannot support Rossi’s claims for the HotCat. As I always caution against jumping to positive conclusions on flimsy […]

HotCat Report

After listening (with difficulty) to yesterday’s live-stream from Zurich, my first impression was that we had learned nothing new. On reading the subsequent report regarding the tests conducted on July and August at Bologna, I have to revise that assessment. I still feel that jubilation is premature – there are far too many questions and […]

Zurich – Day 1

Unsurprisingly, there is a schism between those who started out sceptical of Rossi’s claims and those with a tendency to believe him when we look at the responses to today’s Zurich play. I was neither disappointed nor surprised. Andrea Rossi had prepared us to temper our expectations and then delivered as promised. I really wish […]
