Re: FAQ - Paschen, gas, vacuum, electrostatics, break down, etc., etc.

Here are some related fusor pictures from the distant past. Starting and stopping and in-between with many needlepoint passive ionizers makes for interesting study. viewtopic.php?f=18&t=7844

Photos from the site from 2000 up to 2013

The search for photos on drives and locations has been ongoing. I have, preserved in its entirety, all of the photos from the site from around 2000 to 2013. Unfortunately, it does not contain any of the files from 2013 to 2019. The file names that are on these photos are the original file names and ...

Re: I want to help fix fusor.net!! (join up listing)

Rex thanks for you great work on this. As you probably noticed, you now have editing and some other features on the site. Maybe there is more to be learned from all of this. The backups well before the migration had a portion of the attachments missing. Only from one of the files folders. There was ...

Re: Sigh...

My guess it is a way to demostrate that steam could produced that could turn a turbine and make electricity. Had there been solicitation for mega dollars for a hotel sized scale up, I would be screaming fraud for good reason. However, I do not think the lad was trying to get something over on anybod...

Re: Sigh...

Richard, Why would they be venting the vacuum out of the top of the chamber? Look at the video again. There are two ends of the copper tubing coming out of the insulated transparent top cover. One side of the tubing has a cap. There is also an electrical lead or ground wire connected to it. It reall...

Re: Sigh...

Not sure if you noticed but the waste heat is being turned to steam by the copper vent port at the top. Not sure if the electrode itself is hollow tubing? Grounded maybe or even floating.

Re: Not good news about the lost links on the site

In sea of despair over the lost photos comes a glimmer of light. It is true that many of the photos that existed on MT are indeed gone. However, there, off in a distant corner, existing in obscurity, in the shadow of the forum before it was migrated to phpBB, exists essential all of the photos betwe...

Re: Not good news about the lost links on the site

We appreciate your ideas to find the problem. Early on we have tried what you are all suggesting. The problem is that some of the attachment files vanished about a week before MT crashed the site with the SQL error being the only semblance of the site left. The reason the site was down for around a ...
