Re: Any chance of an off-topic or non-fusion forum?

I am going to express some reticence along the lines of what Richard has said above. While I think there is certainly some room for tangential discussions, I'm inclined to agree with Richard that those tangents should stem from – or eventually return to – the topic of fusion and/or The Fusor. That c...

Migration Update 190830

Hello, 'tis I again... This morning/afternoon, Andrew, Frank and I spent about 2 hours in a Webex/Conference call ironing out some of the bugs that have sprung up in the wake of our total site migration. Some of you may, for example, have noticed that some posts for various assortments of pornograph...

Re: FUSOR.NET v4 is now LIVE!

The avatars is one of the things Frank and Andrew struggled with, or, at least, had to put some deliberate time and effort in to. Glad to see it worked out. One of the remaining issues is thumbnails for the various images that have been posted over the years. That's the next, and possibly last, item...

Re: FUSOR.NET v4 is now LIVE!

Greetings, Fusor Enthusiasts: It is I, "The Perfesser," who, 20-some years ago thought it would be a good idea to have a place on the Interwebs where people could explore and discuss - and build - nuclear fusion devices as conceived in the 1950s by Philo T. Farnsworth. Now, here we are, more than 20...

Re: Apollo 11 and Farnsworth (and Brown)

"Anti-gravity has a lot of proponents, but not one experimenter has had any result on a scale we can use." That we know of. That has been publicly reported. My "sources" in the Townsend Brown investigations tried to infer otherwise, with the added temptation that such information has been deliberate...

Apollo 11 and Farnsworth (and Brown)

Hey guys, As the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11 ramps up this week (today, July 16 is the anniversary of the launch; Saturday the 20th is the anniversary of the landing), I've posted the last chapter of my Farnsworth biography on Medium.com: https://medium.com/@paulschatzkin/apollo-11-50-please-remem...

Re: web site problem

I concur with the steps that Frank has taken here. I appreciate Andrew's comments as well, but it seems to me that what Frank has done is cordon of the things that should require somebody to enroll, like "introduction and chat area, and the advanced discussion area." If it helps to manage the traffi...

Re: Commentary on Doing Fusion

Coming in a bit late here... catching up with all the traffic issues, etc.... stopped to skim through this thread. I concur with the initiative to stop making note of a Fusioneer's age, and that will in the long run reduce the traffic from the idly curious. The discussion reminded me of something th...
