Ok, I assumed you were hosting somewhere else. If you're hosting your own service, then you have a lot more control over it. (of course!) NearlyFreeSpeech.net is quite capable of serving high traffic websites. Why do you say you "don't know" about it? Can you cite specific data or site own...

Re: polywellnuclearfusion.com site

Hi, Bill I would be willing to host your site for free. I will monitor traffic as necessary and my ISP is usually good about throttling back DOS attacks. email to elrodwinlin at yahoo your email address for the site is also getting bounced mrchito, What service do you think makes sense for hosting ...

Re: cyber-squatters

I'm sure a few people here have run into this already. Somebody is sitting on the domainname "polywellfusion.com". (I doubt if it's somebody here, but please correct me if I'm wrong...) He is probably waiting to make a profit of opportunity, i.e., for someone to make an offer. However, it...

EricF, I'm another layman, so take what I say and disbelieve it thoroughly. But look at Fusion Cross-Sections (scroll down to the paragraph that starts with "The reaction cross section"). Some materials will fuse very easily, and others hardly at all. You can get more fusions by cranking u...

pBj is a neutron producer. About 4 or 5 orders of magnitude less than D-T or D-D but still a neutron producer. Side reactions. BB = Beam - Beam BG = Beam - Gas Oh yeah, that's right. Thanks! Are the calculations (cross section, etc.) for side chain reactions in a pBj machine based on the assumption...

Sorry, I feel like I'm being slow on the uptake, but can I ask --
MSimon wrote:1 Mw ~ 1,000 hp. So trucks powered by fusion reactors may be in the cards. If the radiation issues can be worked out.
What radiation issues? The heat load on the coils?
MSimon wrote:The most important question is the steady state question. Second most important is: BB or BG fusions.
What is BB and BG fusion? Did I miss that discussion?

The thing is, it turns out wget isn't the right tool for the job. So I've got to write it up in perl when I can find a spare minute.

Then running it every two weeks would be completely automatic.

Hi derg, did you get a chance to download the backup while I had it posted?

I will post another one in a few months and leave it posted for a week or so.

So in the very center that would probably be low ("cold"). And it would be highest ("hot") right around the magrid. I know for sure the ions (H- and B5-) are the opposite. Can somebody explain which way around the electrons are? This is how I thought they were: (but kcdodd is ma...

Re: GE, Honeywell, Raytheon, etc?

There are companies interested. I'm not at liberty to say who. I think the realities even at big companies are pretty tough. R&D budgets are for specific research objectives, with concrete, monetary outcomes. The fact that there are big companies paying attention (thanks, MSimon!) means a lot. ...

tombo, that design sounds good to me. One question 93143 had was what the shape of the grids/plates for lateral deflection should be -- specifically, he did the thought experiment of lateral deflection using wedge-shaped plates, and noted that the high voltages would not allow a sharp edge on the in...

It's possible that the costs of raw materials (copper, for one) and equipment will make coal plants seem expensive relative to a BFR plant. That depends on the operating cost of the BFR -- and I believe MSimon when he says the power supplies are a major part of that -- amortized over its lifespan. I...
