Re: PBS Interpretation of a fusor...

That’s a cool presentation. It treats fusion as something almost commonplace, and as a source of inspiration for the next generation of experimenters. One of whom, one of these days, is going to crack the code...

Re: Going Out On A Limb

In my biography of Philo Farnsworth, I quoted the philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer, who said that "the truth goes thru three phases: first it is ridiculed, then it is opposed, then it is recognized as having been self-evident all along." I think the evolution of the fusor falls somewhere between step...

It Was 90 Years Ago Today...

If you happen to turn on a TeeVee today... hell, if you look at a video screen (actually, you're looking at a video screen NOW) ... tip a nod toward Philo T. Farnsworth, who delivered electronic video to the planet 90 years ago today... In 1977 (FORTY years ago!) I worked in concert with Farnsworth'...

Re: Fusor.net Outage

I will make it my mission to get on the horn with Media Temple today and get them to walk me through where those passwords are stashed, and then I'll share them with you.

A frequent offline back up.. yeah, good idea.

Re: HEAS 2015 Article

"...game, but baffled parents." I never had any issue of my own, so maybe I'm speaking out of turn here but... isn't that the experience of parents, generally, regarding their offspring?? In any event, I've got a post about the WaPo feature on the front page of the website, and I've run it up all th...
