Status on the CTC test

on .

We opened up the test cell that had the Acetone in it.  We are currently examining the wire and seeing interesting barnacle looking deposits on it.  We will share those pictures when we get them together.

In the place of that wire, we installed 50 meters of 40 gauge Constantan wire (90 strands at 40 cm, 0.078 cm diameter) that we will attempt to load and then cycle. We added an external heater to the cell so it will be heated passively.  This is based on a report that after repeated thermal cycling in H2, bare isotan started to show a few watts of excess heat.  We'll give it a try after we run a calibration in the calorimeter with the modified test cell.  Expect more updates with photos when we have time.

To better show the problem I have in my RSS reader:


BTW, since date sorting doesn't work for RSS feeds for these spreadsheets, it would be better to have dates in ISO format (yyyy-mm-dd HH:mm) so that alphanumerical ordering for all rows would also be chronological.

>>If someone could tell me how to make it do that with a script every time a line is added, I would be happy to get rid of those lines.

Will this work?

Those blank lines are there only to help calculate the UTC timestamp. If someone could tell me how to make it do that with a script every time a line is added, I would be happy to get rid of those lines. Anybody ever write scripts for Google Spreadsheets? I looked at them briefly, but couldn't put the time in to really figure it out.

Unrelated with the ongoing experiments, but I'm wondering if you could remove these empty lines from the experiment logs:


Doing this would make RSS feeds for changes on those pages more readable.

For this test could you try for the first loading attempt the highest hydrogen pressure you can safely set?
