Much has been going on in Minnesota and with everyone else busy, we are trying to find ways of getting more information to you all faster.
Two cells are being constructed into isothermal boxes for testing the array of nano and nano-micrometric powders of various types we have access to from Brian Ahern, QSI and Bob Higgins.
The development work has been captured into Evernote as this is really convenient to do for the team - in this case Malachi and Ryan - however, Alan Goldwater and Mathieu are starting to use it also, so we had to find a way of getting this information streamed onto the QuantumHeat.org site. We have been testing Zapier.com and cloudhq.net and are using both - one is making PDFs of posts and the other is making links to the Evernotes in a Google sheet.
Let us know what you think.
UPDATE #1 - Cool videos
Disassembling the powder cell
Swapping the micro Ni powder for the Quantum Sphere Inc nano Ni.
UPDATE #2 - Brian Ahern powder IN!
After a VERY generous donation of time, money and resources by Nikita Alexandrov of Permanetix Corporation, Last week, we received back the milled Zirconium Oxide / Palladium / Nickel matrix powder to the milling specification of Dr. Brian S. Ahern. A big thank you to Nikita.
About a third of this powder was today, 15th August, placed into the powder cell. A further third or so is expected to go into the "Sparky Cell" that another great volunteer - Skip has been working so hard on of late.
Check out the recent links to Evernote above for the details.

UPDATE #3 - Loading!
UPDATE #4 - Calculated excess rising?
Calculated excess heat above calibration consistently trending upwards as Dr Brian Ahern's powder continues to absorb Hydrogen.
Ryan has made a live google spreadsheet that regularly updates showing calibration based calculations of excess heat.
UPDATE #5 - Testing Higgins' Powder, Dec 15, 2014
Powder from Bob Higgins has been installed into the cell and the cell calibration has been checked. The calibration was right on from last time, still. Nice. What happens next? Bob Higgins suggested this:
