INFORMAVORE's SUNDAY No 496

My Dear Readers from everywhere,

We still have to wait a bit for Defkalion’s official test results.
We still have to wait till we really understand where, how, why
industrial LENR works- and why it does not work -when doing so.
Veteran cold fusionists like me are great experts even maestros in waiting. But it is both pathological and counterproductive to like waiting. I don’t like it at all.

My new Project, based on the fundamental idea that old researchers have to routinely execute infinite and impossible tasks- I am speaking about the translations of my Problem Solving Rules, is going VERY slowly see please: http://egooutpeters.blogspot.com/2012/02/list-of-languages-for-translation-of-my.html

I cannot understand and it hurts me that my friends speaking Chinese, Hindi, Arabic, Japanese or some 20 European languages are NOT helping me.
But I am a lover of positive thinking- many other friends have helped me with generosity and I am grateful to them.
The next week will be much better.
Peter
