asciilifeform: aimed at what ? the outside ? you'd need a bomb calorimeter and whole thing in transformer oil, to stand any chance of distinguishing a frying cpu from a working one through closed chassis

asciilifeform: !#s calorimeter
mircea_popescu: this is why this interests me, "make stove, with 1700s tech, i'll put it in the calorimeter and measure your %"
mircea_popescu: the calorimeter incidentally is a fine illustration / symbol of science altogether.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: 'engine crackpots' such as they are found today, typically have not even heard of such a thing as calorimeter, because it is not sold in 'home despot'
asciilifeform: at the time i even had access to the necessary calorimeter. so it would not have even been the 50k.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu earlier conceded that the 50k calorimeter would not constitute proof... iirc
asciilifeform: is the presence of the 2 eotvos balances a net positive? or would we actually have a handle on schwartz's result if everyone was STUCK with my $50k version of the experiment (calorimeter.)
asciilifeform: still believes that cold fusion calorimetry indicates real excess heat, the frustrated expert may resort to extreme, untenable claims, such as a statement that no calorimeter has an error less than 10%, when in fact the error margin for top-quality conventional instruments is on the order of 0.1%. Or he may wave his hands and say calorimeters are so undependable that you cannot run one for more than a few days
asciilifeform: anyone got a 'bomb calorimeter' and a few btc asics?
