2020 seems to be shaping up to be a year of great
change, hopefully beneficial to all who reside upon
our Wonderful Planet.

Is the Burden of Debt unsustainable?

Will the U.S. at last be forced to do what is right?

I'm optimistic.  There is potential for quite a lot of good
change to be made in the way the World does business.

I'm running an older computer with Puppy Linux;  the
computer has insufficient memory by today's standards
and a graphics processor that just can't do HTML5 any
justice even though my SeaMonkey Browser has the
latest Flash Player installed.  It also cannot do the most
recent High Efficiency Video Codecs (H.265) so I had to
look for an alternative.  I don't want to get a new computer
because I like Old and Cheap.

The alternative I found was what are known as OnLine
YouTube downloaders.  Plug in the url of the video I wish to
watch and select "download."  Then choose a resolution
of 360p mp4 and, voila, the video plays perfectly full screen!

Also with the option to download should I desire.

I really appreciate what certain TechnoNerds are able to
create and make available to us on the InterNet free of
charge.

The services work with a number of other video sources
as well.   Do a web search for "online video downloader"
or "online youtube downloader."

My browser add-on YouTube Downloader no longer works
because of new YouTube policies.  It seems they're making
it more and more difficult to download videos.

I'm on old computer with Dual core. Invested in SSD disk and more ram and I can watch 720p youtube and videos. Kubuntu is running well with 4GB or ram. I bought this laptop on electronic scrap yard.
Just move on, some things  must change eventually. I have the other one with 1GB ram and single core Celeron with Peperrmint 10 and I must confess I use it to learn patience  O0

Forest,

That the older computers assist (or more accurately demand) our
ability to be patient is very true indeed!

I have been given a couple of newer computers which I haven't tested
yet.  I haven't checked whether they'll take me beyond the 4GB memory
barrier either so I suppose I should get crackin'.

But, I'm sure I'll have to go 64 Bits with more capable CPU and Graphics
in order to be fully compatible with current internet standards...

I do have a new 64 Bit Android TV Box which does some H.265 HEVC
but not all.  It struggles with the highly compressed H.265 videos so
they play clunkily and not smoothly. 

It is capable of browsing the web, when it has a keyboard
and mouse attached, by means of its Browser and it does full screen
YouTube with the YouTube Android App very well indeed.  I'm tempted
to use it temporarily in place of my computer just to see how well
it would perform as an alternative.  I'll have to do some research to
see whether anyone has had success with that yet.  I presently use it
for Internet TV and Internet News Streams.

The TV Boxes are really inexpensive from China and come with
the latest version of Android and an assortment of apps pre-
installed.  They have several usb ports which support the
usual peripherals such as keyboard, mouse, hard drive and
pen/thumb drive and some come with 4GB or more of RAM.

They're so tiny it is really hard to believe that they contain so
much power.  This is an older review - the new ones come with
Android 10.

Correction:  They come with Android 9 (Alice)

Maybe not a "solar" panel.  When two metals with different work functions are brought into contact with each other there is a transfer of electrons, see "contact electrification" in Wikipedia.  Thus if two dissimilar metals have repeated make and break contacts and the electron transfers flow through a load resistor you should get some power out.  Their panels use Al and Bi plus some coils driven at a critical frequency.  As Bi is slightly diamagnetic maybe the alternating field from the coils drives the contact regions of the thin film panels apart and together cyclically.  Should be able to do the same thing with Fe instead of Bi as it has a greater work function.  Worth an experiment I would say.  Maybe the "tuning" for the critical frequency is simply adjusting for the local Earth's magnetic field.  And the sealing (stated to keep out oxygen) is really to keep out moisture.

Quote
In quantum field theory, the Casimir effect and the Casimir–Polder force are physical forces arising from a quantized field. They are named after the Dutch physicist Hendrik Casimir, who predicted them in 1948.

The Casimir effect can be understood by the idea that the presence of conducting metals and dielectrics alters the vacuum expectation value of the energy of the second quantized electromagnetic field.[1][2] Since the value of this energy depends on the shapes and positions of the conductors and dielectrics, the Casimir effect manifests itself as a force between such objects.

As we can see there is always energy present between two plates or conductors as the Casimir effect regardless of whether the device is a solar cell or a capacitor. We already know the energy is present from decades of science and the only real issue is how to transform said energy.

After digging for more on ZPower and the ERR Device I find
that it is Dr. James B. Schwarz rather than Reed Huish who
made the claims and is behind the device.

ERR = Electromagnetic Radiation Receiver

It seems that it is another of the many "Hoaxes" which we
have seen in recent years.  Or at least suspected so.

The Dr. James B. Schwarz ERR challenge

ZPower Solid State Free Energy Device?

Smudge,

Do you have anything more on what the device could be
or how it may theoretically produce electricity?

AC,

You believe that it may be the Casimir Effect?  Would that
be capable of developing significant electrical energy?

A really interesting discussion begins here.

Some Experimenters do have difficulty in Keeping
up with Technology.

One participant seems to believe that he has won
the 'argument' but has he?

I'm with Bi (some call him Bye) on this one.  The Devil
is in the Details.

Technology to the amateur can indeed seem baffling.

Poynt has just informed us of the shocking and very sad news of
ION's passing away.

At times like this finding words to adequately convey feelings of
sorrow is very difficult.  The death of a friend is always so hard
to deal with.  The loss of friendship so stinging.

Even though we are assured that Death is only temporary and
that we shall all live again together in happiness, the pain felt
is enormous.

Rest in Peace Ernie, until we are together again!

Not everyone is happy with 5G installations.

I wonder, could they be telling us something?

Smudge,

or how it may theoretically produce electricity?
Having looked more into "contact electrification", and performed a few sums I don't think this works by deliberate intermittent contact between the two metals, power transfers are too small.  However "dry piles" are an interesting phenomena that can seemingly create perpetuum mobiles, see the pdf below obtained from a link in the wikipedia "contact electrification" page.  The debate between chemical reaction being the source of the energy and some other effect may still rage, but who cares.  There is a device that has been working continuously for 180 years and showing no signs of stopping.  There doesn't seem to have been any exploration of how a magnetic field affects the dry pile, but it is known to affect the Seebeck coefficient.  So it may be possible (but IMO unlikely) that a magnetic field applied to the dry pile enhances its effect enough to turn a scientific curiosity into a practical device.

Cool video Mike

Could the water formation on the battery surface be due the catalytic recombination of elemental gases?

Reminds me of some Pt metal based deep cycle battery fill tops I had on a PV system about 20 years ago.   The Pt metal in the battery fill tops would catalytically recombine the H2 emanated by the recharge/discharge process with atmospheric O2 to produce pure H2O which would drip back into the deep cycle battery.

take care, peace

The Free Energy Special Interest Group (FESIG) has just released video from
their most recent meeting:

Jeanice Barcelo on RADIATION DANGERS

Jeanice exposes a decades-long cover-up of the dangers of ultrasound and
all technologies that utilize non-ionizing radiation (cell phones, cordless
phones, baby monitors, smart meters, etc.). The link between this allegedly
deadly “c-virus” and the symptoms associated with radiation sickness.
Jeanice started off showing the baby monitors and what the radiation looks
like through pictures of graphs from data measurements of the frequencies
emitting radiation. Autism is being activated through this radiation, brain
damage and genetic damage has being triggered in the womb on! Our
children are exposed with radiation that are extremely harmful! Human are
designed to receive frequencies between 3 – 30 Hz but we’re now being
exposed to millions and millions of Hz!! Cell phone, wifi, smart meters are
operating at 2.4 billion hz, i.e. 2.4 Gigahertz! Neurological disfunction is
getting more extreme! We’re being lied to that these frequencies radiation
is safe. There are 1,600 citations from scientific research studies in Jeanice’s
book backing up what she has cited and claimed in her book.


OriAna on TORSION-FIELD PHYSICS And THE ZERO-POINT MATHS

She presented her talk on the following key points:- 1) Quantum physics:
abridged basics, from: - Ancient traditions of olde (-18 000, -3000, -2500 years)
from the High Himalayas and elsewhere, 2) What are machines? -the AI
situation -Solution 3) Maths, basic understanding of Pi, Phi, Cubit, Meter, (Mile),
they are universal, 4) All spiritual & material (scientific) traditions & schools unite
in quantum physics, 5) The Source Equation, 6) Meanings of words: - Occult,
- Kabal - torsion-field terminology overarching in our languages 7) Metagene
Dark matter can refer to any substance which interacts predominantly via gravity
with visible matter (e.g., stars and planets). Hence in principle it need not be
composed of a new type of fundamental particle but could, at least in part, be
made up of standard baryonic matter, such as protons or neutrons.

I'm using an "older" computer which doesn't have a lot of "power" and
doesn't have a graphics processor.  While I have no difficulty playing
video files of h.264 quality or earlier, it just isn't able to keep up with the
modern streaming protocols from YouTube et al.

Fortunately, there is a work-around.  There are free on-line video downloader
services on the web which can be used to download video files from numerous
web pages.  I download videos via those services to my computer as .mp4
files of suitable (360p) quality then am able to play them at my convenience in
normal appearance with my computer's video player software.

My thanks to the Tech Geeks out there who make these kinds of capabilities
available to those of us who use "older" technology!

Yup, I like "Doin' it Cheap."
