I also worked on other projects with Tony and Max (Designmakers) who created Halcro's physical designs. *Rose(?) had a little bit (or more) to do with the scheme of things (AKA phone gambling) that financed David Walsh's mega-million dollar MONA art museum in Hobart. The scheme worked by relieving individuals (including one named Packer) of millions of dollars on race days.
    I worked for MineLab in the mid 1980s. I designed the digital part (hardware and software) of the first “ground balancing” metal detector that MineLab manufactured. It could detect the “firing pin” in a plastic mine in inductive soils. No other metal detectors, at that time, could do that. I worked with Bruce on a daily basis.

    I only knew Bruce as he once presented a paper on the Halcro amplifier design at a meeting of the Audio Engineering Society. There were a lot of extremely clever radio and audio engineers in Adelaide in those days who had an enormous influence globally. I was always intrigued by how insight in one discipline could lead to innovation or application in another discipline, e.g. the application of RF wave theory from his expertise in broadband military (spy) antenna design that John Dunlavy used in loudspeaker design (Duntechs which were made in Adelaide and air freighted to the US market). John kindly allowed me to use his very well equipped research laboratories for loudspeaker developments for the Adelaide Festival Centre through the late '80s.

    Marc's posts usually have a muggeseggele of truth to them so I guess he's the expert on forum smut.

    Where did I mention steam dumping or steam bypassing the turbine? In a quotation from Electrical Engineering Stack Exchange, a question and answer site for electronics and electrical engineering professionals, students, and enthusiasts. The boiler/turbine/generator system is less efficient when running sub-optimally in order to preserve some spinning reserve. Inertia is a component of spinning reserve, but as soon as inertial energy is used to power the generators frequency will begin to drop. To have sufficient spinning reserve the boilers must to be producing more heat energy than the generators are currently using using and the turbines and generators must have more output capability than current demand. Like in your car example, there has to be some spare throttle and a reserve of fuel in the carburettor. Your analogy breaks down after that because extra energy in the form of petrol can be delivered to the virtually instantly carburettor, whereas a steam boiler is slow to build up pressure to feed the turbines. This is the sort of problem we had to deal with in the electrical engineering lab, which had motors, turbines, boilers, generators and gearboxes set up on benches with tachometers, dynamometers, etc, etc so we could run real life experiments and measure performance of many types of energy transformation. All of this stuff is defined by the equations derived from the laws of thermodynamics.

    Thanks Bros. Your tenacity in proving a pointless point is admirable, but doesn't correct the many mistakes in your posts. And the laws of thermodynamics still hold, even if my memory doesn't always.

    I never said I was always right but you do. I rarely make any comment unless I know what I am talking about and I dont rely on search engines to back up what I say.

    Remember what i was once told if you go about telling lies you have to have a bloody good memory as you have to remember the last lie you told, the truth stays the same.

    Additionally I have deleted my post of the explaination as you are not much better than an internet troll and the truth is rational posting is irrelevant.

    Where have I ever said I was always right? I know better than anyone else how fallible I am and I have never shied away from acknowledging my mistakes. To suggest I am a liar says more about you than me.

    Very funny Bedford. You have not proven me wrong. Absence of proof is not proof of absence. I tired of feeding your obsession with character assassination. Time to move on.

    Anyone promoting port Arthur conspiracies has no credibility to question anyone else on truthfulness. That some let that slide says something too.

    I just looked at Live Supply & Demand Widget, sponsored by RenewEconomy – NEM-Watch. 1/3 of Australia's electricity is being generated by non-fossile energy sources. No one would have believed that possible when this thread started back when the global warming deniers were trumpeting that the world was about to start cooling. The amount of warming above pre-industrial temperatures has instead almost doubled since this thread started.
