E-Cat Presentation Could be Delayed beyond February, Rossi’s Team ‘Still Resolving Problems’

I’m sure that many readers here are wondering what the status is of the presentation that Andrea Rossi has been talking about for a few months now. Recently he has said that he was optimistic that it would be held in February, but now it doesn’t sound like he is so sure. Here’s a Q&A from the Journal of Nuclear Physics yesterday:

Dear Andrea,
January is coming to an end soon. Are you stil optimistic that the presentation in February will go on?
All the success with the ECat SKL testing!
Kind regards, Gerard

Gerard McEk:
We are working on it and still resolving problems. The time runs too fast, but I am still optimistic. If it will not be February, it should be March, but we are close.
Warm Regards,

What kinds of problems are they dealing with? Here is a Q&A between Rossi and Steven Karels on the JONP:

Dear Andrea Rossi,

You posted “we always have problems coming up.”

Please clarify. Does this mean:
1. New problems are arising and must each be solved?
2. The SKL has problems getting started?
3. The SKL has reliability problems?

1 yes
2 yes
3 yes
We are working hard as usual and I still am optimist . Really optmist.
Warm regards

They are obviously not going to be holding a public product presentation until they are sure it works properly. Rossi is always optimistic, but it sounds like there are some issues that they are having difficulty resolving, and maybe expecting resolution by next month is not realistic.
