Andrea Rossi posted that there would be visitors to his lab yesterday to observe the Ecat setup and take measurements. I watched the livestream early in the day and I think I saw in the reflections on the lamp Andrea Rossi and three other persons. I was able to take this picture which shows two different people (I think AR is the one in the dark suit)
When asked about how far he had to go to reach the pre-order target, AR responded:

Thank you for your kind support. Today we had a meeting with a very important big buyer and I think that we are approaching the target.
In another comment a reader asked which sector the potential big buyer was, Rossi responded: “Electricity Producer”
He also made this comment about the measurements that were taken:

Today we made the periodic measurement of the Amperes of the current consumed by the Ecat SKLep subject to the live streaming on Youtube.
As pre-announced, the measurements have been made at 11:30 a.m. Rome Time and 12:30 p.m. Miami Time.
The result has been, as the viewers surely saw, 457.3 microAmperes at 11:30 and 452.3 at 12:30.
When we make these measurements, whose goal is to read the value of the fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh decimal of Ampere, we observe a reduction of the light of the lamp, for 2-3 seconds during which we make the measurements. This dimming effect is due to the fact that the Peakthech measures the amount of electricity that goes from the Power source to the Ecat and obviously it is put in series between the Ecat and the power source; since the amount of current to the Ecat is extremely low ( as we have seen microamperes ), the connection of the multimeter affects the circuits of the Ecat. This is not important to us, because the measurement takes 2 or 3 seconds, then we take off the multimeter from the circuit. Obviously the lamp turns completely off during the time when the circuit has to be opened to connect the multimeter in series and eventually to disconnect the multimeter and reconnect the original circuit.
