  • GLD: Key Week Coming Up [View article]
    Hi Avi,
    Still lurking and following your articles.
    Thanks for continuing to keep us informed.

    I'm taking a class in Macro econ this semester to keep my mind active. I am assuming that sentiment is a major part of "willing" when it comes to willing and able to buy (demand). I now know just enough to be dangerous ;-). Good thing you're here to keep me on line.

    ii,
    How many times can you bet the farm before you lose it?

    Hi RA,
    Have to agree that there is both benefit and fat in the current gov. situation. It has already been proven that large govt. departments overlap and waste can be gotten rid of by getting rid of a dept. by reassigning responsibilities. EG: the ICC (interstate commerce commission) was one that became defunct as their areas of responsibility overlapped with the FHWA (Federal HiWay Admin) and the USDOT (Dept of Transportation). The ICC is no more. These are the kinds of cuts and realignment that I understood Ron Paul to be talking about.

    Hi Bob,
    I'm running off memory, but will try to give what info I remember. There was (if I am remembering correctly) a chart that showed at least two versions of the PBC and this is the basis for the perception. We saw this chart just before the auto sheeting process was announced and there was talk that maybe the secret sauce could be tweeked for different performance characteristics, or once we heard of the auto sheeting line, maybe the batteries the new system produced were version 2. Lots of speculation, deep thoughts devoted to crumbs of info ln an unwatered desert.

    Hi RA,
    APUs for trucks is what I was doing research for when I ran into AXION. I also think they would be a niche product, but even a niche product sale combined with others would add up.

    Hi BW,
    Happy to hear your doing OK, and my sock drawer continues to gurgle from being underwater, but this is the only way that I can currently support the tech that I think is an ultimate winner.

    Yeah, I remember all the surprise and astonishment on finding out that the sheeting process hadn't been automated before, but to me and my fabrication experience it was bound to be something that was in primitive stages of development. I still see (in theory) the possible announcements of new and improved processes that will further cut costs of production for higher margin of profit while lowering the end user costs (yes, I realize that in time a cost efficiency peak will be reached).

    Hang in there Bud and keep hanging around, you have friends here whether you are invested or not, that appreciate your opinion to help keep us honest.

    Hi BW,
    Oh no you don't. You can't go back to lurk mode until I've said "How ya doin Bud"? Don't hear from you much any more and just want to make sure you're OK.

    Hi ARGE,
    We can't even get pot holes filled out here. So I don't see this happening except as a pilot project. Notice there is no discussion about the decrease in output from tire wear (rubber on the panels) or the normal oil residue on roads? I think this is another green cool idea without much practical application unless you want to use it in your driveway (to charge a power cube of course).

    Hi JR,
    Nice to see you have something of value to add to the discussion.

    Faster than a speeding bullet. More powerful than a locomotive. Leap tall buildings in a single bound.

    Sound familiar?

    Hi ii,
    "the Redflow battery will be competitive if the company can triple the device's cycle life.

    “In our view, this should be achievable,” according to the analysis"

    Oh yeah, all they have to do is improve cycle life to make it economical 3X. Piece of cake. ;-)

    Hi Amouna,
    I think what I hear from returning military vets fits. "it is what it is".

    Hi JP,
    I understand the opportunity costs of focusing on a small market vs a larger market that would have quicker pay back for the R&D needed to make a system work. I was originally hoping to put a system together in my garage (why I was searching for a battery to begin with).

    All water under the bridge at this point as I found the batteries were unavailable to the common tinkerer. The best I could do was buy some stock for my sock drawer and hope my time would come to tinker in the garage.
