Steorn updates, things are cooling down...

Well, it might’ve been too good to be true.
And when that time passed, nothing happened. After a while, a notice appeared that due to technical difficulties, streaming would start on July 5th.
Perhaps this is the beginning of the end for Steorn.
Update: Steorn has confirmed the device is not operating as it should, but they say they are working on it, and intend to turn on the streams tomorrow, even if the device is still not working, so we can see “stressed engineers” trying to fix it.
In one of my first posts on this enigmatic company, I mentioned the possibility of them deluding themselves, and I’m afraid the things that have happened over the past few days point in that direction.
I’d still be very happy if Steorn turned out the be on to something, but the signs are not good..
The websites of Steorn and Kinetica still promise a demo, so perhaps they simply are having problems streaming. Will keep you posted.
