    Also, still no delivery of wire for cable demo project to have been delivered by end of 2012Q3. Two years and counting on this failure.

    Folks wonder why no one will give poor STI a contract.

    I see THE LYING TROLL is bringing out one its specialized aliases in an attempt to deceive which it does routinely.

    Big Drop due to Stock Options

    In the past 30+ years options have failed to MOTIVATE the management team to make SCON a success.

    SCON needs a product that brings in more than not meaningful revenue.

    SCON is still attempting to deliver wire for the cable demo project for over 2-years.

    Don't think another in a long line of dilutions will happen till late January as STI should have enough cash to last till mid-February.

    In the meantime sp will continue to sink and current warrant holders will further descend underwater.

    THE LYING TROLL would have one believe warrant holders will exercise at prices below strike, only in Robozland.

  • mask_ipx_spx mask_ipx_spx Nov 26, 2014 3:49 AM Flag

    THE LYING TROLL now wants one to believe that STI ordered another R&D RCE at the time it ordered a pilot RCE. This is a company that was facing delisting at the time and low on cash.

    Reality, STI shipped a R&D RCE to Austin in order to claim in the 20130221 PR that "Conductus wire completely fabricated in our Austin facility", the R&D RCE may have been shipped back to Santa Barbara by 20130307 cc to claim it was there.

    The 20130221 PR was an attempt to boost stock price for another cash raise, i.e., dilution and avoid delisting.

    A 12-1 reverse stock split had to be used to solve the delisting, with subsequent dilutions to raise cash.

    STI is now low on cash once again with no orders, still not able to deliver wire for cable demo project after over 2-years since date to deliver.

    I didn't have to claim THE LYING TROLL is a stupid liar, as stupid is what stupid does.

    Not expecting Purchase Orders until NEXT YEAR

    STI is running short of cash again. Another dilution with glowing PRs preceding late January.

  • mask_ipx_spx mask_ipx_spx Nov 25, 2014 3:39 AM Flag

    THE LYING TROLL, "Now where is your proof that any were shipped to Austin.", referring to R&D RCE machine.

    THE LYING TROLL is reaching, JQ admits a R&D RCE was used in Austin to justify the PR to imply the pilot RCE was used to produce wire, but JQ was forced to admit in the cc that the pilot RCE was not capable, STI was in great need of additional cash, thus this under investigation PR.

    So LYING TROLL, where did this R&D RCE used in Austin come from? Robozoland?

  • mask_ipx_spx mask_ipx_spx Nov 21, 2014 12:18 AM Flag

    THE LYING TROLL would have one believe that a R&D RCE machine magically appeared in Austion. I'll dismember the remaining lies as time permits.

    THE LYING TROLL, "6) STI never shipped the R&D RCE machine to Austin. It is still located in Santa Barbara."

    2012Q4 cc on 20130307, SA transcript: JQ, "The wire coming out of out Austin plant is relatively short because we're implementing it on a -- one of our R&D machines. So it's less than meter lengths."

    PR of 20130221, "Recently we shipped the first Conductus wire completely fabricated in our Austin facility ..."

  • mask_ipx_spx mask_ipx_spx Nov 19, 2014 3:58 AM Flag

    "the testing shows excellent uniformity across both the width and length of the wire", just the specifics on width and length are not given.

    Reminds me of the PR that wire was being produced in Austin, implying the pilot RCE was producing the wire.

    As it turned out, STI shipped a R&D RCE to Austin that was producing under 1 meter lengths of wire.

    Yahoo still acting up

    I deleted the previous post between the "----" .

    Not only did Yahoo delete my post, but any replies.

    I conclude that Yahoo has become useless, as the paid Underwriters Investor Relations Professional, i.e. paid pumpers, can not be held accountable for posting history.

    As japan (The Underwriters Investor Relations Professional, i.e. paid pumpers) has admitted to removing its posted messages, lets experiment. I'll remove this message in about a day, and we'll see if YAHOO notes the poster has removed a post.

    I'll re-post this message subsequent to said removal.

    Those warrant holders of the three dilutions in 2012 in Dec., Nov. and Feb. didn't "convert a minimum to keep STI going", thus the need for the Aug. 2013 dilution.

    Warrants can be exercised, but the common stock obtained need not be sold and can be loaned.

    THE LYING TROLL claims I was pumping SCON, but fails to provide any proof, yet again proving THE LYING TROLL is THE LYING TROLL.

    Btw, STI claims to have designed the RCE-CDR.

    STI may come though, but the long delay in providing the wire for the cable demo (2-years and counting), a real product that can be independently verified and measured is a major drawback.

    Still tuning commercial RCE, no revenue till wire is ordered & delivered, but till RCE is tuned no wire, no revenue.

    Took about 2-years to tune pilot RCE, which output is 20% of design.

    JQ says a lot of things, such as commercial production was to start late 2013 or early 2014; wire for cable demo project was to be delivered 2012Q3, neither happened. Welcome to Safe Harbor.

  • mask_ipx_spx mask_ipx_spx Nov 14, 2014 12:51 AM Flag

    A whopping $334k was collected on warrants of 130k in 3rd-Q.

    Those Aug. 2013 warrant holders (the last 120% dilution) know a future dilution is upcoming with a lower exercise price which they also get.

    Why buy now when a sale is coming up.

    Any bets that STI can achieve a 200% dilution this next round?

    2013Q4 SA transcript: "We are confident we are close to successfully converting customers to stage three for several reasons."

    STI was confident in Mar. 2014, but still no stage-3 orders, reason could have been that STI couldn't produce commercial quantities of HTS wire, which hasn't changed.

    2014-Q3 cc predictions

    2013Q3 SA transcript: "As stated earlier, we are beginning to take delivery of various components for our 1-kilometer RCE machine. We expect to have this machine assembled in the first quarter of 2014, putting us on track to exit the second quarter with significant production capacity."

    "Being off by 2 months" would be well ahead of schedule for STI. Given the about 2-years that it took to produce 50m length off the pilot 100m RCE, figure getting 500m off the 1000m RCE in late 2016 at 20% of stated p/y production capacity as the best case.

    What they say they will do and what they do varies a great deal and is protected by "Safe Harbor".

    That cable demo wire was suppose to be produced and delivered in 2012Q3, but has yet to be delivered (2+years & counting), which per JQ, "get that project completed and the independent testing and bringing that information to the market." is a big milestone.
