    My claim of your pumping SCON is no different than your claims that I lie. Why should I offer any proof when you do not? BTW I can find proof of my claim. I'll just copy selected content from some of your posts just like you have done from mine. Now which of you aliases shall I use... how about outofdate1980! Darn....the UILT will go erase those posts now! LOL! LOL! LOL!

    The UNMASKED IDIOTIC LYING TROLL once again proves his ignorance AND his stupidity! Let me illustrate!

    From the STI SEC Filing for the April 2013 sale:
    "The warrants will have an initial exercise price of $5.45 per share and will be initially exercisable ONE YEARAND ONE DAY from their date of issuance. One warrant will be exercisable for a period of one year following the date that such warrant is initially exercisable and the other warrant will be exercisable for a period of five years following the date that such warrant is initially exercisable."

    Facts: one of those warrant holders from this sale was Kopp! Kopp also purchased shares and warrants in August.

    Why the UILT is ignorant and stupid:
    1) Those warrants were not exercisable until April 2014, so they could not be exercised in 2013.
    2) Their exercise price was $5.45/ when was the last time STI was over $5.45 since the r/s! NEVER!
    3) Even if they were exercisable why would anybody exercise at a loss? (I think the UILT might actually do that cause he is soooo stupid! LOL! LOL! LOL!)

    Another FACT: Kopp was a significant buyer in the August 2013 share and warrant purchase. His continued support of STI shows a strong interest in their success.

    It is clear that if STI had not been able to sell those RESN shares, that Kopp would have exercised more warrants, but there was no need! He wants to retain as many as he can so he can maximize his return on his investment.

    Please also note that the UILT is maintaining his patently false statement about it taking SCON almost 2 years to accomplish their goal.. It was more like 15 months...significantly less time! I proved this, but the UILT ignores the truth and reality all of the time...and of course he really is a stupid idiot!

    As I have explained to the extremely dense UNMASKED IDIOTIC LYING TROLL several times, the warrant holders will only convert a minimum to keep STI going. If STI was not able to sell their resonant stock, which they did privately to Resonant owners, employees and other investors then the warrant holders would have converted more warrants to keep STI going and still make money doing it. They want to keep as many of these warrants as they can because when SCON takes off they will make a fortune. Before they would allow a dilution that would devalue their warrants they will convert them. So the UILT's statement is really idiotic.

    IMO the warrant holders, like most intelligent folks, know that STI is very close to achieving their goal and want to hold on to those warrants for the time being. Their existence is already factored into the current share price, especially in recognition that any time they are exercised it brings working capital to STI.

    Yesterday's price drop was the bashers hedge fund (who are likely SCON market makers) owners drove down the price artificially with phony trades. They leash their moronic dogs on the boards as part of a cover/excuse for the drop.

    And for our own long term idiot, d.head.johnson21, I would like you to know that I really don't give a damn if anybody cares what I think or not. I do know that many read what I say, which is factual, and appreciate getting the truth for a change. I'm not here to win a popularity contest and I'm not paid pennies to make idiotic statements either like you are! Please also note that I have used the same board name since I started certainly can't make that claim truthfully! LOL! LOL! LOL! Why do you hide behind so many aliases????

    Yep I sure can spell fraud in many of its variations! Here are just a few
    1) mask_ipx_spx
    2) youthinklikeafool
    3) blaand
    4) #$%$.Johnson21
    5) scon_failure
    6) sconroller
    7) scondisciple

    BTW masked you still can't get facts straight!

    A) Cable demo wire first planned for 100m RCE-CDR machine which was delayed due to needed design changes.
    B) Because of above, STI changes and tries to use R&D machine. This machine clearly doesn't have the ability to be controlled to the degree needed (as I indicated) This was the time when I pointed out that they planned on producing it in step A and of course the "fool" said I was wrong (in many different obusive and offensive ways). I insisted that they needed the 100m RCE-CDR machine to do it... and I was right. But this step was a fallback (not the plan as the UILT suggests).
    C) STI was finally able to get the 100M machine operational and was able to produce the HTS wire to meet the cable demo needs. The final coating, which JQ has stated is non-standard, was not possible to apply with the RCE-CDR equipment and so an outside supplier was selected. Based on JQ's statements it is evident that their customer did not have detailed specifications for this layer only general requirements and thus a trial and error process is underway. Based on the latest CC, this is almost completed. BTW both the UILT and the "fool" denied that an outside supplier was involved. Here is a statement from yesterday's CC.

    "We also made excellent progress with finishing layer evaluations during the quarter. Multiple customers have completed their testing of the protective cap layer deposited by our supplier and are pleased with the results." Gee... both were 100% wrong... as usual!

    D) It is most important that STI focus on getting their new 1km production machine up and running producing the highest amperage wire that is needed. Thus they have relegated their prototype 100m equipment to satisfying stage 1 customers while focusing on the 500A/cm wire.

    worthless (=d.head.johnson21). Beware the (paid) bashers here. One foul mouthed moron (d.headjohson21) has many fake names (and lost tens if not hundreds of other aliases)through TOS violations. He has been here for at least 15 years being paid pennies to bash a small tech company so his hedge fund bosses can manipulate the stock and fleece investors out of $ millions.

    Cable Demo Predictions

    r2d2_n_c3po r2d2_n_c3po Nov 11, 2014 10:28 AM Flag

    Here are my comments on his Demo Cable predictions. It is of necessity rather lengthy and I won't address all of the idiotic statements in his 3 posts which are related to this topic.

    His "predictions” about the STI demo cable are stated in 3 posts on 10/24/14 (2:55 PM), 10/27/14 (11:15 AM), & 10/28/14 (3:35 PM)

    He has assumed that the cable is for AC power distribution; however, DC power distribution is of intense interest in the HTS area because there are "ZERO" losses in an HTS DC power cable while there are still small but relevant losses in HTS AC distribution. IMO a DC cable would be more significant for a demo.

    Based on his statements he seems to believe that it will be a 3-in-1 cable design that Sumitomo favors, but he states that it will only be a single phase of the 3 phase design. He says it will have an HTS shield.
    Such a shield is unnecessary for a single phase cable and is needed only if all 3 phases are present in a 3 in 1 cable. In a later post he waffles on the need for the HTS shield.

    “It is possible they could be building this demo cable without a HTS shield layer.”

    Each conductor in a 3 in 1 cable is created by wrapping the HTS tapes around a large copper wire former. This former is also the path for fault currents.

    He fails to mention any former and he contradicts this fact by stating “The finishing layer is a relatively thick piece of copper (or brass) that is laminated to STI’s wire via SOLDERING…”, and “The finishing layer is protecting against high fault currents. It is not dependent on the final cable application or protection during manufacturing.”

    The first of these two statements is pure insanity. NOBODY would ever solder copper to an HTS tape. NEVER! The wires for the Albany 3 in 1 project were completely encased in copper stabilization layer before they were wound. Such layers are typically a few microns thick. STI can deposit copper using their RCE-CDR equipment while others use electroplating methods. (2b cont.)

    Well, I've delayed these forthcoming posts for too long. I had dropped some bait but the "fool" has been reluctant to pick up those morsels. Ah well, c'est la vie.

    About 12 days ago the "fool" initiated a series of posts regarding his "predictions" about the cable for the cable demo project. I almost choked with laughter the first time I read each of them, and was hoping he would give us more. But alas he has gone silent. Hence I will momentarily post my comments about the inanities and stupidity of the statements he made in those posts.

    He claims he has a small position in STI but he persists (as I will demonstrate in my posts) in slamming and belittling SCON's accomplishments and capabilities. IMO there is little if anything that he posts that one can believe unless he actually cites a source (very rare). So everything he say's must be taken with a great deal of skepticism! Now on to those (7( posts)!

    Gee the UILT once again makes really idiotic statements. I guess he doesn't understand the principle of "learning curves". His argument is that because it took so long for STI to get to their 500 A/cm-w wire on their prototype it will take them another (unspecified) long time to do it on their production equipment...this despite STI's repeatedly stated claim that their process is easily scaleable and repeatable. BTW his definition of "commercial production" is different than STI's!. In his mind STI still hasn't made a full capacity run of the prototype because they haven't announced a 100m run, even though a 50m run of 10mm wide wire produces more HTS tape than a 4mm 100m run. That's being stupid and ornery (the latter is his crybaby personality acting up!)

    BTW his statement about demo wire being made in "October" is ludicrous! STI announced 100% yield 500 amp wire run in May, and in August announced a full capacity 100% yield run.

    BTW Folks

    Please do the search he suggested. You won't find any application of Roebel cables to high power transmission lines. (if there were it would likely be in one of the first links to appear). To simplify your search just search on Roebel cable and you will see that the only applications mentioned are for those which involve high magnetic fields such as those encountered in magnets, transformer, motors, generators,, etc.!

    This statement from your citation supports my statements 100%: "...We expect HTS Roebel cables to become just as well established within HTS electrical machines and magnets." Electrical machines are motors and generators!

    In his citatation there is no support for his claim that "Roebel cables can be used for high current transport, i.e. power transmission cable". FYI folks, conventional power transmission cables are High Voltage for a reason... to keep the current low so that losses are minimized. HTS cables are viewed more favorable because they can transmit higher currents at "lower" voltages while still minimizing losses. DC power transmission over HTS cables is an area of high interest because HTS cables have 0(zero) resistance in their superconducting state, and the AC losses, which can occur in both conventional and HTS cables are thus eliminated.

    Roebel cables, if made long enough, could certainly transmit power, however, they are unaffordable! They must start with wide (12mm is typical for what RRI has done in the past) HTS tape and then cut it into a very specific pattern. They must then overlay each layer in a very specific way on preceding layers. This is not conducive to high volume manufacturing hence the final statement in his citation " although efficient production of strands places demands on wire manufacturers for material of high 2D uniformity", which of course effects yield and cost. In addition the equipment to manufacture this kind of wire is likely to be much more mechanically complex and therefore expensive. All of which is likely to make this wire much more expensive than the wire that STI and others are producing. Roebel cable is designed the way it is because it has to operate in time varying magnet fields and it can do this while minimizing AC losses.

    So dear crybaby UILT thanks once again for the opportunity to demonstrate your ignorance and stupidity!

    There is a easy fix to this non-issue! The warrant holders will exercise some of those warrants. That will provide real $ to STI and reduce the quantity of outstanding warrants... this is a real twofer (while the UILT is a loser) ! LOL! LOL! LOL!

    So you finally gave up on those earlier lies did you? I'm sure you will revive them once again...just like you always do... You appear to have a long term memory problem.... YOu forgot about Roebel cable not being a power transmission cable, you forgot when that first production run occurred, you forgot to change you diapers, and you forgot how stupid you were to lose so much money in SCON! LOL! LOL! LOL! Where's your buddy buddy the "fool"? I thought you two were dating!

    Oh, d.head.johnson, do you mean raise money like your favorite AMSC did? Based on today's action it appears that their investors are not too happy about it!

    At least SCON has those deep pocket investors with all those cheap warrants to convert before they do another raise. And of course those warrants are already factored into the current share price. I'm of the opinion that STI will achieve their goals before they would have to do another equity offering. LOL! LOL!
