    The unmasked idiotic LYING TROLL is the only thing here that is truly useless! (and of course a crybaby liar!)

    Before they let STI do "another raise", the current warrant holders will exercise some more of those warrants. That way they will own the new shares, and not somebody else! Besides, before STI can do a new shelf offering they would have to file with the SEC.

    I think we will see a PR about the new Equipment being received and installed followed by an exercise of warrants ( if they haven't already started). As they did last time, we won't hear about the warrant exercise until it is all over with.

    Wow how uncreative he is with his inventions (aka lies). BTW Why doesn't somebody ask him that if "Dr Hammond left for "resonant" for the reason's he cites, why did he agree to act as a consultant to SCON for an unspecified period of time? The fact of the matter is that Dr Hammond left STI because he could see that they were on a path to success using the RCE-CDR process (with which they are 100% familiar), and he invested his own money into Resonant because he foresees the potential and believes in the success of that technology and STI will benefit as well due to their 11%+ ownership of RESN shares. I believe you will also see that the paper the LYING TROLL cited was by Dr. Hammond in his affiliation with Univiersity.

    Remember this is the same LYING TROLL who lied about Dr Hammond leaving STI in Feb 2012.

    The paper he cited had nothing to do with STI. Dr. Hammond was, at the time of the paper, and still is, a staff scientist for GLAM (Geballe Laboratory for Advanced Materials) a Standford University. The paper presented was written by a group of US Government scientists at LANL (Los Alamos National Lab) and Dr. Hammond under his GLAM Stanford affiliation. As far as I know Dr. Hammond has maintained this GLAM relationship for the entire time he has been affiliated with STI and RESN. It enables him to do advanced research into areas that are not of interest to these businesses.

    The LYING TROLL is being rather idiotic suggesting that STI should pursue a new process, one for which they do not own any IP nor do they have any experience, and to start a new direction with an unfamiliar process in their business... it is just plain stupid! (that's him!) Then to lie about Dr. Hammond leaving over that shows his desperation in his attempts to come up with new lies! BTW do a search on Dr "Hammond" on this board (newest first) and see what he thinks of RESN and their technology... of course he presents his opinion as though it is factual in his usual lying method!

    The poor crybaby UNMASKED IDIOTIC LYING TROLL is really getting desperate. So why didn't he take the progress statements by JQ from Q2 2014?

    The crybaby gets caught in one lie after another and how does he respond? He creates yet another! Why can't he just accept the fact that it was his own stupidity that cost him his STI investments? He is being vengeful and acting like an prepubescent adolescent! And he is sooo predictable.

    The "customer" has different expertise doesn't know how to manufacturer HTS wire. This is not cookie cutter manufacturing! Besides manufacturing is an "experience" based process. The more experience, the better the success and higher yields. SCON's RCE-CDR process also involves a lot of proprietary (trade secret)know how in addition to the patented aspects. They would not want that proprietary info to get out.

  • r2d2_n_c3po r2d2_n_c3po Sep 1, 2014 10:27 PM Flag

    Sure, but I'm guessing their is exclusivity built in to that deal. Also who are SNY's customers and does SNY own a significant market share? . Don't know what their products are, but whomever SCON's customers are, they still have to sell their product to their customers.

  • r2d2_n_c3po r2d2_n_c3po Sep 1, 2014 11:42 AM Flag

    Warren,
    I don't think what you've outlined is possible without significant dilution. The term "partnership" implies that the partner must have some evidence of ownership or participation in the business. Any such deal will dilute the value of current shareholders regardless of the nature of the deal (except for a loan). STI is already authorized to issue more shares and that would be their simplest course since that was approved when the r/s occurred. Any other kind of deal (e.g. contractual sale of portion of business) would require stockholder approval.

    To me the thing that makes the most sense would be for a manufacturer who selects Conductus wire for their product, to lock up their supply for the next several years. That might include fronting additional capital equipment expenses to increase production output as well as operating costs until the new production lines are up an running. These are in effect loans which can be paid back by delivering product with a certain portion of the product being used to pay the loan and the remained to derive revenue. Deals like this could be struck with several customers each of whom would "own" the output of however many lines they fund for a period for some number of years. These deals would likely be on a non-compete basis. E.g. One customer might be focusing on fault current limiters, another on MRI machines, another on power transmission lines, and yet another on motors/generators as examples. The key to success, however, is to get the new machine installed, and up and running with high yields. That will be the "proof of the pudding" as the expression goes for the RCE-CDR process.

    Happy labor day!

    So much for those quotes, which present factual information from the company. Let see what conclusions can be drawn from them

    1) So the LYING TROLL lied about the wire being too brittle!
    2) He blames the problem on STI, when the layer that is giving them difficulty is clear being done by a 3rd Party!
    3) His ignorance (or deceptiveness) would have you believe there is only one encapsulation layer. (e.g his selective quote from their website)
    4) It is clear that the process of getting the right layer IS EXPERIMENTAL for all parties, their customer included.
    5) The unmasked idiotic LYING TROLL is exactly the crybaby liar and ignoramus I have described him to be.

    Oh yes, he used a statement of what STI accomplished for a 500 Amp wire as "evidence" that 50 meters is the longest wire. But I asked for a statement which proved that they have not produced longer lengths as indicated by his statements. Clearly he couldn't find one...did he even both to look? I think not otherwise he might have seen this from the 4Q 2013 CC in March 2014.

    From JQ "We completed a FULL CAPACITY run of Conductus wire in our pilot equipment with over 90% of the output performing at an average of 350 amps per centimeter (A/cm) width. "

    Since the full capacity of their machine is 100 meters, that is direct evidence contrary to the IDIOTIC LYING TROLL's statements.

    So again we see how it is he who is being totally deceptive and clearly the liar and a crybaby liar at that!

    Gosh this is so much fun. I get to illustrate what a dunce and a liar he is and have fun doing it! LOL! LOL! LOL!

    A question from William Lap" (labeledas unidentified analyst

    Unidentified Analyst
    "Okay. The next question is on those 24 strips you delivered to that cable manufacturer, are you doing that still or are you holding not off on that because of these others that you needed to one time last year, you’re going to deliver those 24 strips?"

    Jeff Quiram
    No that’s definitely on our -- that's definitely one of the consumers of wire off of our machine. And I think we’ve talked about it in the past. I think we were really close to having that at one point in time. And then this goes back to the kind of the finishing layer issue. And so you have it and then the finishing layer isn’t quite what you need and so then you don’t have it, because it is not like you just tweak the wire that you already had; you start over. Right?

    Unidentified Analyst
    Okay.
    Jeff Quiram
    So, now you need to get those 24 strips off the machine again and they need to be consistent and then you got get the next finishing layer. And so that’s the challenge. It’s not like you look at it first time and say that was a quite right, let’s do another finishing layer, let’s just redo the finishing layer, well you can’t.
    I mean we’ve got one shot at just putting layers on the stuff. If it’s the way you want it, then great. And if it’s not, then you start over. I mean that’s the nature of the beast.. Frankly that’s why this is a difficult business, that’s why it’s I think challenging for some that don't have a repeatable process. At the same time, my belief is that once you figure out exactly what that process, what that recipe is and exactly what it needs to be, our manufacturing process allows us to -- the part that we control, we can dial it in and do it consistently. And we’re working WITH PEOPLE on these finishing layers. And I think once we know exactly what that finishing layer is going to be, THEY'VE shown the ability to replicate it and be consistent as well."

    continued from previous post"

    More from the 2Q August call: These are from locations scattered throughout the transcript. IN all cases it is JQ who is speaking:

    "Well I think the biggest thing we have really been struggling with is as we continue to tweak the recipe for them primarily on finishing layers, that requires us to produce more wire to do that and we really we just can’t get enough wire out of that pilot machine."

    "Yes. So, I mean every application is a little different. So most of them need some amount of silver, some need thicker silver than others and then some also need another finishing layer over copper. And they need those in varying thicknesses, based on whatever their product requires.
    So, it's that sort of thing, and then they all have their own individual mechanical requirements. And then all that. So every time you put a different layer of something on, you need to bring it in, you need to test it to make sure it meets all the mechanical requirements.

    And so, it's just a, it's a little bit of an iterative process to get it nailed down and that's what we're going through with several of these guys."

    Ah the UNMASKED IDIOTIC LYING TROLL once again gives me the opportunity to illustrate his IGNORANCE, HIS STUPIDITY AND HIS LYING DECEPTIVENESS ! Let's first look at his original statement where he attributes the failures to STI: "The cable demo wire was produced, but had to be scrapped, due to the cap layer..." Note "the cap layer"...

    I love the way you used ellipsis to avoid providing the full description from the STI website. It is a perfect illustration of your dishonesty! Here's the complete description from their website:

    "Subsequent to the RCE-CDR superconducting growth, a cap layer of silver (or copper depending on the application) of 1-50µm is applied in-situ to protect the wire. IN SOME APPLICATIONS ADDITIONAL CAP LAYERS (note the plural-meaning more than one) MAY BE ADDED, INCLUDING COPPER, SILVER OR BRASS."
    So we can see from STI's description there can be several "cap" layers. You will see a similar statement on SuperPower's website also.

    So are we to believe that the "unmasked idiotic lying troll" does pay attention to STI quarterly calls?

    From the 1Q call in May: "...the PROTECTIVE LAYER they want to put on the wire before they put it in their cable, which is again kind of outside of what we do. So we’re working with them just to say okay while you need THE PARTICULAR CAP LAYER let’s make sure exactly what that is and then we work WITH THE FOLKS THAT ACTUALLY DO THAT FOR A LIVING, uh, just to get that done. But as far as the pieces we built internally we’re done with that and now we’re working through these other issues with them." (From my corrected version of the transcript which was originally very bad).

    From the 2Q call earlier this month:
    "...Well I think the biggest thing we have really been struggling with is as we continue to tweak the recipe for them primarily on finishing layers, that requires us to produce more wire to do that...."

    Funny you calling me a liar when you have been proven to be such over and over. You keep making that claim but can't provide any PROOF only your unsupported or disproven claims.

    So Yes I can and I already have provided the facts that support that statement as you well know! The evidence is in the published data sheets of their competitors. I can't help it if you can't comprehend simple factual numbers. And as usual your opinion, which YOU NEVER BACK UP WITH FACTAL EVIDENCE isn't worth a darn thing!

    BTW thanks for proving you are just another of my dummy puppets. I knew that reference to you would draw you out! LOL! LOL! LOL! I do love playing you!

  • Lots of 100 share trades bringing down the price. I guess they are trying to protect their short interest. MDB capital is probably the principal instigator. They have done the same with STI (aka SCON) the company that created the RESN technology.

    Well I still believe that the "witness" that STI found and testified to have seen someone at a conference in Spain 10 years earlier was bogus and it was that point that sold the jury. That was the foundation for the Judges decision, given the jury's decision, to invalidate the patent. That was simply a matter of law. Had the jury not believed that witness, then ISO would likely be around today as a public company (they still are as a private company owned by the old creditors) and both CDTS and STI would have gone under. Remember, ISO saw the handwriting on the wall regarding the future of HTS filters and went off in a different direction.

    Morons and frauds, like the unmasked idiot lying troll and the "fool" can never sustain their lies. I have forgotten all the mindless slammers (e.g. harrisjohn19) who tried to take me on and eventually ran away to hide forever, or return under a new alias only to again run away in shame.

    It's gotten easier for a couple of reasons. First of all, STI has finally gotten into a business where they have the potential to succeed, so I no longer have to be so strongly critical and bear the wrath of uninformed investors in STI. History has proven me right about what STI was doing. I predicted the outcomes and they happened. Secondly, the latest group of bashers are particularly pathetic and stupid. They make it so easy to prove and illustrate what they are and what they are attempting to do. And it is such fun too! LOL! LOL! LOL!

    So here is an example of his lies and distortions.
    "The pilot 100m RCE-CDR machine is now capable of producing 50m lengths after about 2-years of tuning."

    From an STI PR of 21 Feb 2013: "The RCE-CDR system, delivered in December 2012, has been installed with first process run completed in February 2013." Feb 2013 was roughly 18 months ago...Not "about 2 years". And the fact is that he has absolutely no evidence that STI has not produced longer lengths. He's basing his statement on the longest lengths made public, but he expresses this supposition as a fact....which makes it a lie! In any event it is irrelevant because the material they have produced is of high quality and has a Critical Current of 500 A/cm-w or more which is at least 3 times better than any of their competitors!

    Here's another lie "The cable demo wire was produced, but had to be scrapped, due to the cap layer,.."
    First of all it was not a "cap layer", it was a "protective layer" applied after the standard encapsulation was placed around the entire wire. The protection layer is a "non standard" material and STI had to use a 3rd party. You can be sure that STI produced encapsulated HTS wire that met the customer specs BEFORE it went to the 3rd party vendor for application of the "protective layer" This topic is explained in detail in both the May 2014 and the most recent August teleconference transcripts. The LYING TROLL" would have you believe these are STI failures but they are not...

    IT IS MOST IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT, NOTWITHSTANDING THE DELAY'S, THE CABLE DEMO CUSTOMER IS STILL WORKING WITH STI TO GET THE MATERIAL THAT WILL WORK FOR THEIR PROJECT.... THIS IS AN R&D EXPERIENCE FOR BOTH COMPANIES... MAKING THINGS THAT THEY OR ANYBODY ELSE HAS YET TO ACCOMPLISH. The unmasked idiotic LYING TROLL apparently doesn't have a clue about high risk R&D activities. STI has over 20 companies working at various stages to get HTS wire from STI that will work in their product and more arrive over time

    Ah the UNMASKED IDIOTIC LYING TROLL makes a reappearance. He relies on those posts where he has been proven to be a total liar and idiot to scroll way down before he reappears.

    I didn't just "fail" to mention the "other company".
    they weren't named because it wasn't relevan, just as you are not relevant to mention when I talk about idiots and slammers! Since you weren't around at that time and you were probably in elementary school then based on your behavior now, you don't have a clue about what I posted back then, other than what you can see on this board. None of those posts would be considered "pumping" even to a demented soul like you! You are just being adolescently vindictive.

    The truth about the unmasked idiotic lying troll is that he was an STI investor and was very happy until the r/s took place. Because of his own ignorance/stupidity, he didn't take precautions to protect his investment and I can only presume he sold out at a great loss... tough doodoo! Since then he has become a whining crybaby lying about and distorting STI statements. A simply search on the term "unmasked idiotic" will give you many posts where I expose his lies and distortions, just like I will do on his second post today.

    You will be able to see his true character and then you can simply place him on "ignore" and you won't be bothered with the drivel he posts.

    I don't recall what the largest market cap was as I wasn't interested in investing when their focus was on Wireless base station filters. Although I have followed the company for about 15 years now, in the early days it was because they were a competitor to another company I followed and had to put up with the BS of investors and slammers from STI regaling the other companies board with their bulldung. It's only in the last couple of years that I have thought that STI could pull off this new direction and use for their technology. I think they are at the 45 yard line and need to get that touchdown... field goals won't hack it.
