    On the Steorn livestream, I noticed yesterday evening that the image went dark for the first time.
    And today, it is still dark -- the lights are out at Steorn's office:

    Looks like they have closed up shop.

    ETA: Oh, someone just turned the lights on! Everything back to normal :)

    Oh yes there was- quite a well-known docementary maker too -though i forget his name. I saw him filming in London and Dublin on perhaps 3 occasions.

    What you have to remember is that film-making schemes (including personal documentary films) were also great tax-avoidance schemes. The details are too boring to recount.

    As I recall the documentary maker went on holiday. He should be back SooN.

    OK. Perhaps there had been some sort of effort early on. Based on what I know it must have pretty well fizzled out by '07.

    Would that any such documentary had content above the level of the banal

    It could potentially have been insightful and informative.

    It would be a great comedy. Shaun and the lads tinkering with magnets and binge-drinking at the pub. With Benny Hill music.

    And lots of scenes featuring Ogirl. Of course.

    What I wonder is whether Donald Trump is just filming the whole thing for a new reality show. It will obviously have to be more real than the real reality where the stock footage was shot.

    From steornnews.com, yesterday:

    Hi Craig,
    Would you care to comment on the last weeks’ events, or rather the lack of these? I for my part am still waiting for a refund, none of my emails being answered to. Was it really just a scam? Since my decision to order an Orbo was partially based on your coverage, I’d be more than eager to read your current opinion on Steorn.
    Cheers from Joburg,
    Diane


    Hi Diane,
    I’m in much the same situation myself. It seemed that all communication just stopped from them. As you will see from my last post I was eagerly awaiting an OCube and OPhone to start testing them, but I never received them to date.
    I’ve tried to find out what’s happening at Steorn, but haven’t been able to so far.
    Craig


    In NewsEditor's immortal words:
    Bawahahahahahahaaa!

    It's interesting that he showed no reaction to Diane's question "Was it really just a scam?"

    This time, he did not defend Steorn. Looks like he has doubts.

    I doubt that he has doubts, he will stick with them until the bitter SooN!

    I always wanted to know what's holding energy captive.
