More Delays, Feed 3 is Live

SeamusF updates us again:

We are experiencing some technical difficulties with the demo unit in London. Our initial assessment indicates that this is probably due to the intense heat from the camera lighting. We have commenced a technical assessment and will provide an update later today.

As a consequence, Kinetica will not be open to the public today (5th July). We apologise for this delay and appreciate your patience.
I find it interesting that while the skeptics just get more skeptical, some of the believers in the forum argue that these technical difficulties show that Steorn is the real deal. I think that's a bit of a stretch! I'll hold off judgment until the dust settles.

Also, Seamus gives an answer to why the demo unit was assembled on site:
SteornSkeptic:Its probably so that they can show videos of everything from the construction phase to a full working prototype in that location.

On a final note, Steorn has updated their website, so now the previously non working links are all functional:

Note that currently, Feed #3 is an actual feed of the demo location, while the others are still Big Ben.
