They reportedly had difficulty turning on the excess heat in that run. It
would never have risen to 100 deg C without excess heat.

My point about the calibrations may be unclear. When you calibrate a system
like this, turning on the electric heater only without hydrogen in the
nickel, and in various other tests, the presence of a large thermal mass
would be revealed.

That's funny! Phallus indeed. As I said, the calibration would reveal that.
People experienced in flow calorimetry would see it easily.
