What you say Bert is all very true. Your many TC postings from the past
are also extremely valuable, well written, and clear. I spoke about
Fr. Tom's work because he was specially working on the "Guide" as he
called it. Of course a multitude of folks have written important and
excellent posts to the list over the years.
Someone mentioned gearing the FAQ towards the construction of
a specific TC design. I like this idea, but the problem is that a
builder might not be able to find the exact components. To solve this
problem, plans for a number of differing TC designs could be presented,
along with the basic theory for those who want it, or want to build their
own TC design from scratch.
