Several questions/comments:

1. On what basis do you make your claim about the spark length and
efficiency of the CS work?  Where are the supporting data?  There have
been several postings here with regard to the actual spark length, and
there is no data in CSN about the "efficiency", however you define it.

2. What was actually accomplished at Wardencluff (in the way of big
sparks or "efficiency")?  Just looked at Anderson's book and can't find
anything there.

3. Tesla didn't have a PC, but he certainly had perserverence and if you
will read CSN you will find numerous examples of rather laborious
calculations he carried out to find such simple things as primary
inductance.  He clearly knew what he was doing as far as the
mathematical design of the circuit components was concerned.

	Tesla was a neat guy but he wasn't a diety!
