Hi all!

:)  I picked up another roll of film today.  I'll have to dig up
the "leaning tower of sundog" if I still have it (i believe so),
and snap a pic.  It was kinda ugly to begin with, but after the
most common mode of failure for me (big sparks, and fire), it got
disgustingly ugly.  Yeah, I got to either find it.  In the good
news, I avoided smokeing a coil tonight, but proved that a 2x9"
form *WILL* put off white hot streamers when pushed at ~2kva
  I also (barring Eckerds screwing up my film!!!) got a good shot
of "why not to touch a streamer"..AKA, a 2x4 on fire from the
output.  The camera was a snapshot, but the arcs had been hitting
the wood for maybe 2-3 seconds.  The streamers weren't that long,
but *very* hot.  The form in the pics is a 3x8 or something, the 2"
form died when I accidentally knocked it over and gouged out some
wires  :(  Not enough clearcoat on that one.
