Hi all. I just love it when AOL sends me a new version of their service
on a CD. I stick em on the top of the Tesla and watch the fireworks!
Love that show! I have never had a CD create any problems with flaking
onto the secondary. Even if there were some flakes, my coil did not
care! It just blasted them out of the way! I never had any problems
with blasting a CD atop my Tesla and rather look forward to the show!
The best one was when we arranged three CD's in a triangular formation
with a beer can in the center as a topload, wow! Good show!
