Hi All

The only shortcoming I have noticed is that some people who really need
advice never get a single reply. If I feel that I have some helpful advice
in such a situation, I reply. But most of the time, I am not sure or just
don't know. I certainly would not want to cause someone to lose their life
or smoke $300 worth of transformers with bad advice. Personally the best
feature of the list is that it has vastly improved my understanding of tesla
coils from the point of view of real world experience.
