I was just working with this chip - actually the MOC3083, just differnent
isolation, trigger current . . .

Anyway, I have several left, and I could try hooking them up to an ignition
coil or firing coil for a xenon tube to see how reliably it could trigger
them.  I'll let everyone know the results . . .
