RE: nitrogen laser triggered gap

Original poster: "Colin Dancer by way of Terry Fritz <twftesla-at-qwest-dot-net>" <CMD-at-dataconnection-dot-com>

The book I was thinking of was Strong's "Procedures in Experimental
Physics".  It covers a wide range of practical lab techniques and if you get
a chance at a hardbound copy is well worth having.  All the chapters of the
book are on the CD including diagrams, but they are indexed according to the
chapter title.  Try doing a search for "John Strong".



	I couldn't find any mention of Strong in connection with the CD, but
also couldn't open the particular URL you send and had to go to their
home page.  The CD copy I bought sure doesn't have Strong on it, so must
be an offer of a reprint.  Since Lindsay is asking $25.95 for his
reprint, that would be a very good price for the combo.  Amazon is
selling the CD for $39.95, but without the book.

	The complete name of Stong's book is:

	"The SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN Book of Projects for

First published in 1960.  I hate to admit it, but I was about 34 when I
bought my copy of the original edition when it first came out.  No
mention of Tesla coils in it anywhere.

	Anyone who doesn't have Strong should buy a copy at once!  I have
copies.  First one was bought at the Caltech book store in 1947, and the
second one for a couple of bucks at a swap meet a few years back.  Much
easier to go ahead and pay Lindsay than look around swap meets or garage
sales.  In today's dollars it's a lot cheaper than the original was.
