This is true...

Im somewhat aware of Marks work... but it seems as im finding out im not 
being truly innovative in any manner... just that others have not been well

Yeah... thats starting to happen here as well.  Dan McCauley has been 
looking for SSTC history and indeed others have done similar to what i have.

Agreed.  but...

IF people had done such things in the past, why is it that people are 
amazed when these new SSTCs are more efficient at making long sparks that 
spark gap coils???  I mean... SOMETHING is different here ;).  Did the 
technology exist 10 years ago but somehow was forgotten?  I dont think 
thats possible with such a tight group as the TCML and coilers in general.

I also must note that when i claimed to be the inventor of the *ISSTC* i 
simply meant to clarify because it is MY coil that has sparked Dan Ms work 
that John Cooper was then refering to.. not really to make a bold claim of 
originality.  Still, point well taken.
