Re: [TCML] Need a NY based electrical expert.
Oh, it's not like that. It's just that when a "*requirement*" of a
Masters is needed, it gets almost humorous. The help that was asked was
perfectly reasonable and we understand that. But sometimes analogies
help to get the point across. I've known plenty of engineers with their
Masters, they do have a lot of knowledge, and they have their moments.
But, I've also watched a few try to drill a hole in a piece of metal and
it's sometimes a very scary thing to watch. We need those Master degreed
people, don't get me wrong. But, you don't want a heart surgeon building
your house or a house contractor performing heart surgery. *That's the

I don't get you guys:
A person writes the list asking for the use of a Tesla-coil in their
local area. For whatever reason, there's no coil in the area, or no
one responds, or no one volunteers a coil, so the person asking for
help cluelessly buys what's on the market.
Then, the person asks for someone to help put the thing together...
Hmmm...who would likely be the most knowledgeable person to get help
from? An EE?? No way! Let's get someone with a Ph.D in 14th Century
Florentine funerary urns!
The person's just asking for help. This is the same as a person
asking, "Can I use aluminum wire to wind my secondary?" And everyone
replying, "Aluminum bites!" or "Yeah, aluminum. Heh. Right". Yay,
sarcasm. *Not* helpful.
At least an EE would know who to ask (maybe this list???) or where to
do the research.
I'm a little embarrassed that someone (Zoe Couacaud, a non-tech woman,
I presume) asked the list for help and got this attitude.
(What you're all saying is probably true, but this type of response
would have me abandoning this resource, which would be bad, if I was
in Zoe's situation)
