Scott, Ely,

Remember my old term for the fusor: It is a SPHERICAL ION-DEUTERON ACCELERATOR-COLLIDER. (SIDAC) Tom Ligon and I coined this term about two years ago standing in the dark by his truck as we struggled for a proper complete discriptive for its simplistic thrifty action which sounded more important than fusor.

We do get more for our buck in the fusor.
