I'm hoping it will serve as a substitute for a personality.

Soon as it's here and I've had my pacemaker shielded, I'll plug him in (ships are shes, TCs are hes) and upload the results.

This might do likewise, a recreation of a century-old meeting between Tessla, Edison, and J.P. Morgan (Orson again) presiding over the fate of the Tessla's newly-invented AC motor. I wonder if this is - ultimately - why the current J. P. Morgan runs and controls the Central Bank of Iraq (for the benefit of the advancement of science and the people of Iraq, of course, where Tesla coils are now abundant but electricity is a novelty):

It runs at 110V so now I need to buy a suitably monstrous step-down transformer. Yippee.
