    Our son built his mom (i.e., Mrs. H) a new bookcase and printer table for Christmas.
    We needed an additional bookcase and my dump-find printer table would wiggle so much when the printer was active that I figured it was just a matter of time before it collapsed! :o

    We brought the new pieces home as 'flatpacks' (so to speak) for practical reasons -- and I did the final assembly & finishing. My work was amateurish at best :/ but he's gotten to be a pretty competent woodworker remarkably quickly. :) He's built a bunch of stuff for their (new to them as of late fall '20) house down in VA over the COVID era.

    Well, no one guessed it tonight....so we shall move on...

    Tesla Predicts New Source of Power In Year.” New York Herald Tribune. July 9, 1933.

    Asked how it felt to be so far ahead of his time that he was subject to attacks upon his sanity, Dr. Tesla smiled and said that he has long since ceased to regard it as important.

    “I live a life of seclusion. The opinion of the world does not affect me. I have placed as the real values in my life what follows after I am dead, although it has been given to me to live to see those things which were once scouted accepted as scientific dogmas.

    The thing that recompenses me is that my name shall be known to generations yet unborn for the Tesla Coil, Tesla Motor, and perhaps my name will be connected to the absolutely new source of power I am about to present to the world. It is this thought in which I find happiness and health. A pioneer does not apply his energies in the way the world is going. Rather he goes against the current. He lets them call him a lunatic. He lets them trample him—if I should every tell you the inside story of how I had been trampled—but never mind, it was all good for me. I have come through it. I am able to work harder than I worked a year ago. I work now with greater energy and get results more easily than ever before in my life.

    …After all, they have called me a lunatic before. What is one last time?“

    –Nikola Tesla
