I was hoping Planetspace would get it (and still might? http://spaceports.blogspot.com/2009/01/ ... award.html )

George Bush had no problem giving 1000X that to his banker friends. If a net power device isn't funded soon, I'm going to try and fund it. I recall Tom Ligon saying that there's enough information available on the internet now that anyone with enough determination can probably get up to research par...
