Congrats to JimG on a project well done!

Last October I was in a local surplus electronic parts store when I ran across a 1.375" x 3.5" 250V computer grade capacitor. Having just built two DRSSTCs I figured it might be cool to build a DRSSTC centered around this small capacitor. I then decided I would challenge myself with a few constraints.

1. The secondary shouldn't be any bigger than the capacitor.
2. The whole circuit should be kept small using SMT parts.
3. It should run off of a single power supply using a wall wart.
4. The interrupter should be on-board and easily updated.
5. It had to produce streamers, not just corona.
6. I wanted it to be a full bridge if possible.
