Tom has a point guys. He's trying to get something done with his idea, and that may take a little time. It's his idea - don't you think he's entitled to handle it how he sees fit? I can understand the frustration that it's been "shown off" while the nuts and bolts have been kept secret, but IMHO, the tone on this thread has become really personal and I can't understand why.
While Tom's lack of detail may be frustrating, he has done nothing wrong. Why not just wait and see where this goes and keep it friendly in the meantime?
Believe me, I'd love to get some details right now so I can figure out if and how this fits into next year's plans, but I understand Tom wanting to have his idea secure before disclosing the details. How we proceed is up to Tom not me, and I respect his right to handle it in whatever way he's comfortable with.
If I wanted a solution "right now" I would take Tom's advice and figure out for myself what I think is the best way to power a PA. But I don't see any reason to push on him to give more detail than he's comfortable giving.
Just my $.02
