I would like to have section 13 A World Hunt for a Filament, please.

I love the story of Edison and now I am caught up on reading, so here I am. I should have this to you sometime next weekend.

Thanks, Melissa

Hope you enjoy.

Did the "outskirts of Dallas, TX" have as much snow for Thanksgiving as Abilene? We go probably 5 inches on Thanksgiving Day.

Justin, I listened to "00-Introduction" It is perfect but has 9 seconds silence at the end. It could be trimmed to 5 seconds. It's a very nice reading!!!

Section 38 is all yours, Esther! Thanks also for the comment on intro. I should still have the uncompressed audio here, and I can trim the end down a bit.

I'd like to read Charpeter 15. Is that okay?
To dream anything that you want to dream. That's the beauty of the human mind.
To do anything that you want to do. That's the strength of the human will.
To trust yourself to test your limit. That is the courage to succeed.

May I also have

42-Appendix XII. The Three-Wire System

44-Appendix XIV. Train Telegraphy

47-Appendix XVII. The Long Cement Kiln

49-Appendix XIX. Edison's Poured Cement House

I am nearing the end of my solo and no one has figured out how short these are. :wink:

Mellisa, since it is on the server, there is no problem with it not being in the window. Sometimes the coordinator gets busy. I'm sure he will be around shortly to update it.

Thanks for the reminder, Melissa. I did indeed get a bit busy and somehow forgot to update the list with the link to the file. It's there now, and I'm downloading it to check the length. That will be posted in short order. Thanks!
