Hello Laurence,
Section 13 is standard PL OK. A number of the equations weren’t correct but if I hadn’t been following along with the text I would not have known.

Ava, I wasn’t able to check specs on this file. I’m hoping to get back to my office tomorrow and will do it then.

If you would like, I can get some of my math friends to read the equations....I know I was way off in my interpretations..... :hmm: There is a Professor here at Kenyon who is a huge fan of Librivox, and would probably enjoy doing it!

Specs for section 13 are PL OK.

As for correcting the math, that's a question for Ava.

Well, it depends on what is wrong - the numbers? The way the equations are read?

I am a stickler for science, math and equations, but it really depends in this case. :wink:

Missing things such as 'the square root of' and 'to the second power'.

I generally follow along with the text but I can't guarantee that I did with all of the readings. If you decide to have the math corrected please update the PL to special so I don't forget to follow the text for future sections.

Here's section 8. This one has no author attribution that I could find, but it certainly seems that it wasn't written by Tesla. The author keeps saying, "Mr. Tesla did this" and "Mr. Tesla said that." If you'd rather not include it in this collection, I can save it for a nonfiction or coffee break collection, no problem.

I really should have paid closer attention to the articles before taking this on... :roll:
I blame the original soloist "Other Works by Tesla" is definitely misleading... :twisted:

It's okay, especially since we have all the sections after this one done; changing the intros/outros would be a pain...

Thank you for your recording! :D
Cheers,
Ava.

Let me think about this for a few days. Especially in a section like this we can assume that there are some people who know the equations by heart and would complain (at least silently) that they are off... :hmm:

Laurence, if you don't know how to read something - you can always ask. I know I look scary, but I rarely bite... :twisted:

Ha ha! You don't look scary! I think I think I will have a math prof read the math, then I will just "parrot it" back into the recording....

Hi there, I am still alive and battling against the knots in my tongue ;) I have a recording but am actually thinking of re-recording it at the moment - too many glitches.
