This chapter has been produced using a different video software program, Openshot. This is an improvement for me because it allows a video preview synced with the audio. Previously I've always had to calculate the start and end times for clips by following the text while playing the audio in audacity. This program also allows me to combine video clips with still images. Technically I could do that with PiTiVi but the results often failed during export. Anyway, chapter 31 is Mark Twain's visit to Pompeii. I've used the illustrations from the book, The Oxford Edition, images from Wikipedia Commons as well as some screen capture clips from the Second Life reading. There were a number of additional Commons images that would fit with this chapter but I've left them out so that it could retain a general audience rating on YouTube and on Blip.tv. Pompeii is known for the erotic images painted on some of the walls.
