I'm really enjoying reading your blog, looking at your photos and listening to you reading Mark Twain. Your intelligence really shines through!

I have reworked the video for this chapter. I've become more unsatisfied with my reading but I don't have the time to re-record it, and I haven't been able to return to Second Life since last October. This chapter now has a single video. Originally YouTube limited the length I was allowed to publish. The video portion was created using Kdenlive but the final audio/video file was made with Open Shot. I had recently been using Kdenlive exclusively but for some reason the audio portion has become distorted during the rendering process.
