Thanks, Camacho.

I converted these lectures into MP3s so I can listen to them on my iPod.

Ermm. Geo. I notice these videos are over 45 minutes long? A five minute one takes all day to download here., and that is only if the electric stays on. I suppose you couldn't share your mp3 with me?

I'm converting the videos to 192 kbps MP3s, so they're about 65 MB apiece. I'll post links to them as soon as I can get them up.

Okayy, here are those lectures in MP3 format.

I've already listened to part of the first lecture and it sounds great. Steven Smith is a very enthusiastic speaker and this seems an excellent way to approach a book like Leviathan. Kudos to Camacho for finding them.

This is great, thanks to Camacho for finding and geo for converting them to MP3s which will allow me to listen to them at work tonite. Makes the assembly line work go by much more easily, and makes personal productivity compatible with monetary productivity. Thanks to both and Happy New Year.
