    I've been looking for this for my Mother, as she wants to read it but the length and small print are daunting. This would have to be a monster; 15-18 cds worth?

    It is indeed a monster. 10 files of 65-80 megs each. I can try and get it for you, although I don't know how long it'll take. Probably a while, it's rather rare.

    things are quiet until hitler decides he'd like to invade russia
    so, he does
    the russians are like "OMG WTF D00DZ, STOP TKING"
    and the germans are still like "omg ph34r n00bz"
    the russians fall back, all the way to moscow
    and then they all begin h4xing, which brings on the russian winter
    the germans are like "wtf, h4x"

    MN-
    Don't have any idea what you'd have to go through to do the deed-if there is anything I can do, please let me know.

    I'm aware it's a toughie-I decided long ago it was an important book and decided to scarf up every used copy I ever ran across; that was about fifteen years ago-I have found exactly 3 paperback copies. I got them to give to people I thought would actually read them; I currently have only my original left.

    I am in no huge rush; I already missed her birthday. THANK YOU for your efforts!

    Do you use DirectConnect at all? There's an audio-book hub on it that has one guy with the whole thing.

    Will gladly try in the A.M.-is it easy to find and use?
    I am not familiar with it.

    Better check my supply of blanks!

    Thanks again, MN!

    It's pretty easy to use. I use DC++, which is kinda like K++ for DirectConnect.

    http://dcplusplus.sourceforge.net/

    Then all you need is a public hub list. There's a list of them over on their forums.

    The place you'll want is called "The Secret Garden." If you can't find it, I'll put the address up too.

    DC is dl'd.
    This isn't gonna be as easy as K-Lite, is it?
    I'll commence the requisite reading before I take a swing at Ayn's masterpiece.

    Nah, it's pretty easy. Think of it as a fast eMule. You pick a hub to connect to, and there you are.
