On August 7th 1974, a young Frenchman named Philippe Petit stepped out on a wire illegally rigged between New York's twin towers, then the world’s tallest buildings. After nearly an hour dancing on the wire, he was arrested, taken for psychological evaluation, and brought to jail before he was finally released. Following six and a half years of dreaming of the towers, Petit spent eight months in New York City planning the execution of the coup. Aided by a team of friends and accomplices, Petit was faced with numerous extraordinary challenges: he had to find a way to bypass the WTC’s security; smuggle the heavy steel cable and rigging equipment into the towers; pass the wire between the two rooftops; anchor the wire and tension it to withstand the winds and the swaying of the buildings. The rigging was done by night in complete secrecy. At 7:15 AM, Philippe took his first step on the high wire 1,350 feet above the sidewalks of Manhattan… James Marsh’s documentary brings Petit’s extraordinary adventure to life through the testimony of Philippe himself, and some of the co-conspirators who helped him create the unique and magnificent spectacle that became known as “the artistic crime of the century.”

*******www.musicaltales****/helena Fantasy Novel [audio book online] This is the very unique fiction audio book of music composer Stephane Meer. It is a sort of free online manga with a strong music background and lots of pictures of dragons, wolves and fantasy characters. HELENA and the orchestra of the world of mist for Héléne Grimaud On the village street leading away from the school, Sohane and Costia walked together. Helena was on the way home, and Sohane was going to join her horse, “Fire”, who was pastured in a field belonging to Costia’s father. “If you want to know if the electricity works, put your tongue on the wire, and if you turn blue, you know it works.”, Costia said amusingly; “Your jokes are a little tiring”, Sohane answered. Aren’t you ever going to grow up?” Costia took the insult in sulky silence. “Helena, how’s your grandfather holding up?, Sohane asked. “He’s okay I guess, but he hardly says a word. He’s like in a state of shock since my parents disappeared. I think he uses all his strength calling people, trying to speed up the search, waiting for them to come back, reacting to the slightest noise, and all that doesn’t leave him with much energy for anything else.” “Still no word from the police, I guess.” “No. They don’t understand it. There’s no sign, no clue that they were kidnapped, and no motive either. They’re starting to wonder if my folks just took off, and that maybe we’re making everything else up. Since I’m a minor, they didn’t have the right to abandon me, but they could have given my grandfather custody of me. I’m just saying what the police think, because I know that that’s impossible. I spoke to them the night before. I went to bed, and during the night, I heard shouting. I went downstairs, and they were gone. All their stuff was still in the house. They couldn’t have left on their own like that. It’s absolutely impossible”, Helena said in total frustration. “I know exactly how you feel. I know your folks. Everyone around here likes them. I’m sure they had some kind of a problem and they can’t get home. There’s got to be an explanation, and things are bound to work out. Anyway, just remember that your parents love you, and that they would never just leave you like that of their own free will. I know it’s hard on your grandfather and on you, and if there’s anything I can do…” “Thanks, Sohane. It’s really nice to know that you’re there?” “Hey, what about me? I’m here too, you know, although maybe you didn’t notice”, complained Costia. “Oh, poor little ignored Constantine”, said Sohane mockingly. “Thanks, Costia. I know you’re both good friends. I don’t know what I’d do without you.” Fantasy Novel [audio book online]

I was having the "bad motivator" problem which is commonly caused by crumbling wire insulation. After opening it up, I was able to confirm the crumbling wire. The exposed wire portions are crossing each other when the robot walks and bends over, which causes the robot to either stop or shut off. My camera is a little junky, but watch the end of my screwdriver and look for the copper colored spots on the wires (these are the spots where the insulation has crumbled off).

THIS IS A VIDEO TO SHOW THOSE WHO DONT WANT TO SPEND A LOT OF MONEY FOR THE BIG SYSTEMS OUT THERE. THE BLACK UNIT IN THE BACK GROUND IS THE ONE THAT IM MAKING FOR A FRIEND WHO WILL USE IT WITH GREAT GLADNESS. HIS ELECTRICAL SYSTEM WAS ALMOST COMPLETELY DESTROYED BY LIGHTENING. IT WOULD COST TOO MUCH FOR REPAIRS AND NEW DEPOSITS AND OLD BILL TO RECONNECT, ESPECIALY WITH REPAIRS FOR A NEW SERVICE BOX AND UPDATING TO A BREAKER SYSTEM AND THE WIRES DESTROYED IN THE HOUSE. ALTHOUGH THIS UNIT WILL NOT NORMALLY SUPPLY A NORMAL HOUSE HOLD IT WILL ALLOW HIM TO HAVE LIGHTS , RADIO, TV , CELLPHONE CHARGING, AND A FEW MORE THINGS BUT NOT ALL AT ONCE OR CONSTANTLY. BUT 20 DOLLARS A DAY FOR GAS IN A GENERATOR IS NOT AN OPTION EITHER. A BAG OF ICE, AND A COOLER IS. WE ARE MAKING A SOLAR HOT WATER HEATER AS WELL. BY 1:00 PM HE WILL HAVE ENOUGH WATER TO DO DISHES AND GET A NICE HOT SHOWER. THEN RELAX BY THE TV OR RADIO FOR A FEW HOURS ON STORED ENERGY. THEN GO TO SLEEP WITH A SMILE. IF HE GETS UP IN THE NIGHT HE CAN JUST TURN ON THE LIGHT. AND ITS ALL FREE. I HAVE ONE CONFESSION TO MAKE ABOUT THE ONE IN THE FIRST VIDEO THAT EVERYONE HAS COMPLEMENTED ON FROM THE BEGINNING. THAT IS , THAT THE ONE THAT IS IN THE VIDEO IS THE 7th OR 8th ONE I DID. I DID IT FOR SOMEONE ELSE BUT I DESTROYED ONE OF THE COIL SETS IN IT BY PULLING ON THE WIRES TO HARD WHILE I WAS RETHREADING THE WIRES TO COME OUT THE OTHER SIDE. BUT THE 12 VOLT SYSTEM INSTEAD OF 24 VOLT SYSTEM WILL NOT SLOW THE BLADES DOWN WHEN UNDER A LOAD SO IT PERFORMS AT ITS LOWERED MAXIMUM VOLTAGE MOST OF THE TIME. IT SEEMS TO KEEP MY SHOP RADIO AND FLOURESENT LIGHT GOING AS MUCH AS I NEED IT TO EXCEPT FOR WHEN IT RAINS AND THE WIND DOESNT BLOW FOR A FEW DAYS. ONE OF THE CEILING FAN MOTORS I HAVE IN THE SHOP WILL REPLACE THE ORIGIONAL U2B DEBUTED SPECIAL WITH MORE MAGNETS AND TWICE THE COILS FOR MORE OUTPUT. THE BLACK ONE IS CRANKING OUT 5 TIMES THE POWER ALREADY, IM JELOUS. AND IT COGS REAL HARD. AND WHEN YOU SHORT THE WIRES IT GETS REAL HARD TO TURN. THAT IS A GOOD TEST OF EFFICIENCY. ANY DC OR AC PERMANENT MAGNET MOTOR THAT YOU CAN SHORT THE WIRES OUT ON AND IT DOESNT WANT TO TURN IS A DARNED GOOD WIND TURBINE. IF WE ADD ANOTHER SET OF MAGNETS TO HIS IT WILL DUOBLE THE VOLTAGE AND WE WILL HAVE TO GO TO A HIGHER VOLTAGE BATTERY BANK WHICH IS GOOD SEEING AS THE COILS CAN ONLY PUT OUT 1 AMP PER SET. THERE ARE 2 SETS SO 2 AMP TIMES 48 VOLTS = 100 WATTS SO IF WE ADD THE MAGS IT WILL BE A 200 WATT UNIT WITHOUT HEATING UP THE WIRES BUT WE WILL HAVE TO GET 7 OR 8 BATTERIES. OR AT LEAST 4 OR 5 . TIME WILL TELL. MUDD
