Off-topic: But I think my readers will appreciate this…

While not firearm related, I know many gun enthusiests also have an interest in both technology and history. The link below is an article about very early ‘audio recordings’. It includes a recording of the very first recording by man that is known.

The recording pre-dates Thomas Edison’s and was done by a French man. However, his system only recorded the voice pattern; having no means of playback.  But researches noted the pattern was very similar to modern digital audio wave recordings and reconstructed it. 

Frankly, I just find it neat to listen too. Think of it as the very first “podcast” downloand.
