Great show as always, very interesting information, but I often have problems hearing what you say-- during the entire segment I had no problem understanding what Chelsea said, and I suspect it may be either the kind of microphone each of you are using, or maybe your respective environments... perhaps you, Nikki, are in a room that provides more echo, and might benefit from some sound-deadening material. Chelsea, were you in a room with drapes perhaps, or some other factor that you think may be of importance?  We all want to hear the webcasts as clearly as possible, and I for one would appreciate any suggestions you might give Nikki to duplicate the same conditions you have when speaking.

I was surprised to receive $2.36 from EVcast via PayPal for making my comments over the last few weeks!  Personally, I think I'd rather let it accumulate until I can use the proceeds to order a Tesla Roadster, although it now looks like that model may be discontinued.  At the current price and the current rate of my activity incentive, I should be able to order my Tesla sometime around 2310 BC, unless of course the list price drops sometime before then.

Thanks so much to everyone for the rich and interesting EV data!
