Here is a still shorter link.
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/25812011/recording%20presentation.zip

I was right, Dropbox has made its public links much longer than they used
to be.  However, I figured out how to make them as short as they were in
the past.  You can use either this shortest version or the link I sent
immediately before.  both will work.
