Re: The Deluge (vol 2) by Henryk Sienkiewicz [HIST NOVEL]-ans

Could I re-upload section 39? While looking at later chapters, I think I made a mistake in one paragraph where I should have used the diminutive 'Sapio' instead of the form used elsewhere, 'Sapieha'. It won't take long for me to fix the error, but I don't want to upload the repair until I have been ...

Here is section 38:

https://librivox.org/uploads/annise/deluge2_38_sienkiewicz_128kb.mp3

Length: 29 minutes and 38 seconds.

It's just short of the 30-minute mark, so I left the required 5 seconds of silence at the end and not 10.

Re: The Deluge (vol 2) by Henryk Sienkiewicz [HIST NOVEL]-ans

While I do the post-production on section 38, may I claim sections 39 to 45 inclusive (i.e. chapters XXXV to XLI)?

I'm also fairly sure that Bogun should be Bohun.

Has anyone here noticed that Jeremiah Curtin avoided translating Jan Skrzetuski's name whenever possible? He is constantly referred to as 'Pan Yan' instead.

Re: The Deluge (vol 2) by Henryk Sienkiewicz [HIST NOVEL]-ans

In section 37, this line appears: The Swedes might return to Jarosław (Yaroslav) by the same road over which they come, but they knew that in that case not one of them would ever see Sweden. I think, but I cannot be certain about this, that this is a fault with the process of scanning the book into ...

Re: The Deluge (vol 2) by Henryk Sienkiewicz [HIST NOVEL]-ans

A note to proof-listeners: When piece 36 is uploaded, this line: With ears thrown back, with eyes bursting out of his bead, with erect mane, he pushed forward, bit, and kicked; is a misprint or an error when scanning the book into Project Gutenberg. The line should be: With ears thrown back, with ey...

Re: The Deluge (vol 2) by Henryk Sienkiewicz [HIST NOVEL]-ans

Section 34, that is Chapter 30, will be ready in about a day. I have to correct seven places where I made minor mistakes and I'll be able to do that when the traffic outside has calmed down.

Meanwhile, may I claim the next four pieces?
They are:
Sections 35, 36, 37 and 38, Chapters 31-34 inclusive.

Re: The Deluge (vol 2) by Henryk Sienkiewicz [HIST NOVEL]-ans

How do I pass a message to Anne concerning the business with the renumbering of section 28? There is an 'anne' in the database of members, but that is someone who was last active six years ago, and there isn't a user with the name 'anise' either.

Re: The Deluge (vol 2) by Henryk Sienkiewicz [HIST NOVEL]-ans

Sorry about that. Here is the correctly named file:

https://librivox.org/uploads/annise/deluge2_32_sienkiewicz_128kb.mp3

Have I now broken something regarding the numbering of the real file 28? If so, is there a way to fix it?
