Re: the first dissertation about LibriVox is finished!

A wonderful piece of work .... lots of work, too, as all literature-search work seems to be (I remember the enormous amount of time I spent in the library of The London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine for just one short piece of work for a microbiology course)!

Congratulations.

Re: Ad Citations - Pronunciation Help

At a guess, the abbreviations show when a particular paper was published; the last "twtf" being Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, for example.

Re: Do you keep all your audio files?

I'm perhaps a bit extreme: I keep both a flac file and the mp3. The flac file to allow lossless editing, if needed later, and the mp3 to save me the bother of recreating it if I want to listen to it or give it to a friend.

I have plenty of space, as I have a dedicated external hard drive.

No, no, not I!

She has a very similar style to M.R. James; I wonder if James knew these stories.

Re: [SS-GROUP] Stories Weird and Wonderful, by J E Muddock - icequeen

Hello, Ann,
May I claim section 15, A Night with the Dead, please?

The start of the Intro mentions "Story 15", the end of the Intro mention "Chapter 15" and the Outro "End of Story 15" ... should I make them all "Story 15 or are you happy as it is?
