Re: [SOLO] Young Folk's Treasury V6 Famous Travels & Adventures - mas

Betty,
On section 20, please check for a repeat of "presents at its surface" at 1.22.

When we were climbing the mountain, and he was hanging by the rope, and then looking down the sheer rock face, I felt a bit dizzy. Very well written and read.

Re: [Biography] Lincoln, the Lawyer-mas

Thanks Larry. Changing versions can be quite a hassle. I'm still looking for things in the menus . . . why did they have to move them around?

Re: [Biography] Lincoln, the Lawyer-mas

Thank you Larry! Your reading is great. Your technical specs are a little bit off though. The bit rate should be 128 kbps, yours is 64 kbps. The sample rate should be 44,100 Hz, yours is 8,000 Hz. For instructions on how to change this in Audacity for future recordings, please go here (there’s also ...

Ricarda - that sounds great. I've added you to the MW.

Ava, sorry, I see now that you included the description when you posted your section. My mistake. :oops: Thanks for repeating it for me.

Maria,

I think that looks fine. It's a good tie to the end of the war.

Re: [Multilingual] WWI Centenary (Armistice Day) Prose Collection Vol. III-mas

Hi there! I'd like to do a reading of Democracy vs Autocracy, a comparative study...it looks like a pretty interesting suggestion, political science in the midst of the war itself - tremendous find! I think I'll start with the preface and Chapter 1, and I'll post again if I like how I'm reading it ...

Re: COMPLETE [Solo-Span]David Copperfield/Charles Dickens-mas

OK, I have the files fixed, and the summary.

Next I will recalculate the time and the size of the zip file.

Re: COMPLETE [Solo-Span]David Copperfield/Charles Dickens-mas

I don't think so.

Sections 44 and 46 (plus 53, 55 and 65) are twice in the black box at the top of the Archive page.

I am going to an appointment this morning. I will check again this afternoon and work on it a little more.

Too many files is better than missing files!
