Re: SOLO - The Endeavour Journal of Sir Joseph Banks by Joseph Banks - annise

Hi - Section 09 is uploaded for DPLing. https://librivox.org/uploads/annise/endeavourjournal_09_banks_128kb.mp3 16:11.1, 88.8 dB There are a couple of click/pop noises in there that I couldn't get rid of and I didn't re-record the text because that is usually even more obvious (due to a change of vo...

I think it must be very Zen being an albatross on a nest -- except when scratching perhaps.

Re: SOLO - The Endeavour Journal of Sir Joseph Banks by Joseph Banks - annise

7 PL OK. I recall seeing a lot of albatrosses while in NZ. At a nature preserve perhaps. Watching them land was rather amusing. Probably at the Royal Albatross colony near Dunedin. There is a live webcam. https://www.doc.govt.nz/nature/native-animals/birds/birds-a-z/albatrosses/royal-albatross-toro...

Re: Grp/ Fiction The Lady's Mile by Mary Elizabeth Braddon - rap

Hi Gail, no, not much recent activity. But I am not worried. Some projects are slower then others. Everything would be ok at the end. Stav. Hi Again Miss Stav -- I have noticed that projects have their own rhythm. Sometimes they drag along then whoosh! they are finished. I'm good either way. Cheers...

Re: Grp/ Fiction The Lady's Mile by Mary Elizabeth Braddon - rap

Hi Miss Stav -- Just checking in since I haven't had any contact from this thread for quite a while. It looks like not a lot of recent activity. I will keep my eye on it, and have ticked "notify me when a reply is posted" so I should find out if anyone posts more sections for DPLing. (This email may...

Re: SOLO - The Endeavour Journal of Sir Joseph Banks by Joseph Banks - annise

6 PL OK. Amazingly I've never been to South America. Amazingly -- I have -- but it was a work trip and there is a long story around it not suitable for a public forum. But did you marvel at how little they seemed to know about hypothermia? [although I used to take wee Brownies out for winter hikes ...

Hi David - Here is Section 06. Part 1 of January 1769. https://librivox.org/uploads/annise/endeavourjournal_06_banks_128kb.mp3 26:37.3, 88.1 dB A bit more (mis)adventure than the previous sections. Have you been to Tierra del Fuego? You seem to be so well travelled..... Thanks for listening. Gail

Hi Anne -- The Bushfire news is just terrible tonight. Thinking of you and hoping that you and your family and friends are out of harm's way, and well. Cheers Gail PS. A couple of days later. You have been sharing the love (smoke really) with your across-the-Tasman neighbours -- not that we are comp...

Hi David -- Here is Section 05. https://librivox.org/uploads/annise/endeavourjournal_05_banks_128kb.mp3 36:39.7, 88.8 dB I hope it is OK. Florida -- beach or inland? Golf or sand -- or alligators... ??? Some years ago my Dad had a house inland near a small state park (Highlands Hammock) that was ful...

Re: SOLO - The Endeavour Journal of Sir Joseph Banks by Joseph Banks - annise

Yeah. I called my Mum and she was glad to hear from me. She didn’t realise White Island is far from Chch. We have more respect for geology than to wander around on an active volcano although it doesn’t stop us from walking around the alpine fault line, which is overdue. Perhaps that’s a bit silly. N...

Re: SOLO - The Endeavour Journal of Sir Joseph Banks by Joseph Banks - annise

Hi - Thanks for the opinion on Mss. That is what I have used -- but it is confusing (as in - what taxonomic authority is Mss?). Section 3 has been uploaded. I had to re-record a number of bits and I hope that I didn't produce any duplications when doing so. I did re-listen to those parts. Trouble ar...

Re: SOLO - The Endeavour Journal of Sir Joseph Banks by Joseph Banks - annise

Hi Anne and David -- Here is a rather nerdy question. Starting from October, Banks starts adding Mss as the taxonomic authority after some species names. What I think is going on is that he is citing himself, possibly even this manuscript. For example: "This morn calm; went out in the boat and took ...
