Re: Short Nonfiction Collection, Vol. 065 - jo

Thank you all! I did use the link directly from the DOJ website. I'm in process now and should have them done later today.

Re: Gauging Interest - Mueller Report [LAUNCHED]

I asked a lawyer friend and gave him the example of the clause "see, e.g., Justice Manual (squigglysquiggly) 9-13.400, 13.410" and he said he would pronounce it as, "see, for example, Justice Manual sections nine dash thirteen point four hundred, thirteen point four hundred ten" Also, there are some...

Re: The all-new "HELP! I have an Audacity problem" thread

Quick Audacity question -- I think this is the right place. I was recording yesterday and I hit -- something -- and now there is a lighter colored band in the center of the scrolling window audio track window. These are at .5 and -.5, outside that band and there is also a set of white marks (some ki...

Re: Gauging Interest - Mueller Report [LAUNCHED]

I agree on stating the full tag, or else read it fully for the first time when you encounter it in each chapter and abbreviate after that, because people are going to dip in and out and listen to chapters they are more interested in. Which would be a PITA for the DPL to keep track of and check for e...

Re: Short Nonfiction Collection, Vol. 065 - jo

Off topic but curious—what kind of trial are you on jury duty for? Or is a grand jury session?

I always wanted to be on a jury but having been a crime scene tech and a cop, I always get screened out!

Re: Gauging Interest - Mueller Report

I definitely think redactions should be specified and the reason is technically part of the text and we try to read texts completely. The length is debatable, I would do it if it were up to me because I would be thinking of trying to recreate as well as possible in audio the information you would ge...

Re: Short Nonfiction Collection, Vol. 065 - jo

I have downloaded the Mueller report and am thinking that I would like to record the two executive summaries (there are two volumes and each has an executive summary of a length that will work as a short NF reading). I wanted to 1) make sure that is acceptable as a contribution for this collection a...

Re: Gauging Interest - Mueller Report

I am up for this! I also was thinking of recording just the two executive summaries for the non fiction collection. I am trying to do a quick read through for myself but I keep thinking about how I would read it aloud—emphasis, how to describe redactions etc—and it was slowing me down so much I deci...

Re: [SOLO/HISTORY] The Chronicles of Crime Vol 2 by Camden Pelham - darv

Sorry for the delay! I'm back and hoping to be getting these done at a faster pace!

Section 4 is ready. Fair warning -- there's a section with a graphic description of two different botched executions and it's -- yucky.

Re: [SCIENCE] Worlds Within Worlds: The Story of Nuclear Energy, Vol 1-3 , by Isaac Asimov - jo

At the time it seemed like you were going to re record sections 1 and 2 so you had asked me to hold off on listening to 2 until you figured out if you were going to be able to fix the buzz without re recording.

Great to see you back!
