Sorry for the absence. Just got back from a week-long vacation, and sadly things aren't much more organized now than before I left. I'll try to get some notes out soon to those who still have sections to submit, but if you're one of those, feel free to drop me a PM if you don't hear from me first. L...

Sorry...never got notes out after that last post. I'm scrambling to play catch-up on several things, this included. I'm making some headway, and hope that this coming week will be more productive.

Zoinks! I've been a little behind on things, and nearly let this slip. I'll get some notes out tonight if I can.

Nelly, I've been alerted to a problem with your audio file. It doesn't play for some reason, which leads me to think that your upload might not have been fully successful. Would you mind trying to upload it again? After the upload is complete, please test it by clicking the link you are given to mak...

Thanks for your contribution, Anna-Maria. If you would, could you please tell us the filename that you received after uploading, and the full length of the recording? This info is needed to add details to the magic box for the section. Thanks!

Thanks for the update! I know what you mean by technical. Section 50 takes up 18 pages printed, and I managed to record almost five of them on Saturday. It was...interesting, to say the least. It helps that it's all broken up by year. I just kept telling myself, "One year down...on to the next one."...

Thanks, William. The sound is definitely better, and the levels are improved as well. The only concerns with this recording are the parts between some sentences/phrases where the audio has been completely silenced. It doesn't happen during every break, which leads me to think it's a manual adjustmen...

All right, I'm gonna bite the bullet and take the monster that is section 50. I'll be doing some other recording today anyway, and I'd *really* like to get that section out of the way. As one of my favorite songs says, "I'm diving in, I'm going deep...." :)

Thanks for offering to help, MasonUS, and for providing a test recording. It sounds very good, but when looking at the waveform in Audacity, the audio levels are a little low. Try boosting the recording level on your mic a little bit. You should be aiming to have the strongest peaks in the audio wav...

Oops! Thanks for the heads-up. I just took a quick peek at the last message on the list... Anthony: We'd be happy to have you on the project! Because this will be your first read, it would be really helpful if you could do a quick test recording. It helps to work through any basic issues with simple...

Anna, It's part of the work, so IMO it should be part of the audiobook. Whether or not people actually listen to it is another matter, but I feel that it's important to record everything to be true to the original work. FWIW, we originally had a reader for that section, but I was unable to contact t...

Received a PM from Nelly (nelly_fan) regarding section 15, which she originally claimed. She had already recorded it several weeks ago, but had connection problems getting back to LV. Anyway, I spoke with Jude and he agreed to return that section to her, so the reader list has been updated. Thanks t...

Denny: You've got 27.

Jude: Your recordings are very nice! You have 04 and 15.

Thanks to both of you for helping out! :D
