As my motto says, when eating an elephant, take one bite at a time (and make sure you chew it well... :oops: )

Great!

A journey of 1000 miles begins with a single step... ;) Or, in your case, continues with each single step!

That's great!

Except for my veeeeery slow progress, I just remembered that I need to do some changes in the opening of section 2 so the uploaded file is outdated. :oops:

Section 01 is up!

There are a couple of noticeable punch in points, hopefully that's not too detrimental.

You can put me down for section 3.
I know this was a long time ago but there is a tiny problem:
at 3:35 the word "לוי" is pronounced as "levai" while it should be pronounced "levi".
It shouln't be too hard to fix.

The reader for that section hasn't logged in for 4 years, so it probably won't be fixed. If it's not a critical error, we'll just have to call it a human error and leave it at that. :)

Hi,
Just beeping I'm still here, but was unable to record anything, and probably won't be able to record during September.
I apologize for all the delays (health etc.). I don't want to give up yet, but if I see in a couple of months that it's beyond me - I will as gracefully as possible acknowledge my defeat and retreat to my embroidery :oops:

Thanks for the update!

Take your time, and don't worry about the delay. This was sitting in Abandoned Projects forever before you rescued it, so we're just happy you're making the attempt. :)

As long as you update once in a while so that we know you're still in the land of the living, we're happy. :)

Oh, the land of the living... :cry:
I learned this week about Nicholas Clifford (RIP) and took it so badly that I began to cry. I've listened to so many of his recordings and loved them so much that it felt like losing a personal friend. True English gentleman (although he was an American).
A bit touchy now about lands of the living :(

:( I'm sorry to have been (unintentionally) insensitive.

It's me who's over-sensitive. I take things too much to heart.

I really appreciate your patience with me and your encouragement. I know LV is all about volunteering, and people sometimes give up the task they took on themselves. Now that I've recorded some sections (although the text is very difficult, and I sometimes think it might have been be easier for me to record in English than in ancient Hebrew + a sacred text for lots of people so I need to be very particular) I know how hard the work is. Still, when I say I'd do something, I don't want to quit in the middle, and it bothers me when even circumstances beyond my control might jeopardize it. Hence, your patience and encouragement... :) :thumbs:
