Hello Anne,

Just a little thing. The link to the uploader just above the user name and password for that isn't a live link. It would save the extra step of going through the "How to upload . . " page if the one on the project page could be made to work.

Thank you
Pattymarie

Here's chapter 2.
https://librivox.org/uploads/annise/historyofengland_02_oman.mp3 Duration 27:48.

It was originally over 30 minutes because I deliberately re-read a part I wasn't happy with. Editing out the unsatisfactory portion reduced it to the current length, but of course I forgot to shorten the silence at the end down to five instead of ten seconds, so I know I have to do that but will wait for your notes, Dave.

All files even those >30m now only need 5s of silence at file end.
19:12-19:14 delete repeat, "In eastern Britain"
26:38-26:39 delete repeat, "But they were not"

We've sort of made it "about" 5 secs . My opinion is that a chapter that finishes with something to think about needs a little more than a good yarn but that's personal opinion

I got nothing when I tried to listen to make sure the edits were there in the last upload, so I'm uploading again.

Still nothing. Very strange. I can't begin to guess what has happened.

I'm going to try uploading chapter 3 and see what happens.

2 PL OK.

Everything seems ok at this end.
edit: There are two copies of the file that were uploaded today so it seems the uploads worked.

Chapter 2 is there for me now, too. It must have just taken some time to settle in.

Hello Annise and Craig,

This is just to let you know I'm not abandoning this. I've had to travel back to the states first for business, then for my father's serious illness, and now I'm heading off to London for a week of teacher training course and another of sightseeing. After my return, I hope to get back onto this.
