The Great Stone of Sardis by Frank R Stockton - (April 5, 1834 – April 20, 1902).

Quote:
About this title: The home of Roland Clewe, a small house plainly furnished, but good enough for a bachelor's quarters, stood not half a mile from the station, and near it were the extensive buildings which he called his Works. Here were laboratories, large machine-shops in which many men were busy at all sorts of strange contrivances in metal and other materials; and besides other small edifices there was a great round tower --like structure, with smooth iron walls thirty feet high and without windows, and which was lighted and ventilated from the top. This was Clewe's special workshop; and besides old Samuel Block and such workmen as were absolutely necessary and could be trusted, few people ever entered it but himself. The industries in the various buildings were diverse, some of them having no apparent relation to the others. Each of them was expected to turn out something which would revolutionize something or other in this world, but it was to his lens-house that Roland Clewe gave, in these days, his special attention. Here a great enterprise was soon to begin, more important in his eyes than anything else which had engaged human endeavor. . . .

  • Target completion date: 31 December 2009
  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/files/6127/6127-h/6127-h.htm
  • Type of proof-listening required: Standard PL:
    Quote:
    -- Do the intro and disclaimer match the instructions in the first post of the project thread?
    -- Are there any long silences or pauses that ought to be edited out? If so, note the time.
    -- Are there any repeats, or serious stumbles that ought to be edited out? If so, note the words and the time.
    -- Is there excessive background noise, a constant hiss or buzz that detracts from the reading?
    -- Did you need to turn your volume up unusually high to listen to the recording? (Or did you find the recording too loud?)
    -- Are the correct closing words used at the end of the recording, as per the first post of the project thread?
    -- Are there 5 seconds of silence (10 if the recording is more than 30 minutes long) at the end of the file?

    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project will be opened up to a group project as soon as a Book Coordinator can be found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to have it re-instated).

  • The reader will record the following at the beginning and end of each file:
    No more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of the recording!

    Start of recording (Intro)
    • "Chapter [number] of The Great Stone of Sardis. - This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org"
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name]"
    • Say: The Great Stone of Sardis by Frank R Stockton
      [Chapter # - Chapter name]"



    For the second and all subsequent sections, you may optionally use the shortened form of this intro disclaimer:
    • "The Great Stone of Sardis by Frank R Stockton [Chapter # ] This LibriVox recording is in the Public Domain.[/i]
    • If you wish, say:
    • Say:
      [Chapter # and Chapter name]"


    End of recording
    • At the end of the chapter, say:
      End of [Chapter #]"

    • At the end of the book, say (in addition):
      "End of The Great Stone of Sardis by Frank R Stockton "

    There should be 5 seconds silence at the end of the recording, or 10 seconds for files longer than 30 minutes.

  • Example filename
    greatstoneofsardis_##_stockton.mp3

  • Example ID3 V2 tags
    Title: ## - [Chatper title]
    Artist: Frank R Stockton
    Album: The Great Stone of Sardis
  • Instructions for soloist: transfer of files (completed recordings)
    Please always post in this forum thread when you've sent a file.
    Also, post the length of the recording (file duration: mm:ss) together with the link.

Wow, that was fast!! Will you PM the BC password to me. I did that on my last book and it was easy.

I can just put them in there when I am finished each chapter and then when we get a PL they can update once they have done the PL'ing.

Thanks again Lucy, Yes, I am looking forward to working together with you again.

Lucy :D

The same password is used for all your projects that you BC, if you have misplaced it, I certainly can PM it to you again.

Hi Lucy,
Just a quick note so that we keep in touch. I have had some problems and haven't been able to do much with the readings. Will be on to them very, very soon. Almost finished chapter 1 though.

Hope you are well.

Lucy :)

Hi Lucy,
Well, chapter 1 is finished finally!!! I had to ammend the titles because it doesn't allow me to put the full title name on the ID3 tag. So I am just putting "Chapter1" etc.

Hope that's OK.

Hi Lucy,
Just letting you know that I am still here but have been really busy. Been in Shepparton again looking after my sister after surgery.

All good but still have to go there again this weekend for another week. Haven't forgotten my readings but just haven't gotten around to it.

Talk soon
Lucy :D
