This self-isolation thing has its (extremely limited) perks.

Ah yes, the days of yore. I remember them... somewhat well!

Section 3 is PL OK, thanks!

Yes it is! For so many reasons, we need more stories about kindness and self-redemption.

Very impressive parrot work, there.

Thanks. My gibbon vocalizations have also been well received.

I may have accidentely over-compressed this file. What do you think? Too late to fix but would like to know your opinion.

Regards,

Adrian

Hi!

I can hear a slight difference in compression, but nothing objectionable.

This file is PL OK, but it contains Chapters 8 & 9 - we appear to have skipped Chapter 7. As it's relatively short, perhaps you'd like to append that to Chapter 6?

How’d I do that? I’ll fix it one way or another. Thanks.

Fixed! Thanks for spotting this.

Section 05 is now Chapters 6 +7.

The section is 33:35 in total. Chapter 7 begins at 21:22. Voice sounds a bit different due to hay fever -- I haven't had my shots in 2 months.

Happy to help.

Sections 5 & 6 now marked PL OK, Chapter 7 sounds fine!

I took the liberty of updating the MW to remove the now-doubled entry for Chapter 10 and moved everything up one slot, keeping your text divisions.

Hope your hay fever isn't too troublesome - I'm looking forward to the next one!
