YAY 8-)

BTW... I have Chapter 4 about 95% recorded, but I'm waiting for some possible pronunciation help (from the HELP forum) with Mrs. Barrett's Welsh accent.

Here is Chapter 4, mangled Welsh accent & all:

https://librivox.org/uploads/rapunzelina/beckoningfairone_04_onions_128kb.mp3

Duration 18:58

Inklings of sinister subterfuge and insidious menace... :shock:

N.B.:
At about 16:06, I say "...but at a wooden wall...."
The text says "...but at the wooden wall...."
I noticed this in the final editing. :evil:
But since it doesn't really change the meaning and since I'm lazy whenever possible, I left it as is.

So I watched this on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N5dttZnNPGQ
a "Journey to the Unknown" adaptation of the story, and it did have some humming of the tune.
And I probably got spoilers for the story, or not... I'll eventually see how much it deviated from the original.

It's coming, never fear!
(...or maybe it IS to fear...)
I recorded Parts 5 & 6 some weeks ago.
I am slowly catching up on my editing, for this & other stuff. :mrgreen:

O -- yes, I watched this TV show a little while ago; Gary Lansing is always good, but... this adaptation is so modern.
And there is a Giallo film from 1968 called A Quiet Place in the Country, with Franco Nero & Vanessa Redgrave.
I haven't watched that one yet.
I have a lot of watching to catch up on too. :shock:

&*$@##***!?!?!!!
It won't let me upload!
I get to the uploader just fine, but it won't respond when I click on "add file."
I've tried logging out, restarting this $@&**!@! Mac, etc etc etc... but it just won't respond.
I'll try again tomorrow... the sun'll come out, tomorrow.....

It still won't let me upload!
It just doesn't respond when I try to click on "add a file."
I also just now tried the uploader in another project I have going, and it won't respond there either.
:help:

I don't know what could be wrong and if it's related to Mac. Do you have a different browser to try there? Since I don't have a Mac to troubleshoot, I can only suggest you post in the "Need Help" forum, giving as much information about the problem as possible, mentioning your Mac version, browser version, etc, and what you can and can't do, e.g. you can get to the uploader, but it doesn't respond to "Add Files". Are you able to choose an MC? etc.

So I finally managed to install Firefox as a browser alternative to Safari.
And the uploading worked.
Don't know why all of a sudden Safari is a problem for me; but this appears to have been the problem...
(although Safari still seems to work for all my other stuff on this Mac...)

And so I have just uploaded Part 5:
