Yep, these things do fill up quickly. But anyone who missed getting one shouldn't lose heart - there are 284 of these things and they'll fill up 12 volumes. Since we're only on the second volume, there's still plenty of opportunity left to snag a few!

Thanks for moving the thread, Kara!

Well, here are my four. I think the sound quality is pretty good (but that's because I'm using a really good microphone) but my reading skills are pretty rusty. Any feedback would be appreciated.

You know what, though? I really had a lot of fun doing these. I'll definitely do more! :D

Your first recording started out a bit fast, but you seemed to gain a bit more comfort with recording and slow down. Very nice readings! :)

Thank you, kri...

These are my first recordings for LibriVox and I guess I felt a little intimidated. Which is silly, I know, but I really appreciate what everyone does here and I wanted to make something that was worthy of being added to the collection. I did get more comfortable as I redid some items and played around with the files. I'm really looking forward to doing more.

:roll:

You know nothing of the kind, Andy. I worked in Broadcast for many years and the first time you crack the mic at a new place is ALWAYS a "moment of truth". Don't sweat it; we all got a bit nervous that first time, and I include myself in that number.

Having gotten that bit of advice out of the way, let me say that you've laid down some excellent recordings! As kri said, you were a bit quick on the first one, but settled in nicely in the next ones. You might want to make your outro a bit briefer, but that's more a matter of personal taste than of policy.

Thanks a lot for sending these; I'm looking forward to hearing a lot more from you soon!

Thanks Basil! Sorry for deleting the email... sigh. I'm really looking forward to hearing these. At the moment I'm sitting in a training room and can't just download and listen. I'll pull them down when I get home in three hours.

Thanks raynr! I'm downloading it now along with Basil's three. These things take forEVER to move across my modem line, but when they get here I'll post a note. Thanks again!

ChipDoc - what's a 'modem'?? (sorry, couldn't resist - had bottle of wine for lunch, these are the silly after-effects... I'll be posting silly messages all over the forum if someone doesn't stop me...)

A modem is a torture device that emits a high-pitched squawking noise and prevents you from downloading/uploading things as fast as you'd like.

Amen to that, Kara! Everyone's amazed that, since I am a Professional Computer Geek after all, that I don't have a high-speed line. But I live so far out in the woods that I'm lucky to be able to get electric and phone service. There's no cable out here, so I can't get broadband that way. I was hopeful when DSL became available until I learned one discouraging fact:

You have to be within 12,000 (or maybe 15,000) feet of the telephone company's Central Office in order for it to work. I live 83,265 feet away... sigh.

Now there's a new thing offered by Verizon called FiOS which I believe would work out here. Unfortunately it requires a year's contract, and since I'm in the process of selling my house and moving to another state, I can't take advantage of it just now.

Can't wait to move!

Just me Desdemona

I sent the three I signed up for via Yousendit. Did you get them, I noticed that you had accidently deleted some of the other ones you had received, was mine one of them?

Its okay if they were, I have them here on my computer ready to send again. If they need to be recorded over, just let me know and I will do it right away.

Thanks Desdemona! If you just sent them, then I haven't picked them up yet. They arrived at my home email and I'm still at work; I'll find them there in about four or five more hours. But thanks for the heads-up - I'm a lot less likely to delete them by accident since I know they're there waiting for me!

Hey ChipDoc, ever heard of a company called Sanswire?

Google them. What they're working on might interest you.
