Heh. Uhm, thank you. :oops: I'll transfer that to the other forum. :)

And back to business: Sections 26 & 27 are great, and the title fields now look just spiffing. :)

Wow, you're on a roll, aren't you! Sections 28-31 are PL OK except: would you please check your file for section 28, there seemed to be a long silence at the end, more than the 5s needed. I was streaming the file, though, so maybe it was something wrong with that.

Aha! I had the right amount of silence, but I had a little smidgen of silence further on, so the program filled in the silence. Re uploaded.

I'm so enjoying your reading of this book! I have a deep interest in tall ships and this book is a classic and I read it years ago, but I forgot how much information it conveys. I have listened to your version of chapter 3 three times now. I love it.

I'm new to this site and haven't had a whole lot of interest in recorded books in the past but after having listened to 4 chapters of "2ybtm", I wanted to say what a great job you've done. Your delivery is great!

Thanks -

Gesine, I have Chapter 18 part 1 & 2 in the bag, just have to do more editing. I shall try to record more asps, but I shall have to wait a few days due to a head cold, which is semi-miserable, but I've had worse.

So sorry for the late reply. Your cold seems to be better as you've posted two sections! Downloading for PL.

Section 19: PL OK.

Section 20: a couple of edits needed:

1:39 Repeat: and were returning
10:48 Repeat: plunging and rising in the air
11:06 Repeat: and taking them on their heads

Gesine, I have misplaced my copy of Two Years Before the Mast. I am going to try and borrow the same edition from my library, but I thought to let you know. Also, I've discovered my copy has the chapters titled; the version online with the same text just has the numbers, but the other version has chapter titles. Now, I think I cleared reading the chapter titles when I started, but I can't remember. Do you think this is O.K?
And another problem for my long-suffering MC and PL. I am terrible at keeping the ID3 tags chapter section consistent. Comes of having such a long space in between recordings.


Slowly but surely. I am now 76 Percent completed!

PL OK! I think reading the chapter titles would be okay... You should make sure you're reading from a version that's in the Public Domain consistently, though - so better to use the online version than a paper copy, unless you take the trouble to compare the two (or unless the paper version is in the PD as well).

I have not abandoned this project, real life just got a little hectic. I have a couple more chapters one the way.
