My readings may not be as bad as some of my puns.

Dear Jules:

Thank you for Sections 41 and 42; the MW has been updated accordingly. I appreciate your offer to take on additional Sections, but I believe Lezer and I will finish our Sections in the near future - and there are considerable problems with the texts of some of the remaining Sections, as discussed earlier in this thread. If anything becomes available, I will PM you.

Regards,
David

Dear Anna:

Thank you for Section 40: the MW has been updated accordingly.

This now leaves your BC in the somewhat embarrassing position of owing the last three remaining Sections. These were all recorded last night but need editing - I am hoping to finish them in the next couple of days.

Regards,
David

Good :) I'm away abroad for a few days at the moment, so I'm happy that you didn't finish today - or I would have felt guilty for not cataloguing immediately!

Section 33, the last Section, has finally been uploaded as follows (a day late but not, I trust, a dollar short), and the MW updated accordingly:

http://upload.librivox.org/share/uploads/lz/cossacks_33_tolstoy.mp3

14:21 minutes
13.78 MB.

I also downloaded Section 15, corrected the error noted on previous PL'ing and re-uploaded; the file name is unchanged but the details are now:

7:31 minutes
7.22 MB.

I took the opportunity to renormalize the mp3 file, and do volume compression as per my usual practice on my own recordings. I did not perform any additional noise cleaning as the mp3 file was already pretty clean, and was already showing some signs of over-enthusiastic noise cleaning.

Unless of course I need to correct any errors found by PL'ing my own Sections, it's over to you wendeltopper and lezer to finish this project off!

Regards,
David
