Someone posted a subject line saying "Charlie Sheen should read this". I had to laugh! :-) Hate to break it to ya. . . but Charlie Sheen can't put two words together, let alone read them coherently! :-)

woops - 4 was not OK - the bit rate was 112 kbps and we require 128 kbps
I've fixed this file and reuploaded, so it is OK to catalog.
For next time, @johntkucz, just change your export settings. Some wiki pages that may help:
http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/Tech_Specs
http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/Audacity_1-2-3#Configure
If you need more help, please let us know.

Chapter 9 is PL OK.

Well!!!
I certainly thought this was going to be more of a scientific/physiological look at the effects of alcohol instead of an opprobrium of it!

I swear, Charles B. Towns must have never have had a drink. haha! :lol: :mrgreen:

Anyways, here ya go. I felt pace was MUCH more consistent (imho) compared to other recordings. Focused on that intently.
