Yes, Fannie, I'm Greek and I live in Thessaloniki! :D


Hi Malone! Sections 10 and 11 are PL OK! There are some inconsistencies in the ID3 tags, but those can be adjusted at cataloging.


Hi Morgan! Sections 16 and 17 are PL OK! Well, section 17 has 10 seconds of end silence and it's a bit shorter than 30 minutes, so I'm not sure how strict in length this ending silence should be...

Hi Rapunzelina!

What is the weather like in Thessaloniki? It's freezing here in London.

Can we ignore the extra five seconds?

Hi Morgan! In Thessaloniki it's very, very, rainy!

I suppose we can ignore the extra 5 seconds; it's so close to the 30-minute mark. Leni will confirm (or disconfirm) when she gets the chance.

Hi Rapunzelina,

Nice to meet you. Can you tell me how you picked your nickname? Do you happen to have gorgeous long hair and a cute short size? If so, I envy you for I am very tall. When I was a girl the boys on the street teased me by calling me "White Tower" !... :wink:

Bye for now. I got work to do.

Rapunzelina, great to have you as DPLer, thanks!

Morgan, I think we can ignore the five seconds! :D

And please send some rain and/or snow, it's ridiculously hot here in Vitória, Brazil. I am longing for winter. :|

Thank you Leni!

Each thing in its own time! You'll get the rain eventually! :mrgreen: Does it ever snow in Vitória?


Hi Fannie! What an amusing story yours is :D (you could answer "yes, I'll lock you up and tooooorture you!" :shock: :lol: )
I'm actually moderately tall and had rather short hair when I got the nickname (more like the brunette short-haired rapunzel in the latest disney film), but I got the name when my friend started calling me Rapunzel after he heard this song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-xlgs_6NF5I

It is 30 mins and 26 seconds long.
Great, Morgan!
2 points I'd like to mention, but nothing serious:
- around 18:17 text is "In the year 1106, it was for the second time injured by fire, but repaired before 1116," which 1116 was read as 1016 and the math didn't add up :mrgreen:
- End is currently "End of Section 21", maybe it should be "End of Chapter 8, part 1", for consistency with the rest of the project?

Hello Alan! A marvelous recording! I'll mark it PL OK in the magic window, but I'll mention an optional edit, in case you think it's worth it :)
at 21:08 a slight stumble that could be edited out: "enth- enthroned above ten"
