You do. You should have access to the MW now.

I'll sort out the files into my folder later this evening.

Thank you, Jo.

I have the MW updated.

I do have a few issues with the existing files. The soloist was on the new side and seemed to have been having problems with noise cleaning.

0 - Introduction by Franklin K Mathiews 2:54 Fails checker for background noise. File name campfirestories_00_mathiews_128kb should be campfirestories_00_various_128kb

1 – Chapter 1: Silverhorns by Henry van Dyke 34:57 - Passes checker but first 6 minutes were not noise cleaned. 2 second opening silence. 10 second ending silence. File name campfirestories_01_vandyke_128kb should be campfirestories_01_various_128kb

7 - Chapter 4: The Ole Virginia by Stewart Edward White 13:47 - Passes checker but only ending silence was noise cleaned. File name campfirestories_04_white_128kb should be campfirestores_07_various_128kb

8 - Chapter 5: The Weight of Obligation, part 1 by Rex Beach – I am unable to find this file in the abandoned folder. Both 04 and 05 are the same recording.

Is it acceptable for me to do the noise cleaning? If so, I can correct the file names at the same time and upload to your folder so you won't have to transfer the files.

Since this is an abandoned project, you can go ahead and do what is needed to the files. I've moved them to my folder and updated the MW. Section 5 does not seem to be anywhere on the server.

Hi Linny,

could I pick up sections 2-5 the Zane Grey stories? Sounds like fun

Actually, it should be ‘various’. I need to update the initial post. Thank you for the reminder and the section. I’ll put you in for PL. How long is the section?

Let me know if you want to read another story here.
