Well, this is your red-faced BC :oops: 3

I've been doing this for a long time, and have never fouled up a project like this before.

I think I've got everything where it should be, and I've sent PMs to the people who were affected. I beg everyone's pardon. I've been on the receiving end of this, and I know it's no fun. In spite of it all, I hope we'll have an enjoyable time with this delightful collection of pieces from a world renowned writer.

And, a huge thanks to our talented and dedicated DPL for picking up some of the pieces and getting me back on track. Thanks, Foon. :clap:

If it has not been claimed may I take Section 12?

Thanks!

Greg:

Section 24 is nicely read! I just have one comment.
At 2:07, I hear "Pleiostene", where the text reads "Pleistocene". It's a minor difference, and I wasn't sure if I should mention it, but referring to an ancient period of time doesn't seem like something Wells would have an inaccuracy in.
Foon - Please correct my pronunciation!

Here is the corrected version of Section 24 -

https://librivox.org/uploads/knotyouraveragejo/certainpersonalmatters_24_wells_128kb.mp3

It may be a small error but, I agree, it is not one H.G. Wells would have made.

Run time is now 12:05.

Thanks for catching!

Take care,

Greg
