Thanks, Pete!

Everything is ready. Over to you, Tricia, and as soon as it catalogues, the cover will be ready too. :thumbs:

Any idea why the run times might be off on some of these? For example:
Section 8. MW: 50:54, Archive: 51:16.
Section 10. MW: 21:24, Archive: 24:09.

Many before this point are up to 5 seconds off, which I don't know whether to worry about or not. I'm still working through the section times. I'll post if there are any others far off like section 10.

Edit: two others to check:
16: MW has 40:30 vs. Archive 40:48
41: MW has 31:45 vs. Archive 30:28

Please let me know if these 4 sections are OK as downloaded from the MW. The run times in the MW aren't important; I just need to know that the files are OK.

Cooking dinner can't do this tonight. Will attend to in the morning.

I uploaded a more current version of 16. Great catch! Thank you, Tricia. All the others are the latest version, just forgot to change the times in the MW. Please let me know of any more discrepancies.

Tricia, I added up the total time to be 25:41:41, rather than 01:36:59
I've run into this before where the automatic time adder doesn't seem to work right after 24 hour mark is passed. Have you noticed that? Is it just reporting the overage? Well, that would still be off by 5 minutes. HMMMMM.

I had adjusted it before, but it reverted for some reason. I didn't have an easy time with cataloging this project, so it doesn't surprise me that there was an error fixed-but-reverted. :roll:

Fixed now - again. :)

You edited as I was replying.

It didn't calculate the change in that last file - section 16, I think it was - which is probably where the minor (less than 24 hour) discrepancy was.

EDIT: but that was less than a minute. Which numbers are you adding up?

Regardless, I don't think it's important that it's correct to the minute.

Thank you to the whole team who helped pull this big book together and take this 5 month ride with me. I am very well pleased with the outcome. As soon as the cover is linked up, the project will be done.
:clap: :clap: :clap:

Now we're off to our next adventures. Hope to see you around the LV playground. :D

Just noticed this question. I used the online time calculator here, and used all the file times listed on the catalogue page.
