Todd has no idea, but hopes he can fix it during cataloging....

Thanks, Todd

Lynette, dear saintly Lynette: Please excuse my foundational level of Duffesness in uploading an older file instead of the corrected one. The polite way in which you pointed-out my inattention is noteworthy. Hence that note.

I'm sober now, not that a lack of sobriety contributed to my oversight but I'm trying to put a bit of ego salve on my screwup, and here is the corrected file BUT without the proper naming convention!!! I have renamed the file without that unwanted _ just before the .mp3. It is correct on my desktop. It is correct on the “Get Info” display of the file. It is correct when I select it for the upload. But lo and behold it appears when I upload the file to the server, to wit:
https://librivox.org/uploads/toddhw/bentheluggageboy_01_alger,jr._128kb_.mp3

I hope you can fix it at your end. There is a bewitchment at this end.

It is all of 18:02" duration.

Tommy
Perfect editing of the "motioning," by the way! Ch. 1 PL OK :thumbs:

Here is Chapter 15, length of 12:19.

Sorry about the insufferable _ just before the file type . . . can't get rid the little devil. (Might it be due to the "." after jr?

Behold, I changed the name of Chapter 16 to use a "_" instead of the "." following jr and it did not add the bothersome "_" just before the file type, to wit:
https://librivox.org/uploads/toddhw/bentheluggageboy_16_alger,jr_128kb.mp3

I will also send Chapter 16 with the bloody . so that you have all the files in the same format. Length of Chapter 16 is 12:19.

And here is Chapter 16 with the "." after jr: https://librivox.org/uploads/toddhw/bentheluggageboy_16_alger,jr.128kb_.mp3
Sure enough, the "_" reappeared. Length is 12'19".

According to the Magic Window Chapters 20, 21, 22, 23 are still open. If so, I'd be glad to take them.

Tom, you are a genius! I would never have thought of trying that. Todd, shall we change the files to this format?

Tommy, as you asked first, I will assign all those chapters to you in the MW, but I'm wondering if you mind if we give 20 to jigraves? :)

I think I can make this change when I do the cataloging. Maybe - my computer skills are nil. But I shall try.

Thanks, Todd

OK, we'll drop the jr period from now on.

The initial post still won't let me edit it, Todd - can you go take that . off the jr in the directions for naming the files? Thank you so much. (we need a batting eyelashes icon for begging)

Hello, hypsypops (love that name)

It's not in the MW yet, but Tommy has already claimed that section. If you're looking for something, may I ask if you'd like to do City News Editor, or News Editor Colleague in The Bat? They are just bit parts, but if so, post a reply over there, and I'll assign the role of your choice. :)
