Lynett,
I do not have administrative rights to install the Checker on my work computer. The MP3 is too big to email to my personal computer. Also, I am blocked from uploading the file to Dropbox or similar. The best I can do is upload it to your site, go to my personal computer where I can install Checker and run it through Checker there, then re-upload it again.

I have rerecorded the intro and outro and run it through Audacity's noise reduction.

The file is at https://librivox.org/uploads/lynnet/cb023_themiddletoeoftherightfoot_rs_128kb.mp3

Next time I do a recording, I can do on my personal computer.

Please let me know how to proceed.
I will move the recording over to short stories. Don't worry about not being able to use Checker... not everyone can or chooses to.

In case you did not see it in the Short Story thread, I wrote this:
Richard, the file now meets all the technical specs :thumbs:
I will need to change the file name for it to meet with the requirements of this collection. There is no need for you to do anything further.
:clap: :clap: You are off and running.

If one one were to read an actual puzzle---involving three teacups and ten cubes of sugar---would one also provide the solution as it is written at the back of the book? Or should we torment our listeners?

:twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

How about putting the solution in a separate file? That way, listeners can be tormented right not, as the fancy takes them. I can always add a sixteenth section, so as not to deprive others of the opportunity to contribute.

Hi Lynne,

Is it possible that I could reserve 3 slots? They're filling up fast and I don't want to miss out! :)

Thank you,
Andrea
