Yup. The pedrail is what tanks use to move over challenging terrain.

Chapter one! Wooo! :D https://librivox.org/uploads/carolin/modernmechanism_01_williams_128kb.mp3 (48:24)
Very well read, easy to listen to and to understand, not always easy in the non fiction section. :thumbs: :thumbs: :clap:

Just 2 little edits.

There is a repeat at 45:16 of a phrase you started at 45:12 "the mechanism he employs is...." Just edit out the first one at 45:12 and it'll be good.

At the end of the section you said, "End of Chapter 1" and it should be End of SEction 1. Some of the chapters are so long that they have 2 or more sections, so the section numbers and the Chapter numbers are not always the same.

Just resubmit and be sure to note the time again as there may be a difference from the time of the first submission.

Again,
Thanks for the great listen, :D

Sorry, I am behind schedule on my reading of Section 7.

We've been apartment hunting the last couple of weeks, and under the stress, my recordings completely slipped my mind. Fortunately, we're moving this week, so I should be able to finish before the end of the month.

Hi there everyone - I will be the new BC for this project since Carolin is having a serious attack of "real life" right now... Let's hope she'll be back soon! :thumbs:

In the meanwhile, let's move this project forward for her! Lots of interesting sections in this one! I have orphaned all claims from more than 2 months ago, so plenty to choose from.

Enjoy! :D

Oh: Please keep uploading to Carolin's folder for the time being.
Cheers,
Ava.

It's okay, just a wee bit over the 2 months, thank you! :D

You can always ask for an extension if you see that you're running late and you still want to record the claimed sections. Better to ask than to have the section orphaned and assigned to somebody else.
Cheers,
Ava.

Definitely, all yours!

Those tubes are actually still being used! One of my doctors uses them to send all sorts of stuff back and forth in his office. 8-)
Cheers,
Ava.
