I have a quick question. I've noticed this every time I go and run a file through the checker with this project, that the checker keeps saying: "
The file name does not appear to match the ID3 metadata:
The last name does not seem to match the artist ("stratton-porter" versus "").
The section number does not match the title ("01" versus "freckles_01_stratton-porter_128kb-001")."

I also went and looked up Version 1 of Freckles, and there they didn't have the "stratton-" part in the file names.

So should the file name be changed to "freckles_01_porter_128kb" for example? And if so, do all the readers need to re-upload a file without the "stratton-" in it?

Sorry for bringing this up after there are sections already PL OK :oops: , but I only happened to think about it now.

Thanks,
Elijah

Hi Elijah,

Yes I think just porter would be better. I changed the first post to reflect it. No need to re-upload the already submitted files just for that, I will fix them at cataloging. :-)

Thanks!

Good reading on Chapter 1 John! That was excellent! There are just a few PL notes though:

First off, the volume is a bit too high, sitting at 92.2 dB. We aim for 89.0, but accept 86db-92db. Can you please amplify it down a tiny bit?
The bit rate is at 192 kbps. We need it to be 128kbps. Do you know how to fix that, and if so, can you please?

For the reading, there are just a few things that should be tended too:

@ 1:46 The text says "and when the cook lifted the lids to plunge in his testing-fork" I heard: " and when the cook lifted the lud to plunge in his testing-fork". I think this changes the intent of the author, so can you please edit it?

@ 8:18 Missing words "answered McLean."

That's it! I enjoyed how you did your characters, it was great! The Scottish and Irish accents were perfect! I liked it a lot, very good reading John. :D <smile>
