PL notes:

The file name is incorrect; there should be no underscore in motorpirate.

12:05 Text: d -- d. Said damned. This is one of those tricky things with old texts.

All else is OK.
Do I need to fix the title and resubmit? It's no problem to do so. (And will fix for Section 14.) How to pronounce "d----d", though, escapes me at the moment. Preferences?
1. Yes
2. The usual way is to simple say "blank", in this case "duh-blanked."

Stav,

I realized I forgot to change my bit rate. I have re-uploaded Chapter 7.

Hope this did not derail anyone. :oops:
No problem. PL OK, but just slightly louder than desirable volume at 92.5db. Reduce your output by a couple of db for future recordings.

Section 13, corrected:

Section 14:

I've got a bad feeling about this Mannering fellow...

PL notes on chapter 4:

2:07 like the other man (cut off)
6:18 Winter turned one of his pockets inside out with an expressive gesture. (Line missing)
7:34 stumble on "casual"
8:11 Pause excessive?
10:12 Loud "boing" sound
11:02 Thump sound
Sorry for not catching these. Here's the edited recording: https://librivox.org/uploads/alg1001/motorpirate_04_paternoster_128kb.mp3
Thanks!

Chapter 13 Pl OK.

Chapter 14

7:20 Missing: ""There is only one face..."

Mannering does seem sketchy.
