Hi Adrian, just came across these and they are fantastic. Some really useful stuff there!

Admins: could we find a place for them where they would be more visible?

Thank you, Michael. Glad to have been of help. I'm truly inspired by this project and glad to pass on what I've learned so far.
Phil, thank you for finding a safe home for these. I really appreciate the work you admins do.

Hey Adrian,

I just wanted to add my voice to the thanks on the superb job with these videos. They are amazing! As a Librivox (and audiobook narration) 'newbie' your videos have been tremendously helpful. Especially your case studies, and just watching how you work. As an aside I'd been looking around for something that clicks loudly to mark errors in the track. I didn't even think of just making my own clicking sound so thanks for that little tidbit. :D

Regards,
Darryl
