Good luck with your Brahms, Catherine! What do you play?

Lyra, I've added you to the list in the first post - I'm helping Chip out a bit because he cannot possibly be here all the time - just look at his own list! Besides, I'm in a different (time) zone :)

Chip, I've also added everyone from the thread in Suggestions, and have posted a message to direct people here.

Happy March Jamboree, everyone! It's so exciting to see how many people are doing this together :)

Woohoo Kara! Yes, I agree it's fun to read. Even the Wake is fun to read, one has so much freedom as to pronunciation, and everything takes on different meanings accordingly...

My contribution for the Jamboree is up to now negative: I bought a new microfone and the difference to my old equipment is so great that I decided to do my Descartes-chapter (which just needed to be uploaded) and my Darwin-chapter (needed editing in some parts) all over again. But I already recorded a fairy tale with the new microfone.

While you're at it, I did two short poems: Lie-Awake Song and Sometimes, and Ch. 1 of Anne of Avonlea. :)

Rainer - I know what you're going through. When I got my new mic, I rerecorded an hour and a half section of Leaves of Grass!

OK Annie, you're listed (hey, you can edit yourself!! :)).

Rainer's new mic sounds great.

As does Alessia's, she has just recorded her Through the Looking Glass chapter with it. Hmmm, I should get a new mic myself... maybe I'll pick one up when I'm next in IT civilisation.

Oh, and kaseumin has just sprang a whole Japanese book with 45 chapters (in 5 handy files) on me, which I catalogued immediately! Do listen to it, it's beautifully read. I like listening to it whilst following the English translation on screen. :)

I just finished recording and editing ch. 7 of the Secret Adversary. Yay!

I'm well underway on my Domestic Cookery section, but it's a pretty big project, so I won't be finishing it this weekend, just so you know. :D

Gesine, I wish you good luck for your "mic hunting" within the Italian territory...I couldn't find a usb mic neither in Savona nor in Genoa :roll:

Hehe - I meant IT=information technology, not IT=Italy... although the nearest big town is probably on Sicily.

I finished them a few hours ago but started uploading them and fell asleep :) Well how's everyone else doing?

I'm sitting in a hotel room, thousands of miles from my good recording gear, but I'm going to bang out my remaining chapters of Pride & Prejudice regardless -- Logitech headset and background noise and all -- just to prove that I still belong to this project. :)
