... when you record a loud, long, and angry conversation between two characters, followed by this line: "Neither of them spoke loud, for dread of neighbours."

Sigh. Starting again, quietly but still angrily...

When you're working on preparing a project (think DR type) only to find that it's not public domain for the others working with you ...

I think you'd hate it more if you'd been the one responsible for taking on a project without noticing that an author who had published a work in 1905 while the bloom of youth was still on his cheek had gone on to die a nonagenarian. :oops:

Best,

Barbara

im sure this happened to all of us, i know it happened to me :roll:

youd think that the rules in europe are pretty straight forward with a death date determining everything, but there are still countless things that can go wrong. :)

one of my neighbours' dogs ... yarp, yarp .... yarp .... yarp, yarp, yarp ... yarp ... yarp ... yarp ... yarp, yarp .... and on, and on ....

I'll read the poem another night.

When you forget you've left Youtube open and running on one of your other tabs and an advert suddenly blares out at full volume through your headphones... I aged about 10 years in one second... :hmm:

When it’s your birthday and all you want to do is record but you have 4 days of your family taking up your time to ‘celebrate’? The curse of an introvert. Go away and let me be by myseeeelf!!!

A thunderstorm sets off a neighbourhood car alarm which goes on forever...

edited to add: Alarm FINALLY stopped 12 hours later at 7am. I hope they have a flat battery on Monday morning :twisted:

When I have been recording in the past my Lurcher (spread out on the couch), will occasionally let out a deep groan, as if to say "why don't you get it right, for heavens sake!"

These days I record in a separate room, but then I get my wife flushing the loo, or the birds outside start making a din ... It's a hard life.

When you find a book you want to BC, scant hours before the LV update.

When you have been fighting with Audacity for 2 weeks only to find out it was basically a PEBKAC error due to your computer thinking you reconnected speakers you got rid of years ago? *sigh*
