I commiserate! This is too real!

I have a gremlin in Audacity. It seems like any time I record something longer than a few minutes, SOMEWHERE in the recording there will be a skip where a word or two dropped out - it's not a clipping or a noise reduction issue, it's a skip like a record skip, often with a little electronic noise at the skip spot. Almost like the sound got....smeared? It's no big deal, I just re-record that phrase and drop it in, but it seems to happen every time, but only ONCE per recording.

...when the only place you can record in your tiny apartment shares a wall with your neighbor's laundry room, and she ALWAYS seems to know when you've just sat down to record, and starts running her machines? :evil: How can one person have this much laundry to do??

it maybe be worth checking whether it's a resources error - something running in the background etc - Audacity is a resources hog. But if it is only once and you notice and reread it is probably not worth hunting for.

My wife hates it when I text, post, reply, etc as her on her accounts. It doesn't bother her recording, so I'm not sure why she gets so angry.

At least he made it clear he was him and not me. The worst is when he posts (on facebook, or sends a text or something) from my account and just says something completely nonsensical so it looks like I said it. :roll:

I briefly unfriended my mom on Facebook because my dad (who i was not FB friends with) happened to see her FB open and see something I had posted. (Let us just say that the Venn diagram of our respective worldviews was two separate circles for the most part). He made a snotty response (which is why I never friended him in the first place). My mom and I didn't put together what had happened til she said something about never seeing my posts anymore and I told her I'd unfriended her for being a jerk.

Yeah, good times.

Anyway, at least your hubs appears to do it in a goofy teasing way, so there's that.

I only know of one pair of spouses who volunteer for LV. Are there more?

Not that I know of. To be clear, my husband doesn't volunteer here. I just left him unaccompanied around my computer. :roll: :lol:
