Hmm the catalog page has a time of only 2:55. It seems I spent a lot more time on it then that.

Will check and see if I have the original. It may be on my external hard drive and I don't have time to look now.

Sorry this was before I kept all my recordings. I no longer have it. It took long enough to figure it out. After 85,240 downloads! :?

If no one has original I will record it again.

Thanks so much for pointing this out!

I just finished recording this again. Will have to edit it and have it proofed then upload to archive.

Stay tuned for further developments...........

Jack since you are going to listen anyways, is there any chance I can get you to do the official proof listening since this is a total re-record??

Esther another problem with Junior Classics, would you want to take care of this one at the same time?

#62 of the Junior Classics Vol. 1 is actually Hansel and Gretel. I just checked it. It says Thumbling but it isn't. Id3 tags are messed up on it as is the catalogue page.

Esther, if you're short on up/download capacity, I can fix it when it's proofed (tommorow morning at the earliest, my brain isn't working well enough at the moment to take a chance on fixes).

Kristin, re Hansel & Gretel vs Thumbilina...is the story that's supposed to be Thumbilina in it's correct place in the list, and if so, is it actually Thumbilina?

EDIT: Answered my own question about Thumbilina, it's #63, d'oh.

Paul, I think I will take you up on your offer to replace the files once done. You may as well fix both files and do the upload all at once.

Thanks so much for the offer.

You're welcome. It gives me another opportunity to get more familiar with the necessary steps for this sort of thing. I'll keep an eye on this thread...if I don't see it shortly after it's proofed, rap me on the head with a PM or something.
