Tomorrow I'll post in orphans unless one of our other readers pops in to pick up the claim.

Would you like me to move this back to Readers Wanted, or do you want to simply post in the orphans thread?

Did someone say orphan? Do you understand the magnitude of that? Yes or no?

I'll do it. :)

No need. Usually someone snaps them up pretty quickly. :9:

Can you please tell me what you hear as far as audio quality? (compressin, EQ, noise, distortion, artifacts, etc.)

I got a new mic and struggling to make it sound crisp and clean. I just got ear-tired.

Oh good! No more talk of free not meaning equal.

I listened with headphones and did a side by side spot check in a number of areas between your last section and this one. I agree you just got tired. You are spot on with all of it. I can see that you processed a little differently but it doesn't negatively alter your quality.

PL notes:
20:03 This, however, taking into account the specie in the country prior to 1849 leaves more than $300,000,000 which have not been accounted for by exportation, and therefore may yet remain in the country.
I hear leaves no more

39:31 The receipts of the Department for the year ending June 30, 1867, including all special appropriations for sea and land service and for free mail matter, were $19,978,693. The expenditures for all purposes were $19,235,483, leaving an unexpended balance in favor of the Department of $743,210, which can be applied toward the expenses of the Department for the current year.
I hear $74,310

20:03 - no more no more than, just more than

39:31 - seven hundred and forty-three thousand, two hundred and ten dollars

Thanks for the listen. I hear this noise on the top that is driving me crazy.

I'm so sorry. I gave up my sound booth and packed away my high end equipment. At this stage I'm limited to the computer and Bose headset.

Spot check PL OK. Thank you very much for picking up our orphans...again.

I'll be launching Hayes and Arthur in about an hour.
