Great, thank you!

Please always post how long your recording is. It's one way to make sure everything has arrived in one piece.
Cheers, Ava.

Ava,

When will chapter 11 be posted (and thus "listenable") in the Magic window for "A History of Astronomy," so that I will know it has been included? Many thanks,

Richard

It is 23:38 long. I also noticed that it has a 9 second lead-in before my voice begins. Sorry, it was my first-ever recording! :clap:

Thanks,

Richard

Thank you!

Yes, that leading silence will need to be cut. But don't do anything just yet, please wait if our DPL finds any other issues, then you can fix all of them at the same time.
