We got a metal roof on our house this summer and as we are in peak pecan and acorn season now, we've learned that such objects dropping on our metal roof sound like golf balls and baseballs hitting it, so there are periodic retakes to account for that in addition to the planes, trains, and automobiles...

Oh my goodness that’s awful 😣 I once did a whole recording while my mic was muted. I know how that feels!!

It was bound to happen someday... Surprised it took me this long.

I recorded a chapter whose deadline is coming up. I did my usual post-processing, which takes a few minutes to run. While it was running, I got started on other tasks. I got involved in what I was doing, had to double check on this and that, had to download a file to check that it was the correct one, mindlessly closed that file and the one that I had just recorded, went to a different project to back up some things that were recently completed, got distracted by a funny upload in my folder that doesn't belong there, suddenly realized that my recording should have finished processing by now and it's time to upload. Went to export the file... which was gone... because I had closed Audacity... without saving.

:cry:

It is more of a general thing, but I hate when I do organize my day a certain way, like working in the morning, being excited all day to go out for a walk, and the sun disappears the second I step out of the door :lol: .

I totally get that! Or when you finally have a sunny day and you decide to take a walk, and you realize that although it’s “sunny” out it’s freezing cold :lol: #california in the fall :lol: :lol:

OOh.. when you've recorded two pages of dialogue of a verbose sailor who is (you think) from the West of England (like his shipmates), edited, uploaded..and after recording four more very long chapters, the author tells you he is WELSH!!!! :cry: Anne F

I'd decide that he was born in Wales but ran away to sea at an very young age with a load of West England sailors so lost his Welsh lilt :D :D :D

No, Anne, rather it was a mission of mercy to those poor benighted souls. :wink:

Well decided to redo dialogue..watched old Mervyn John's film to try and get West Country sounds out of my head...just can't do a grumpy Welsh accent! Never mind,do my best. copy track, add another blank one, record ..do punch and roll (several times)..copy, paste etc etc, about to export and realise track is several minutes longer than it should be... Somewhere along the line I've hit control D instead of shift D and duplicated umpteen bits umpteen times!! I just hope this is the last appearance of First Mate Price,but still eight chapters left😱

windows updates. I came down to my cabin to do some recording yesterday and saw that my computer had an update to apply. So I thought I would "re-start and apply updates" while I pop back up to the house to make myself a coffee. Well, 3 hours later and the PC had just finished updating but I now had to go out to pick the car up from the garage after having it serviced!!! Mutter mutter grumble :)
