I think it's safe to say wsraymond is not going to record his section. It's been over four months now, and he's not been on the forum since then. I've sent him a message, but it's not been read.

Hi Jordan

Agreed. Thanks for flagging that.

I've re-opened the section.

Hi! I would gladly take that orphaned section. I will record it over next couple of days, so we can get this finally into catalog.
Keep your mind here and now, where it belongs.

So, here you go, chapter 12 is up! Duration is 22:40

https://librivox.org/uploads/knotyouraveragejo/timetellingthroughtheages_12_brearley_128kb.mp3
Hmm... It's all correct, apart from the pronunciations of 'Eli' and 'Jerome' (They should be EE-lye, not EL-ee, and juh-ROME, not JEH-roh-mee). The problem is each is said many times, so it's not easily changeable. I also suspect this falls under 'things that don't count as a PL fail'.

Eli: 0:46, 0:59, 2:39, 3:32, 6:12, 7:28, 7:42, 10:32, 12:34, 14:46, 18:43
Jerome: 12:04, 12:22, 13:09, 13:28, 13:42, 14:21, 15:16, 15:39, 16:09, 16:21, 16:54, 17:15, 17:36, 17:42, 18:06, 18:14, 18:26, 20:39, 21:02

I've marked it as PL OK, and I'll let you decide if you think it's worth changing.

Well, if the tradition has the pronunciation of these two famous men like the way you say, then I have to change that. After all, the story is not about some guy from neighbourhood, but the founders of American clock making. :) Please change the "PL OK" in the MW to "see PL notes"" , so as not to confuse things for others and I will think a bit on how to better proceed with the corrections.

Hi!
I went the easiest (for me) way and re-recorded the chapter 12. It is re-uploaded, link the same, new duration is 22:14.
Unfortunately this means the whole has to be PLed again, sorry for that...

Thanks for rerecording.

Here are your new notes:

1:54: There's some beeping during "he sought refuge in a farmer's home"
16:19: There's some beeping during "enough of the clocks had been sold to establish a demand for them among the retailers, and the officials finally conceded that the low price might be a reasonable one after all"
22:08: The ending silence is too long. You should be aiming for 5 seconds, and yours is about 6.3 seconds

Gosh... no luck with this one, I suppose. :) Anyway, fixed and re-uploaded again. Fingers crossed...
