I didn't get to 13 yesterday, obviously. :) Just one PL note:

31:00-31:06 - Please remove the "End of the Report to the President..." as that only goes at the very end of the book/project (in this case, at the end of section 22). :)

23:21 - stumble: "The quote I read i-- the quote I read is"

23:26 - repeat: "when do you want me to launch, next April" (rep at 23:29)

A couple stumbles on "Mr. MacDonald" at 23:33

23:41 - couple more stumbles

In short, check the whole 23rd minute. ;)

24:52 - "that is, do not launch with a temperature greater than 53 degrees" - is this supposed to be "less than"? - Oh, I see the text has a [sic] in it (p. 97, near bottom of 1st column). Maybe you should vocalize that. :hmm:

:oops: Wow! That's the most mistakes I've let slip in quite a while!
I had a lot of interruptions while editing, and each time, I thought I'd backtracked to where the distraction began. But I guess I didn't backtrack far enough to catch that 23-24 minute section! Sorry about that!

Here's the corrected file - (new length 41:06)

(Besides correcting the errors, I also added in that "[sic]", to make clear that the other "error" is actually in the text.)

Section 10:

4:54 - stumble/repeat: "that we had an issue..." repeated at 5:01

Sorry to make you record that table! It's hard to know, looking at the text, what tables will be interesting to a listener and what will not. :? That was a long one!

I thought the table was interesting, at least the part that broke down exactly what event happened at what time. The difficulty was having to read the complete list of people present at each event, with their full position and title repeated each time. If they had shortened it to just surnames, after the first time, I think the table would have flowed right along as listenable text. But - since we have to read the text as written - no help for it but to read all those job titles over and over, which did rather bog down that section! :roll:
