Editing's a bitch!

Howdy fellow uncensored knitters!

I (Ms. B) have the wonderful job of editing the podcast. It normally takes me about 3 - 4 hours to do it. BUT at this last recording, I didn't pay attention to what was around my computer. If something is blocking the vent, then it will overheat and just turn off. I normally am so good about making sure it has enough room to "breathe", but I think we were already drinking the Traber and well...it shut off while we were recording.

Don't worry, we didn't lose anything. What audacity does though is cut up the recording into 1MB files, which is maybe 5 seconds. And do they have a way of reimporting everything? Of course NOT! So I have to go one by one, open and paste it together. There are 230 of these files! And that's only the FIRST part! After that, I then have another 7 long ones to listen to and edit.

So, this is my formal apology for not getting episode 4 up quickly...Sorry folks!!! Oh, and one more disappointment, my sweet husband and I haven't had the time to make a new theme song this time around. Rest assured, you'll hear my horrible singing in episode 5.

I don't mind you reusing a previous theme song now and then.

Good luck with the editing!

I wonder if using the DOS command to copy *.WAV to one large WAV file would have worked? Works for text files, but there might be header issues with binary files. Sucks though that you had to do that!
