Shifts update

Chapter 30 of Shifts ("Missing History") is up at SQ. Very minor tweaks for a smoother text flow.

That doesn't seem like much to justify a post, but I'm flat out of rant ideas just now.

Sigh. I'm looking at my f-list, which is just huge, and I'm not keeping up with it. I think I may have to weed. It doesn't strike me as nearly as much fun as weeding paperbacks...

Making sound files smaller?

Well, I was going to contribute my nasal, r-heavy accent to mctabby's question about whether or not Gryffindor sounds like Ravenclaw, so I plugged in my microphone and learned to record, but, um... 12 seconds is 1.5MB?

I know how to cut file size in graphics (most resolution can be dropped to 72dpi without changing its display on the 'net, since most browsers will only show 72dpi), but I have no idea how to do it in sound. Any suggestions?
