Please Forgive the Technical Difficulties

This evening, I was in a rush to get home to start transcribing the Charlie Dent interview. The first thing I did was to transfer the recording to my hard drive, probably in too much of a hurry. When I tried to open the file, pfffffffffffffftttt.

My media players are incompatible with .voc files, and the software that comes with my recorder won't recognize the file.

Uh oh.

I spent most of the evening trying to download a program that works. So far, I'm SOL, but will find one sometime this weekend. If all else fails, I'll call Joe Long.

So I'll delay the interview until I can get a media player that works. I would prefer to give you Congressman Dent in his own words. I apologize for my stupidity, but you already know that.

You on a Mac? If so, there is shareware called Soundconverter available here that may work. I have never used it, so I can't say if it's any good or not, but I thought it couldn't hurt to check it out.

Good luck with the technical difficulties.

Thanks, Pete, I've tried a few converters and nothing is working.

Sam Bennett did a Vulcan mind meld and zapped your tape!

Har! Har! Har!

Anon 11:30,

It's not a tape but a digital recording. Bennett needed no mind meld. I screwed things up all by myelf, fortunately an expert is working on it. I transferred the file to a flash drive and hope to have it an audio that i can hear within a few days.

No worries, Bernie. I'll just go listen to Sam Bennett in HER own words...
