Perhaps it’s Called Lame for a Reason

Yes, I managed to make a nice recording of my voice.

Well, nice might be a stretch, but it’s a recording.

Yes, I managed to set up an account with a podcast host so I should be able to upload my recording.

Yes, I understood the instructions on how to download LAME – a program that is supposed to be able to convert my Audacity recording to an MP3 version suitable for pod-casting.

Yes, I clicked on the button multiple times and at no point in time did it allow me to convert my recording.

THREE HOURS!

Then, I get this prompt to allow it to change my computer – which in my understanding meant I was actually getting somewhere and I would in fact have it downloaded.

BUT

SECURITY ALERT!

6 malware/viruses detected/deleted and all versions of LAME deleted from my computer and now I am at a standstill.

The problem is I am desperately behind in the course. SO behind, in fact, that the course is over and I have no way to contact the instructor.

I was already feeling pretty depleted last week. Want proof? According to my Fitbit, I slept a total of 43 hours and 51 minutes from Friday until this morning. My human was concerned I might be depressed.

I am NOT depressed. I am FRUSTRATED! I was worn out because of the non-stop stressors in my life, but I refuse to be stressed.

Does anyone have any recommendations for free downloads that are safe and secure that can convert my Audacity recording into an MP3 file?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Sorry Manee. You are now talking outside of my area of knowledge. At least I know what a podcast is 😉

    I’m so sorry, I don’t know anything about audio files. :/
    It might be a bout of depression… I’m glad your human is there to question it. Feel better, take care — this isn’t THAT important, k? ❤
