A follow up to my last message: I actually rocked over and checked out the wiki page, and I was amazed at how much stuff is over there. People write all sorts of stuff, and that adds a lot to the sense of 'online community'. Certainly, now you look at it, it would be difficult to duplicate ALL of th...

Hi Guys, most of the feedback to this idea has been in English, so I'll keep that idea going (apologies to other language speakers). Most people baulk at the huge amount of ongoing web maintenance and translation required to make Librivox multi-lingual. What struck me from the first however, is how ...

Salut a tous!

Bonjour tout le monde! (English, Japanese following...) Je suis un peu decu que 95% des textes et fichiers sur le site est en anglais uniquement - les Francais se vantent (avec raison) du corpus de literature le plus beau du monde - il faut que ca se voie dans le 'public domain' (qu'est-ce qu'on dit...

Australian Poetry - A.B. Paterson

Dear Thistlechick / Librivoxers, sorry for the silency lately, it's the end of the school year over here, and everyone's a bit busy. I've recorded some Australian Poetry this time - A.B. Paterson's "Clancy of the Overflow" - maybe some of you know it. Not sure if you want to put it in any poetry col...

Hello Thistlechick, Glad the file got there okay - please check that it transfered completely - though I guess if you opened the .Zip correctly, then that's fine. There was a small .txt file attached, which had my details in it, but I'll repeat them here: Reader: James Lord (first/last) (no URL) Tha...

Hi Thistlechick :) Well, I've never used FTP, but it's nothing that I couldn't figure out in 30mins or so, I guess. If you send your details to HONGAWA.ALT@gmail.com I'll try my best! Yousendit seems to have timed-out again, it always returns a "zero-sized error" message. Thanks for the help, James.

Yeah, I can understand how the whole podcast thing might pass you by. I'm not big on technology myself (I don't even have a mobile phone), but because I won't have any internet connection when I return home to Australia, I'm making the most of the one I have now to download radio and audiobooks that...

Transfer problems??

Hi Betsie, I've tried sending my file (a 16Mb zip) through Yousendit, my browser keeps timing out... any hints? Could be my end, I'll try again tomorrow. I'm not too up with file transfers and stuff, and I fear it's too big to attach as an email, so I hope it works tomorrow. Checked out your blogpag...

G'day Hugh well, I've got the MP3 ready to upload already, so that might be some sort of record! It would be good to harvest the talent of other Australians out there so that we could team up and tackle some more ambitious project - I've put the cheezy "G'day" tag in the header line, so that should ...

G'day there everyone!

Dear Librivoxers, how's it going? I discovered your site on Friday, and I reckon it's a brilliant idea! I'm amazed there are so many people out there who treasure the idea of free audio-based literature like I do. Bit disappointed to see a lack of any Australian literature in the 'completed books' s...
