Re: [SOLO] London Labour etc., Vol 1 -Mayhew-ans

Thanks, Gill. Section 87 edited and uploaded.

Unfortunately, most of the last chapter is a tabulation of his data, but I think we should do it, to fit in with the rest of the text.

Re: [SOLO] London Labour etc., Vol 1 -Mayhew-ans

Thanks, Steve; I'll probably not buy a copy, though. The "consent forms" and demand for addresses, and the reputedly stodgy style puts me off a little. it's true that there are people still in a similar state in London now as in Mayhew's time. A few years back, three friends and I decided to got to ...

My June list: 42 Sherlock Holmes, the hidden years - Ed. Michael Kurland. A collection of short stories by different authors about what Sherlock Holmes did in the years between his supposed death at the Reichenbach Falls and his reappearance.

Re: The all-new "HELP! I have an Audacity problem" thread

Generally, the input device is the microphone, the output device your speakers or headphones. Some microphones (the Blue Yeti, for example) have a plug for headphones so you can monitor your recording as you speak, and so are effectively both input and output devices.

Re: SOLO London Labour Volume III -ans

I suppose it would be possible to have tables saved as both PDFs (each titled to give its location in the recording) and all recorded together as a separate sound file, with an index recorded at the front, giving timing locations for each table within the sound file. I'll try that, next time I read ...

Section 94 PL ok.

EDIT:
Section 95:
Just one small correction:

30.09 At Dartmoor, when visitors wish to try the prisoner's soup, " I hear "prisoners" instead of "visitors"

Re: One Book a Week Club 2021

My May list: 37 A Wizard of Mars - Diane Duane. Ninth in the Young Wizards series. A re-read; I read it once, years ago, but had never really felt any urge to read it again, til I took it up a few days ago. There's not a very complex story line, but it's interesting watching Kit and Nita dealing wit...

Section 92 PL okay. Congratulations, Gill; I should be finished PLing within the next day or so. EDIT: Section 93: 00.14 (sort of...) repeat of part number. A word I'd not encountered before ....

Re: SOLO London Labour Volume III -ans

Definitely, Anne; but I think it would need "reader's notes" in place of the tables, to point to the external files.

Having read a couple of very technical solos, I really do feel that the LV policy on reader's notes needs to be a little more flexible.

Re: SOLO London Labour Volume III -ans

I hadn't noticed the peculiar numbers for London and Wales (all bar the first!). I've had a look at three of the scans on archive.org and they show the same. I mean to get a reader's ticket to the British Library, when the restrictions have eased enough. If I can get a ticket soon, I'll see if I can...
