Re: ~[TRAVEL/MYTHS]Scilly and its legends. by Henry James Whitfield - jo

Hi Timothy, Ch. 4 is PL Ok. In Ch. 5, there is one small error, which could be left as is, or you could change if you want (either is ok by me). It occurs on page 42, middle of the page at 10:41. Text reads "and a clear violation of that most pious and equitable statute." You said "status" for "sta...

Re: [SOLO] The Life of Thomas, Lord Cochrane, Tenth Earl of Dundonald : Completing the "Autobiography of a seaman". Vol2

Hi! Finally started! Chapter 1 https://librivox.org/uploads/alg1001/lifeofthomaslordcochrane2_01_bourne_128kb.mp3 35:56 The next chapter is the longest in the book, so it may take me two or three sessions to record it and cut it down. Well, Timothy, I'm rarin' to go but I didn't get a notification....

Re: [SOLO] The Life of Thomas, Lord Cochrane, Tenth Earl of Dundonald : Completing the "Autobiography of a seaman". Vol2

I think I may have set this up wrong. This book is the second volume, so should the filname for the first section be lifeofthomaslordcochrane_01_bourne_128kb.mp3 as above or lifeofthomaslordcochrane_17_bourne_128kb.mp3 based on the chapter number or lifeofthomaslordcochrane2_01_bourne_128kb.mp3 to m...

Re: [SOLO] The Life of Thomas, Lord Cochrane, Tenth Earl of Dundonald : Completing the "Autobiography of a seaman". Vol2

Btw the article about him in Wikipedia suggests a common motiff in all his escapades, of him being piqued over not being appreciated/sufficiently financially rewarded. Any such remarks in the volumes you've recorded? It's basically the moral of his entire two volume Autobiography . He wants to set ...

Re: Play Suggestions

I'm a bit of a Lord Dunsany fan, so I was really happy to find a three-actor play here (http://www.gutenberg.org/cache/epub/16435/pg16435.html) where he revisits his short story about Fame and a Poet from "The Food of Death". Basically, there's a poet who worships fame, and does all of the lofty art...

Re: [SOLO] The Life of Thomas, Lord Cochrane, Tenth Earl of Dundonald : Completing the "Autobiography of a seaman". Vol2

Hi :) What a coincidence. I'm in the middle of the recording of a book about the South American struggle for independence where Cochrane, as you may know, played a significant role. What a character :) Which book? I'd like to have a look. Cochrane covers that part of his life in his own book (Remin...

Re: ~[TRAVEL/MYTHS]Scilly and its legends. by Henry James Whitfield - jo

In my last post I wished for snow, and got night storms instead, which made recording in my tin-roofed garage difficult, but here is a start. There are a flurry of little chapters at the beginning. https://librivox.org/uploads/knotyouraveragejo/scillyanditslegends_00_whitfeld_128kb.mp3 2:12 https://...

Hi Sue! Thanks for DPLing.

Sorry about the delay - my recording area is not air conditioned and Australia is having a heat wave at the moment, so it's an oven in there.
