Re: [Group] The Mummy and Miss Nitocris by G. C. Griffith -j

Might I respectfully point out that the URL in Paragraph 4 of the introduction goes (at least in my Firebox browser) not to the correct text but to a Gutenberg text entitled "The Purple Land by W. H. Hudson". Might I suggest that this be corrected before some poor reader gets highly confused (and po...

Re: Any Native American speakers here?

With respect, there is no American Indian (native American) language; there are, I believe, at least 200 different languages and dialects, and there is no common system of pronunciation.

Re: [HISTORY]House of Commons speeches collection, vol 3 - c

Please assign me the William Pitt the Younger speech. I love the rhythms of late 18th century speech!

Please do not expect the contribution for six weeks or so as I am off on vacation at the end of this week.

David

Re: [FICTION] The Man Who Laughs by Victor Hugo -neb

Help:

After massive delays, for which I apologize most sincerely, I have finally got Section 25 ready for upload. However, now I find the MW replaced with a 404 - Page not found code. Could somebody please get the MW back so that I can see the data I need to finally upload Section 25?

[FIXED] Gibbon's Decline and Fall . . ., Vol. 3, Sec. 24

I have recently been listening to the above Section derived from the 64 kps Zip file. At about the 10 minute mark, there are a series of three loud noises (apparently an error marker which was not edited out) and the repetition of one sentence. At about the 20 minute mark, there is a repetition of a...

Advice re almost unpronounceable appendices

I would like some advice, preferably from an administrator, about how to deal with two very problematic appendices to Captain James Cook's, Voyage to the South Pole and around the World, Volume 2, which I am about to start as a solo. I am aware that Librivox has a policy that we expect our audio boo...

Dear Anna: Thank you for Section 40: the MW has been updated accordingly. This now leaves your BC in the somewhat embarrassing position of owing the last three remaining Sections. These were all recorded last night but need editing - I am hoping to finish them in the next couple of days. Regards, Da...

Dear Jules: Thank you for Sections 41 and 42; the MW has been updated accordingly.
