Re: Re-using recordings / catalog search

The Raven Editions of Poe come from a single book (or rather: 5 different volumes). So no, no collection, as I pointed out above. https://librivox.org/the-works-of-edgar-allan-poe-raven-edition-volume-1/ The keywords are not included in a search of the LV catalog itself. If you go over to archive, k...

Re: FULL: Short Nonfiction Collection, Vol. 064 - jo

Great info here! Thanks. You mentioned "webcrawl" in your first paragraph and "card catalog" soon thereafter. Allow me to remark that "walking the tree" of a relational database is a different algorithm from either of those other activities. I am aware of that. But the data to be entered into the d...

Re: [FULL] Lovecraft's Influences and Favorites -ans

Is anybody in touch with the DPL? He seems to be around but hasn't posted anywhere for more than 2 weeks. :?:

I don't care much about my own recording being PLed because I'll be around for longer, but some of the other readers seem to be pretty new and would probably benefit from a timely PL.

Re: FULL: Short Nonfiction Collection, Vol. 064 - jo

Hi there William and thanks for your patience :mrgreen: Looking at your post from above, I don't want to comment about the first paragraph, really. I don't think a websearch is a good example. I don't know how google etc. organise their databases, but I would assume that there are plenty of redundan...

Re: Re-using recordings / catalog search

Good evening, I'm back after a good night's sleep and a lovely Saturday. It's finally getting warmer here! :D

If you don't mind, could you please take a step back while I'm having intelligent discourse with William about our search function? Thanks. :thumbs:

Re: Re-using recordings in more than one project

I think Elijah means "same recordings in different projects". :wink: And thank you Elijah, for making my point so eloquently! :wink: I'm sorry William, I just finished work, it's 2 am now and I'm too tired to answer you coherently... I'm not trying to get out of this, as I said you raise some intere...

Re: Re-using recordings in more than one project

I have split this off the non-fiction thread because you actually know what you're talking about! :thumbs: Okay, let's have intelligent discourse about this topic. :D I don't have time right now to address all of the issues you have raised, so just very quickly: 1) Our search function is... not opti...

Re: FULL: Short Nonfiction Collection, Vol. 064 - jo

Just to make sure we're on the same page here, do you mind if I paraphrase / summarise your argument? It comes in two parts, doesn't it: 1. I really do not think we need to be concerned about people who SEARCH stuff in our database. 2. On the contrary, I believe it is paramount to make sure that peo...

Re: FULL: Short Nonfiction Collection, Vol. 064 - jo

Then you have to entirely re-record the piece. The rationale is something like: Say, you find a certain poem that you love and it's in the catalog 5 times. You want to listen to all of them to see the different interpretations - and then you find out that 4 times, it's EXACTLY the same recording. So...

Re: FULL: Short Nonfiction Collection, Vol. 064 - jo

Do you ever have people who go through them and try and put together a collection of a certain theme? Just to make this clear: We do not allow the same recording to be used in more than one project. So, if anybody would want to do such a collection for LV, all pieces would have to be redone (even b...
