Re: Lay Down Your Arms - Bertha von Suttner

Re: [SOLO] English and Cantonese Dictionary, by John Chalmers - availle

I know this is not the most exciting project to listen to even if you do speak the language (sorry David, probably not to record either :oops: ) but it would be really great if we could wrap this up and get this into the catalog by the end of the year.

Lena, I have checked, you are indeed in the DPL spot, so that's not the problem (sometimes MCs forget to enter that into the database... :oops: ) Ideally, you should have a different password for the forum (here) and the MW.

It is manned (womaned?) by one of our admins who will take the necessary steps (like posting here, removing obsolete weblinks from the reader's page, informing BCs if there are still outstanding recordings etc.)

Re: Suggest a "Staff Pick" for archive.org

Thanks Tricia! I needed a bit of time to think of a new theme for next year :wink: The staff has picked for December! Please have a look at this page for the current list. You can also check out our wiki page for a plain vanilla list that contains all the staff picks for this year plus the readers! ...

Thanks for your recording, Jenny, I've entered it into the MW. Please stick around and wait for the comments from aniroo, our DPL, who will listen to your file.

No, I mean I made a mistake on the "late" during recording and had to correct it, but apparently I read it again as lady. That's all, m'lady.

This sounds like a very interesting story / book from where this was taken. Unfortunately, I could not find it online... The author was more famous as a... wait for it... botanist. :D
