Re: Librivox Book Club: The Abandoned Room

Camp is sowing seeds of suspicion all over the place! At one time or another I seem to have suspected everyone.

Re: ~ [Philosophy] Of the Shortness of Life by Seneca - cm

PL notes General # Volume level I am sorry to report that after all the work you have done on the level, these are still uncomfortably soft. The scale of the volume setting on my MP3 listening device goes from 0 to 50. In a quiet room I usually listen to books on volume setting 15 to 18. Of this wo...

Jättestor tack, kattekliek! You are absolutely right,; while interpretation in performance of a poem is necessary, one should be careful to respect the author's text. There's only one of your notices where I might claim that it is just the local pronunciation of the language, but then I should be us...

Re: ~[Group]How to Listen to Music by Henry Edward Krehbiel

Ah, Patrick, did you notice that in your intro and outro you instruct us to read the name of the author as "KrehbieR", with an err instead of an ell? This is seen also in the file name, whereas the ID3 tags have simply "Krehbie". You may want to edit something...

You can contribute by reading, listening, building CD art, participating in the discussions, and whatnot. The folks here will soon try to make you feel welcome...

Re: Just arriving on the scene

Hallo indeed, Erich, and welcome abroad! It is a good thing you put the "newbie" in your introduction into quotes; your background and experience are orders of magnitude greater than the absolute minimal qualifications most of the others of us started with. There are a number of works in progress or...

Re: Historic Winter Storm

The "snow hurricane" in the United States merits even a mention on the front page of our regional newspaper, which usually is not overly impressed by anything taking place overseas.

Re: New from Bru

You will find here an astonishing variety of things; from the sublime slapstick of Jerome K. Jerome through deep meditations of Thomas Aquinas to popularly accessible text on science and engineering -- as well as incredibly obtuse philosophisings of Wittgensteins and Freuds. And always, if someone e...

Re: [Weekly Poetry] Be Kind When You Can By Eliza Cook - dl

Stav, BreezyMay; The link Breezy has given above will download the MP3 for me. It is of 1:26 duration. The reading is beautiful to my ears. However, there is something strange about the file. It plays well in MediaPlayer, but Audacity garbles it totally and completely. Also, I don't see the ID3 tags...
