Re: [EDUCATION] Democracy and Education by John Dewey - cm

Hi there - just wanted to say, because it's been quite a while, that I've finally begun work on Chapter 12.

Re: [EDUCATION] Democracy and Education by John Dewey - cm

Hi - I'll take Chapter 12 if it's still available.

UPDATE: Quick question: any suggestions on how to read the numbers at the start of paragraphs in that chapter (and some others)? 1 is, of course, just "One"; for "I" and "II," should I say "Roman numeral one" and "Roman numeral two"? Thanks!

Re: [GROUP/ECON] The Principles of Economics by Frank Fetter

The only thing that I need to mention--there is a small problem with the ID3 tags. The Track Title should appear just as the Title field appears in the Magic Window. So for this section, the Track Title should show " 40 - Chapter 40 - Waste and Luxury ". (It has been suggested to me that it is easi...

PL OK! Thanks, Shawn. :thumbs:
Many thanks for listening to this (exceedingly long) "short" poem! And thanks again for all your help getting started at LibriVox.

Re: Redundancy and reliability of online storage of recordin

Thanks for the information. I wonder if it would be easy to produce a separate file containing each project's metadata (such as the readers, or more information about authors in the collection projects -- e.g., as simple text or as XML) and then have archive.org include that as a separate file on th...

Re: Redundancy and reliability of online storage of recordin

Ah, that sounds like a good practice.

Do you (or does anyone) have a rough sense of the current storage requirements of the whole LibriVox archive, in whichever compressed format a consensus would hold to constitute a suitable backup?

Redundancy and reliability of online storage of recordings

Please forgive me if I should have been able to figure this out on my own, but I'm curious what happens to recorded projects once they're complete. I know that the primary host for the recordings is the Internet Archive at archive.org, but does LibriVox automatically send the recordings elsewhere as...

Re: [GROUP/ECON] The Principles of Economics by Frank Fetter

Here's Chapter 40 (duration 21:15); I don't think it's as good as I wanted it to be, but I hope at least it's competent:

Re: [POETRY] Short Poetry Collection 111 - gu

Hi John. Many thanks for your encouragement in last month's collection. I've tried to follow your advice regarding volume variations; I suspect it still varies a little more than is optimal, but for some reason it's surprisingly hard for me to stick with a single volume when speaking. There's no cli...

Re: [POETRY] Short Poetry Collection 110 - gu

Universal Prayer by Alexander Pope (1688 - 1744) Just a few PL notes: 1. The file name is incorrect. It's missing the "c" in "spc". Normally I would fix this myself, but there are a couple other corrections to make, so I'll ask you to fix it at the same time. 2. The beginning silence is too short. ...
