Re: Checker 0.96 and bit rate in the file name question.

Yes, it's relative to 0 dB SPL, not the noise floor. All the gory details are here.

I know LUFS are all the fashion but FWIW I think that ReplayGain is still a good standard and it works well for Librivox.

Re: Way Off Topic: Spreadsheet Formula Help!

That may be a limitation of the program; it's hard to tell without looking at the code. I guess it's using the usual lookup/match functions which only return the first matching value in a list. It's possible the person who wrote it didn't anticipate more than one matching date per calendar day. Unfo...

Re: Way Off Topic: Spreadsheet Formula Help!

Unfortunately I'm away from home and I don't have a way of opening OpenDocument Templates, otherwise I'd be happy to program it for you. If you have access to the year and month of the calendar you're creating - presumably they're entered somewhere - then you can use them to create the 'B5' date, or...

Re: Way Off Topic: Spreadsheet Formula Help!

This is the usual generic method that most people use. For 'every Wednesday' I'd start with an arbitary Wednesday as your starting point and just add 7 each time. You know that spreadsheets represent dates as integer days (with decimals for the time) so you can just manipulate them arithmetically w...

Re: ReplayGain

My question is: how does the Replay Gain effect in my Audacity 'know' about 89dB that we use here is LibriVox? When it analyzes my file and tells me it needs 2 dB more or -2dB less, how does it know that the referent point is 89dB? That is my question. Where is this number 'set' into the program. T...

Re: Password pulldown

I imagine it's because Firefox is storing your username and password. If you go to your Firefox Privacy and Security Settings (menu icon -> Options -> Privacy & Security, or type about:preferences#privacy in your address bar) and scroll down to the Logins and Passwords settings you can turn off that...

Re: Sweater vest

Brit here!
A common British term for them would be a "knitted tank top". If you look on the UK eb*y site you'll find lots of listings including the muted retro designs. I'm sure many sellers ship to the States.

A few autumn-themed ones from me. Both Alfred Austin and Robert Bridges held the post of Poet Laureate of the United Kingdom. Apparently Austin isn't very well regarded in the poetry world...
