Re: [SOLO] Letters of Oscar Wilde, Volume 3 (1895-1897) - tg

Thanks, Tricia. No worries, I've got it covered. I'll use Bulk Rename Utility to rename everything, reupload, then manually adjust the links in the MW. Of course, I will double-check everything is correct by listening to the start of the files. I agree the 'b' suffix thing would make it easier to or...

Re: [SOLO] Letters of Oscar Wilde, Volume 3 (1895-1897) - tg

Thanks a lot, Lora. You have probably noticed that I added a new section. I found an alternative version of one of the letters, and I like to read both if the two versions are censored in different ways. I will wait to record it until you are done PLing everything else, as I will have to move it int...

Re: [SOLO] Letters of Oscar Wilde, Volume 5 (1898-1900) -lny

OK, here are my fixes: Section 66- 0:48- you said am instead of I am Section 68-0:25- I wasn’t sure if “XX Write to Paris” where the xx stand probably for kisses (You didn’t speak xx) is supposed to said before Rome, 1900 which is how it is written in the letter. I’ll leave it up to you to decide th...

Re: [SOLO] Letters of Oscar Wilde, Volume 4 (1897-1898) - lt

Thanks Shreya, I am starting to go through the Vol 5 comments today. I am not sure if I said before, but any errors on my part that do not really change the meaning of the sentence, I am happy to leave as they are. They do not have to be word perfect. Because "to" vs "in" the Chronicle means much th...

Re: [SOLO] Letters of Oscar Wilde, Volume 5 (1898-1900) -lny

OK, thanks Shreya. I will get to work on fixing these now. I have also found another letter that can go into this collection, but I will wait until everything is spot-PLed OK before recording and uploading it. Otherwise the section numbers will change while we are still working, which would make it ...

Hi! I've PL-ed most of the sections in this project but I cannot open the text links for the Babel Hathi Trust because every time I open them the following message is displayed- This item is not available online ( Limited - search only) due to copyright restrictions. Is there some other way to open...

I have re-uploaded those files and it seems to be OK now. It all seemed to upload fine last week, but of course I didn't check every link.

Rob,
Please double check the files for 72+. I was going to delete the volume 6 files and discovered the volume 5 files in my folder only go through 71.
OK, will do.

Ho Rob,
I'll MC this for you. I've been putting off closing out your Oscar Wilde v6 project so I'll reuse that MW here. It will take me a few extra minutes.
MC magic!

OK, I have organised everything now. New letters recorded and uploaded and all files renamed. The file previously PLed as 10 is now 11. Because I had to record the new letters anyway, I have now fixed the things you mentioned and it is ready for spot PL: https://librivox.org/uploads/linny/letters5_1...

Re: [SOLO] Letters of Oscar Wilde, Volume 5 (1898-1900) -lny

Just to let you know, by sheer chance when doing some other research on Wilde today I found four more letters to Leonard Smithers that are PD and can be included in this collection. I have recorded them, but now I need to fit them in amongst the other letters and to update the file names for followi...
