Re: Re-using recordings / catalog search

Don, TriciaG, we're not in high school anymore and trying to earn patches and badges to wear on Boy/Girl Scout uniforms. Are we? Are YOU? You aren't, I am not, I bet Tricia and Don aren't. But for sure there are volunteers who aim for that. I've noticed such attitude. And yes, I feel there is no su...

Re: Covermakers Chat Thread

I think what we are both saying is that we find making covers a personal thing, That's exactly my point. If a soloist (or maybe even a BC) asks for a special feature, I may try to put it in, like in Foons cover where she asked for using that picture of the squirrel she had befriended. That is becau...

I've claimed my share for now, but whoever does claim that title should have a look at this painting: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Goya_-_La_casa_de_los_locos.jpg Alternatively there is some artwork in the authors' Wikipedia pages that are worth looking at - links in the bottom left corn...

Re: [SOLO] [German] Italienische Reise Teil I & II von Johann Wolfgang von Goethe - kit

Wow, schon wieder ein Monat rum. Goethe hat wohl Probleme mit der Wärme in Italien, er schlummert seelig ;) Aber ich hab ihn noch im Kopf, irgendwann geht es auch wieder weiter.

aha, so you don't have the 4 colours like the French cards ?
You have four colors, but they look different. I guess you can substitute them though - heart is Herz, spade Gras, diamond maybe Schellen and club Eichel (or vice versa? :hmm:)

Re: [OPEN]World's Story 7: Germany, Netherlands, Switzerland - kit

I think I already heard about this game but I don't know the rules. Maybe Availle or Monika know more about it I haven't heard about a game called "Jass" but I do know cards with "Eichel"n, they are common in Bavaria. The other ones are "Schellen", "Herz" and "Gras". In Bavaria "Watten" and particu...

What is "x-runs" ?
That's when the computer can't keep up with the audio. It makes odd clicks in the recording.

Switzerland! And Germany! Man - I wanted to do slow down a bit :lol:

Re: Working ahead of copyright restrictions

Has it ever been suggested that LibriVox encourage volunteers to work on poems and the like that will soon be entering into the public domain? Why should I put myself into danger of doing something illegal when I don't even find the time to record the stuff I can do legally? I don't understand that...

Oggi provo a modificare... C e solo questo problema oppure anche errori di lettura?
