Re: How many hours' worth of recorded material do I have at Librivox?

By the way, since moving to a new platform I can’t use the old MovieMaker app anymore to put a wallpaper behind the audio in an mp4 for YouTube upload. Would anyone happen to be aware of a good cheap app ...

I may hide my age here, but I remember there was a spreadsheet at one point where age statistics were collected. This might still exist somewhere in the forum.

Can’t believe you’re missing your opportunity to proclaim your age as a groovy 33-and-a-third. :lol:
