Re: A few errors in the RSS feeds

There's a related thread in the media monkey forum: Podcast Subscription Problem [#11881] And this isn't necessarily the cause of your problem, but the feed doesn't pass the W3C validation tool: http://validator.w3.org/feed/check.cgi?url=http%3A%2F%2Flibrivox.org%2Fpodcast.xml Often RSS clients (or ...

Re: Where can I find a good freeware English-English diction

Thank you. Unfortunately, they only offer files compatible with Windows—I use Slackware and Debian Linux. I appreciate your thoughtfulness though. :)

Re: [Submitting]A few errors in the RSS feeds

Andy, Moving the articles (A, An, The or in other languages Die, Der, Das, etc.) is intentional. It is a form of sorting used by librarians - to ignore the articles at the beginning of the title and start with the first significant word. The capitalization of the author's last name is also intentio...

Thank you. But I'm sorry I'll have to bow out. Too many irons in the fire suddenly. Could you please remove me? My apologies for the inconvenience.

Re: Looking for help setting up a podcast

Thank you Andy for all this help. I want this to be as simple as possible using free stuff if possible so no streaming for me because that seems even more complicated. So I make my blog, insert or embedd a link to a audio link. I believe the question to that will be answered in the link I provided....

Re: Looking for help setting up a podcast

An RSS feed typically contains either links to a web page (i.e. a new post or news article), or in the case of a "podcast" contains direct download links to audio files. With a blogger site, an RSS feed is automatically generated, and updated, when you create a new post. Anyone with a "feed reader" ...

Re: Where can I find a good freeware English-English diction

I run the dictd server on my computer, and use 'dict' to locally to connect to it. Running on the same machine. It doesn't give the type of results you're requesting though.
