Re: 'Thank You' messages for LibriVox readers - continued

Praise received for adonis (Tony Addison) from our 'Thank a reader' feature : Thanks to Tony Addison for his reading of “The Woman in White” by Wilkie Collins. His voicing of the different characters was excellent. Perhaps it was too good: I really wanted to strangle Mr. Fairlie, and he wasn’t even...

Re: The Canterbury Tales by Geoffrey Chaucer (Middle English) dc

Very hot here too - global warning. Sorry about this, but the news is that I have a low white blood cell count and they have to check me out for leukaemia. Anyway it makes me tired and irritable and lowers concentration and gives me memory lapses and a perpetual sore throat - in short, unideal for r...

Re: Request for more LGBT content

There's this:

This doesn't appear to be in the catalogue. PD in the USA it says and often mentioned side by side with The Sins of the Cities of the Plain. Part attributed to Oscar Wilde. Nobody knows for sure.

Re: The Canterbury Tales by Geoffrey Chaucer (Middle English) dc

Got a great new diagnosis for my tiredness which might mean taking vitamins or might mean something rather more serious. Waiting for blood tests. In the meantime, I'd rather not pack into the Tales until I know I can get on to the end. So I'll leave this pending for now. Will let you know as soon as...

Re: Elia's Essay by Charles Lamb

I like your enthusiasm. I read the Last Essays for Librivox - in fact, go listen. And he has been likened to my favourite writer, Avram Davidson, whose Adventures in Unhistory are essays on fantastical subjects. However, I'm too damn tired to do anything, probably for the rest of this year at least....

Re: [Fortnightly Poem] The Haunted Palace by Edgar Allan Poe - dl

Not such a supercalifragilisticexpialicampish production as it might be. At least in my opinion.

Re: The Canterbury Tales by Geoffrey Chaucer (Middle English) dc

Just a brief update. Getting over bronchitis so going slow - more to the point, got an odd problem with the machine where only the 5 and 6 of the numbers actually work. This puts a bit of a crimp in Amplification work in Audacity - use of numbers. Tried a dozen or so fixes so far, turns out it's qui...

Re: [Weekly Poem] Song: Eternity of Love Protested

I have a curious problem. Since my last Windows update, the numbers, but for 5 and 6, have ceased to operate on my machine. Hmm. Glad to have this problem solved - found a solution on the Net to exactly that, tap Alt button five times swiftly and, amazingly, it didn't work. So now in this specific c...

Sounded fine to me. That is, PLOK. That is, aradlaw's version. Looking forward to Algy's suggestion.

I re recorded it from 16:50 (the boy starts chanting) to the end. Odd that. Don't know what happened there. Will reupload shortly. Thanks for your patience.

Re: The Canterbury Tales by Geoffrey Chaucer (Middle English) dc

Anti-Semite attitudes in this story are not those held by the reader - they are part of the character of the nicely brought up Christian lady telling the story. So. That's settled. The next one on is a funny one, Chaucer sending himself up, so I may actually do that. In the meantime, all is well as ...
