Re: LibriVox Community Podcast Planning

Never mind. It's really not that important. It was stupid on my part to not notice a little itty bitty difference in the naming of the file which caused it to sort incorrectly. I should have noticed it right away! I was rolling my eyes at myself, not at any of you. Name your podcast file however yo...

Re: LibriVox Community Podcast Planning

The mp3 file is now listed with underscores because I changed it after a bunch of fussing around. Originally it was named with dashes: With all due respect, you should mention that for others to lean. librivox-community-blahblahblah - caused me problems librivox_community_blahblahblah - would cause...

Re: LibriVox Community Podcast Planning

I haven't done this in forever, and I ran into multiple difficulties and snags. (Next time, please use underscores instead of dashes in the podcast file name. That was the straw that broke my back! :roll: ) Here's the podcast! https://librivox.org/2018/01/18/librivox-community-podcast-147/ Since I ...

Re: How to reduce reverb for under $5.00.

Hey Jo, I also use pvc pipe to build mic stands/booms. The one attached to this link was made for a group that sat in a circle. They played bluegrass and someone would have to be dedicated to hold the mic when they were not playing. You can alter the plans to make it fit your desk or anything you ma...

I've not seen any discussion about turning it on/turning it off, pros/cons, etc. anywhere on the forums until now. It is a feature written into the core code of phpbb.
