Re: [SOLO] France at War by Rudyard Kipling - smijen

Have you deleted the two? As if I now upload MP3s that will add to the space used... I'll do MP3s in future either way.

Re: [SOLO] France at War by Rudyard Kipling - smijen

Correction done I am uploading the file as FLAC (which is only data compressed not audio compressed) is this OK or should I upload the good quality MP3?

The FLAC is 37MB and 18:02 https://librivox.org/uploads/smijen/franceatwar_01_kipling_FLAC.flac

Re: [SOLO] France at War by Rudyard Kipling - smijen

PS the correct version is on p.21 (33 of the PDF) here https://ia700400.us.archive.org/17/items/franceatwaronfro01kipl/franceatwaronfro01kipl.pdfon Archive.org in a copy of the book dated 1915 so I will correct Gutenberg in the light of this original out of copyright text.

Re: [SOLO] France at War by Rudyard Kipling - smijen

Yes, I understand the copyright issues, though the Kipling Society only looks to be claiming copyright for the "notes" not the text, as I read their site. I am as always reading from the Gutenberg version. The mistake above, even if it is in the original (British as well as US?) version, does seem t...

Re: [SOLO] France at War by Rudyard Kipling - smijen

PS, I have found a couple of places where I stumbled over the Gutenberg reading, and now checking on the Kipling Society site find what seems a "better" reading. Should I correct the Gutenberg text for this recording (and email them the corrections)? The first is at 10:10 - Gutenberg: By divine acci...

Re: ~[SOLO] France at War by Rudyard Kipling - smijen

Aagh! I went to login to the MW to put the title and link to section 2, which I have just recorded and I cannot find or remember the login.

Section 2 "On the Frontier of Civilization" is at: https://librivox.org/uploads/smijen/franceatwar_02_kipling_128kb.mp3 it should be 18:02 and 16.5MB.

Re: ~[SOLO] France at War by Rudyard Kipling - smijen

I am starting to read, with the first journalistic section (leaving the poem till I am back in the swing of Kipling - as I find poems more difficult to read than prose). I notice that the book has: 1 ON THE FRONTIER OF CIVILIZATION It will be strange to say section two for this! So, should we go bac...

Re: ~[SOLO] France at War by Rudyard Kipling - smijen

Thanks very much Kathrine, I think it should be interesting. Kipling wrote really well, and had a sympathetic and compassionate eye for people. Though since the 60s he's been seen as jingoistic and an apologist for British imperialism. There's truth in that, he was a man of his time, but it is also ...

Re: ~[SOLO] France at War by Rudyard Kipling - smijen

It is nearly a year since I finished a project on Legamus The Square Egg and Other Sketches , since then what time I have had for recording has been devoted to reading Winnie-the-Pooh (the text though not the illustrations are out of copyright in countries like New Zealand and Canada, though not in ...
