Re: Help us wish Bill a "Happy 102nd Birthday!

I read the article in full before posting. It appeared to be a fete accompli as there was no mention of an appeal.

Paragraph 7 begins 'Nelson's lawyer Randall Newman, who spoke to Ars Monday night shortly after the settlement was finalised, said ...'
That would have been 8th February 2016

Re: Librivox Shakespeare Podcast

Here I am :? At least, my recording is in Cori's folder, duration 2:22
Apologies for sounding like a reading rather than a conversation - I had a small window of time to record and edit, so both were a little rushed. Hope it's ok, but feel free to edit, discard, whatever.

Re: British Library Puts 1,000,000 Images Into The Public Do

It works both ways Ann,

We Europeans have to check that whatever is in the wiki and PD for LV is also PD for us.
A little research never did anyone any harm. :wink:

Of course, there are still hundreds of thousands of images in the British Library Archives that are PD for LV

'Cute' American Accents!

I didn't like to hijack Ruth's solo project, but thought this little snippet of Downton Abbey characters might bring a smile here and there!

Re: Hello and Happy New Year from Pennsylvania

Welcome to Librivox! Ditto Algy's wise advice. Reading your PS, I thought there was a thread entitled 'How to make your recordings great' but perhaps I'd imagined that! Instead I found this in the wiki: http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/Storyteller%27s_Recording_Guide It's rather long, but take you...
