Our feeling is this: in order for LibriVox to be successful we must welcome anyone who wishes to honour...

Re: Do we need the LibriVox disclaimer in every chapter?

Welcome Donald Miller! On page 1 of this thread I wrote: I see you have been here a matter of weeks, and find it 'interesting' (I wouldn't dream of saying pretty annoying) how sometimes people come along and almost immediately start criticizing the way things are done here.

Re: Knitting! (and other needle arts...)

Hi Beth,

I learned to knit a long time ago - way before the days of YouTube, but I've just found this nice quiet cable stitch tutorial for you: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QG3E1-pacI0

Re: [HIST/LAW] Magna Carta Commemoration Essays - RuthieG

Thank you Karl :)

I don't have checker on this laptop, due to on-going problems with Java.
However, MP3 Gain has measured the volume as 89 db.

It is a raw recording, but if it's necessary to compress & increase volume, please let me know.
