St. George for England by G.A.Henty(1832-1902).

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: http://librivox.org/st-george-for-england-by-g-a-henty/
A tale set in England in the time of Cressy and Pointiers. A child of noble birth whose parents have fallen foul of the current royalty is taken by his dying mother and placed in hiding. He grows up with a bowyer and then apprenticed to an armourer just outside the gates of the City of London, becomes accomplished in arms and joins the campaign in France.
A tale of heroism and 14th century values. Another enjoyable historical fiction. (Summary by Annise)
  1. How to claim a part, and 'how it all works' here
    To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are “up for grabs.” Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you’d like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
  2. New to recording?
    Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
  3. Is there a deadline?
    We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim (or by the target completion date, whatever is sooner). Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it’ll go back to the pool. There’s no shame in this; we’re all volunteers and things happen. The target completion date for this project is 30th April 2010
  4. Where do I find the text?
    Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/etext/3429
  5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)!
    If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.


    Prospective Prooflisteners: Please read the Listeners Wanted FAQ before listening! Level of prooflistening requested: Standard

[*]BEFORE recording:
Please check the Recording Notes:
http://librivox.org/forum/viewtopic.php?p=6427#6430

Set your recording software to:

Channels: 1 (Mono)
Bit Rate: 128 kbps
Sample Rate: 44.1 kHz

[*]DURING recording:
Please leave no more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of your recording!

Make sure you add this to the beginning and end of your recording:
Start of recording (Intro)
  • "Chapter [number] of St George for England. - This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org"
  • If you wish, say:
    "Recording by [your name]"
  • Say:
    "St George for England, by G. A. Henty. [Chapter ##, Chapter Title]"
End of recording
  • At the end of the section, say:
    End of Chapter ##"
  • If you wish, say:
    "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
  • At the end of the book, say (in addition):
    End of "St George for England, by G. A. Henty"
Please leave 5 seconds silence at the end of your recording, or 10 seconds for files longer than 30 minutes!

Also, please remember to check this thread frequently for updates!

[*]AFTER recording:
Need noise-cleaning?
Listen to your file through headphones. If you can hear some constant background noise (hiss/buzz), you may want to clean it up a bit. The new (free) version 1.3.3. of Audacity (Mac/Win) has much improved noise-cleaning. See this LibriVox wiki page for a complete guide.

Save files as
128 kbps MP3
stgeorgeforengland_##_henty.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is your section number. (e.g. stgeorgeforengland_01_henty.mp3)

ID3 V2 tags
(To find out more about ID3 tags, go to our wiki: http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/What_is_ID3)
Add the following tags to your .mp3 file (how you do this depends on which software you use – if you are unsure about ID3 tags, send me a message). Please mind upper and lower case!

Title: ## - [Section title]
Artist: G. A. Henty
Album: St. George for England
Please ignore tags for Genre and Track Number - these will be filled in automatically at the cataloguing stage.

Transfer of files (completed recordings)
Please always post in this forum thread when you've sent a file.
Also, post the length of the recording (file duration: mm:ss) together with the link.
  • Upload your file with the LibriVox Uploader (when your upload is complete, you will receive a link - please post it in this thread):
    http://upload.librivox.org
    Image
    (If you have trouble reading the image above, please message an admin)
    You'll need to select the MC, which for this project is: arb - annise
  • If this doesn't work, or you have questions, please check our How To Send Your Recording wiki page.

Fabulous, thanks jimmowatt. I'm bumping this up because it's slipped down this list... another meta coordinator will come along shortly to work with you on this. :)

I thank you.
I've found a program that seems to allow me to set up a directory on my computer as available for ftp when computer is online (more or less all the time.)
I'm making the Saint George for England files available in that as I go along.
Can you or anyone else see if they are accessible in there?
The address is umor.homeftp.org and the directory containing the files is pub

I'll tell you, when I try it it says "Can't establish a connection" if that helps you.

It is the nature of error messages, it seems, that they veer sharply away from any wording that might be at all helpful.
However, I did find a log file in the program and it mentions someone trying to do an anonymous login and it denied them access as there were too many connections. That may have been the one you tried.

Well, I've fiddled with the amount of connections in another part of the program but I can't tell whether I've altered it for anonymous logins.
I think so.

You beat me to the punch by minutes.
I was just going to leave a message to say this (Henty) was still going on.
Still making some progress but focussing more on the macaulay project at the moment.

Kind regards

Jim
