Alright I'm done with 10 and 11, and I'm sorry, but do to some events at home, I will need to finish the book before I can start making the big edits. :cry:

Thanks TBOL3. We'll be here for you when it's ready. Just say the word if you need editing help and we'll put the call out.

BTW-- I can't wait to hear your podcast. What is it going to be about?

I was thinking of having is start with some OSS (Open source software)/Science news. Then give a nice chapter from an audiobook, then comment on it. But this is only a start, it will probably grow later. I'm open to ideas, but not here, :)

Anyway, thanks for the support.

Great news, I just finished up the book, and hopefully I will get a chapter edited for tomorrow.

Alright it's uploading now, but why does your unloader only allow zip, and such files? It would be much easer to upload the MP3s?

As far as I know, it handles mp3 files just fine. It's the same uploader everyone else has. I'll look into it.

Edit:
I had a PEBKAC error when I set up the uploader.

Sorry TBOL3. The Problem Existed Between the Keyboard and the Chair. I never enabled my uploader to receive mp3s. It is now set to receive mp3 wav or flac. Please send mp3 to your heart's content. Sorry I made more work for you.

Thanks for your patience while I set this up.

I'll take a listen tomorrow while I'm getting ready for work.

TBOL3: I haven't been able to listen to it all but it sounds good so far.

One detail. I noticed that you placed the disclaimer at the end. The standard format for the disclaimer is at the beginning of the file.
The Admin Team wrote:This has been discussed extensively now. The decision taken is that we will use the following disclaimers for the foreseeable future:

For books and longer recordings:

* Intro: each chapter has the standard LibriVox disclaimer:
"Chapter [number] of [book title]. This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit librivox.org. - (If wished, name of reader) - [Book title] by [author]. Chapter [number]."
* Outro: "End of chapter [number]. (If wished, name, URL, location of reader)
Please move the disclaimer to the beginning.
You may also wish to include the URL to your blog/podcast at the end of the file.

We had actually already talked about this, which is why it was like this.

But I will change it if you want.

Yup, I went back and sure enough you had talked about it in January. The policy changed in early March. I know you have this whole book recorded so I would agree with you to leave the disclaimer at the end for this book, but in the future stick with the new guidelines. Sorry for the confusion.

Apparently chapter 11 originally had extra material that was deleted. It was later published as a short story named "The Grey Man." It might make for a nice little side project.

Hmm, if it's PD, maybe we can add it as an appendix.

Anyway, I'm back into this project, and will try to add a chapter a week. :D :D :D hopefully

It's great that you're back TBOL3. Could you please resend chapter 1? I am very sorry but I lost it between my uploader and setting up my new computer.

Once the start has been edited, I could proof listen to it for you if you want?

Thanks, I'll take that offer peatbogfaery.

I have Chap. 2 edited, (except for the tag which is still at the end). So do you want to proof it before or after I move the LV disclaimer?

I also have a question. DuctTapeGuy, you were talking about PG audiobook of The Time Machine. It also says it's copyrighted. But http://www.botar.us/timemachine.html also has a copy of the EXACT same files. And says it's PD. Can anyone clarify what the copy status of it is? Thanks.
