Hi NicoliVolta, Thanks for this reading! :) I think this exhortation to individual enterprise and food self-sufficiency from 1910 still speaks volumes to anyone reading it today. Carver's long list of garden vegetables to plant I found fascinating.

Your reading is PL OK with one small exception. This occurs right at the end, where the text reads "(Signed G. W. CARVER, Director Dept. of Research and Experiment Station..." You read the abbreviation "Dept." as "deputy" instead of "department." If there had been a comma after "Director" it would have been clearer what was meant.

Here is the second part of Ramanujan's Obituary by

E. H. Neville (I have entered him to the database)

Hi Availle, This was an interesting description of Ramanujan's personality! :) Your reading is PL OK except for one small spot, where you misread the month of his birth. At 1:11:20 the text says "December" and you read "September."

Hi Chad, Thanks for this wide-ranging look at the old sailing trade! :) I found of particular interest Forwood's comments regarding the impact of various international wars and the gold rushes in America and Australia on the Liverpool shipping trade.

Your reading is PL OK except for one small slip at 17:50.50. The text reads "the chain cables passed through it to the chain lockers below." You substituted the words "cabin lockers" for "chain lockers."

File names...

Hi Everybody, Generally speaking, we're doing a great job with our file names lately... however, I thought I'd put out this call for "short and sweet!" We don't need a full title, just a key word or words that identify your selection, and we can dispense with "The," "A" and other preliminaries. For your "delectation," your BC here appends the text of her rule #2 from the instructions:

Please keep the file name short. It isn't necessary to put the whole title in the file name - just a word or two. Please omit "a," "the," etc. from the title. Do not put spaces between words. Keep everything lower case. Even your initials should be lower case. The only underscores should be the separations between the snf volume, title, author's last name, and your initials. There are only 4 underscores in a title!

Thanks! And keep recording! :thumbs:

Hi Chad, Your recording is now PL OK! :) I don't know exactly what a "chain locker" is, but having grown up in Seattle (a port city in the USA), & having seen the size of the hawsers on contemporary vessels, the mental imagery that came to my mind as I listened to you read that passage was what a horrible end would have befallen the crew of a sailing ship if the chains had landed in their cabin instead of the locker!

Alright, I'll rerecord that as soon as I can. Yeah, I really didn't know what "dept." meant in that context. I too love Carver which is why I recorded this, because it turns out there was nothing by Carver on LibriVox before this. Speaking of Carver, I'm planning to do one more Carver related recording, either for this collection or it's own stand alone book depending on how long it is, and I have a question about it. I want to make an recording of Carver's claim to fame, 105 ways to Prepare Peanuts, but the problem is, there's a chart in book that I don't know how'd I'd say that in an audiobook. The chart is on page 7 here: https://archive.org/details/CAT31355406/page/6 If anyone here knows how I'd do that, please let me know.

Hi NicoliVolta, Carver's "105 Ways" is a great idea for a recording. For ideas on how to read the table on page 7, you might want to post your query in the "Need Help? Got Advice?" thread, and you'll probably get a variety of responses.

Here's how I would read the table.


"The following table, from the best know authorities, shows it as compared with alfalfa, cow-pea vines, crimson and burr clover (air dried material):

Water: peanut 7.83%; alfalfa 6.95%, cow-pea vines 10.29%; crimson clover 9.6%; red clover 14.30%.

Crude Ash
: Peanut 17.04%; Alfalfa 7.49%..."
[etc.] That is, I would continue to name each category of the table, followed by the names of the materials (peanut, alfalfa, cow-pea vines, crimson clover, and red clover) and their percentages, in succession, until I had read the table in its entirety.

I hope this is good. Please don't hold back if it is not - I'd prefer to only waste your time once if I waste it at all. :]

Hi Acrt86, Welcome to LibriVox and to the Nonfiction Collection! :)

I see you have already recorded this selection from Max Stirner and uploaded it to archive.org., crediting LibriVox.org in your recording, (although it was not uploaded by LibriVox to the archive.org server!). I also see that the notes accompanying your recording uploaded to archive.org state that "The False Principle of our Education" was first published in 1842. I also see from reading your previous posts on the LibriVox forum that you have had some discussion of this selection with one of our LibriVox admin's, in which she states "The bad news is that your textlink in not acceptable" because there is no official copyright notice or proof that the text was published prior to 1924. In response, you posted that the Anarchist Library was being uploaded to archive.org. I think you did not realize that just because a printed text has been uploaded to archive.org (in this case by the Anarchist Library) that it is automatically in the public domain. Archive.org accepts what is uploaded. It does not do an independent check to assure that what is uploaded is in the public domain.

From my examination of the Stirner text on archive.org, my conclusion is that it is NOT IN THE PULIC DOMAIN as required by LibriVox. And, therefore, I cannot accept your recording for the Nonfiction Collection.

Stirner's essay was written in German. When or by whom it was translated into English is not stated by the Anarchist Library. What is stated, at the end of the text, is this: "The assistance of Hans G. Helms in the resolution of difficult and obscure passages and terminology in this translation is gratefully acknowledged. (Translator's note.)" According to Wikipedia, Hans G. Helms (1932-2012) became interested in Stirner in the 1960's. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hans_G._Helms. Thus, I conclude that the translation you read from could not have been published prior to 1924.

I you are looking to record something that would fit into LibriVox's catalog, I might suggest you look at this: http://www.gutenberg.org/files/47454/47454-h/47454-h.htm#X. This is an essay about Stirner from a book on Gutenberg.org. Gutenberg vets everything for public domain status. I glanced at the essay myself, and it looked interesting.

When you do record something new for LibriVox, could you please double-check the way we require our file names--no capital letters whatsoever, not in the name of the book/text, author's name, or your initials. They all must be in small letters.

To end on the upside, please do not give up on recording for the LibriVox! From what I listened to, your recording style was clear and well paced. So, please, in future -- if you are ever in doubt about whether something you want to record is in the public domain by LibriVox rules, post your query and ask for help. You'll get a response. That is the LibriVox way!

Regards,
Sue (Book Coordinator for the Nonfiction Collection)
