This chapter won't podcast download for me. It comes up with the following message:

There was a problem downloading "23 - I Corroborate Mr. Dick, And Choose A Profession".
The URL "http://www.archive.org/download/David_Copperfield_0805_librivox2/davidcopperfield_23_dickens_64kb.mp3" could not be found on the server.


This is the first podcast chapter of David Copperfield I have had trouble downloading.

We have been having some issues with the server it is stored on. See this error report:

Hi - thank you so much for the mega quick reply. I am still a relative newcomer to the world of podcasts and while totally hooked, struggle a little with anything that goes less than totally straightforwardly.

Glad to know I'm not the only one who is having trouble downloading the podcast of chapter 23.

The online audio link isn't working either.

Hope the chapter is available soon. I am so enjoying this book.

Thanks for the welcome, Starlite.

I'm sure the chap. 23 issue will be resolved as soon as possible.

Until then, if anyone else is eager to keep up with the text and wants to absorb chap. 23 before moving on to subsequent chapters, a very readable copy is located online at the University of Virginia's eText library. The link is:
http://etext.virginia.edu/etcbin/toccer-new2?id=DicDavi.sgm&images=images/modeng&data=/texts/english/modeng/parsed&tag=public&part=25&division=div1.

Not that I'm trying to promote that site over Librivox's--I love the audiofiles here. I post the link only for impatient types like myself :)

appreciate your link.

I think we have used that site in the past too.

I'm also wondering about the status of this chapter. I've been a subscriber since May of 2007 and I've never had this issue with any other chapters.

BTW: Amazing work! Great site! :)
