Re: File hosting, distribution and storage

True, it looks better than few months ago, when they were still explaining in their FAQ that they don't host non-institutional content!

Forgot to ask, I did hesitate myself how far "poetry" goes. It's now Philosophy.

Re: Solo [ENGLISH] The Prophet by Khalil Gibran-neb

Great, finally it's not only me who is picky! Thanks a lot Hokuspokus, I corrected everything. Nadine, we have a template among the "posts", it was my fault of being too liberal with it (and too strict with this thread's first post). Some stuff I just didn't see - the red colour mysteriously disappe...

Re: Solo [ENGLISH] The Prophet by Khalil Gibran-neb

Cataloged! Tell me whether the text, taken from the first post, is OK for the catalog too, and I remove the password (which is "legamus").

Re: Happy New Year

Happy New Year from me too ! And the shift of the year is happy for us* indeed, as new texts enter the life+70 public domain: Rabindranath Tagore (already in the Indian life+60 PD), Virginia Woolf... and let's not forget translators, there's a couple of German Edgar Wallace translations :-) *of cour...

Catalog blog

Now that I have a closer look at the first work in the catalogue, shouldn't we add systematically to each post our disclaimer "This text is in the public domain and this recording is under the CC0 license in many European and other countries that follow the life+70 principle.

Re: First book ready-now what?

With our own server anything is possible. :mrgreen: It's just that, for the moment, it would be a bit over-dimensioned. Once we gain some momentum, it will be there, in one way or the other! Allow me to quote myself ;) If I had my own download server, I'd put the individual files there, so people ca...

Re: First book ready-now what?

You can do the upload, too! The nice Legamus link is provided by the Link Resolver, that's the one piece of the meta tools that is already working. I sent you the link and the access codes. In some months, I hope it's the Finisher tool which will check volume and tags before one of us does the uploa...

Re: First book ready-now what?

We haven't talked about that yet as far as I remember: I think we should put the files in one zip for the download. Much easier to maintain. I suggest we have both: One ZIP file and individual files. Single files make sense because people might just want to "listen in", and some freehosters like ge...

Re: First book ready-now what?

Exactly my opinion ;) I just re-uploaded Ruth's original 128 kbps files, without any of my "vandalism". A ZIP file and two individual MP3s are available under the old links http://legamus.eu/link/Khalil_Gibran-The_Prophet/complete (89 MB) http://legamus.eu/link/Khalil_Gibran-The_Prophet/parts (90 M...

Re: File hosting, distribution and storage

Good news from http://ge.tt - if one has a free account there, they give you now 2 or 3 GB and the files do not expire. As long as we do not have tons of recordings, this looks very good.

Re: COMPLETE Solo [POLISH] Bolesław Prus- Widziadła - hok

And I uploaded it to ge.tt, they have a nice English interface, and one can either download the file or listen directly. (Free.fr is still an excellent site for temporary files or French recordings.)

Re: COMPLETE Solo [POLISH] Bolesław Prus- Widziadła - hok

Congratulations from me as well! Thanks Piotr and everyone involved!

I replaced the blog link with this nicer version

that I can keep up-to-date when the freehoster changes.

Re: Polish

Given that it was published posthumously, I assume that IT IS important in that case. I imagine that the "death+" rule becomes "publication+" for such a piece of writing? That depends on the country. In some European countries, maybe most of them, a posthumous work which is published _until_ author...

Re: The symbolist Movement in Literature, Symons 1919

Published (in the better version) in 1919 => that's before 1923, so it should be on LibriVox. As the author died less than 70 years ago, it is even completely impossible for Legamus. ;) This work is not in the public domain in life+70 countries, only in the US and possibly in some (former) life+50 c...

Re: Polish

Welcome Piotrek, and thanks for reading the short story! Just tell us when there is anything not working or otherwise in your way.

Yes, at some point we need better smileys, I think... for me, particularly this one :) looks more suffering or sighing than smiling!

Re: Solo [ENGLISH] The Prophet by Khalil Gibran-neb

Dear Ruth, with the idea of a 64kbps file, I do not want to create any hassle or delays. If you're happy with the 128 kbps version, should we just go ahead and publish that one? If later on you give us a 64 kbps file you're happy with, we can just replace the other one or add it as another possible ...

I'd say yes! Let's take everything we can get :mrgreen:

If Piotr does not mind, we might put it into a suitable short story collection if we have one later. (Keeping all former links working, of course.)
