Re: Welcome everybody!

Just remember to check the box "notify me" at the bottom, it does not happen automatically like at LV. In your "User Control Panel" you can set "notify me at reply" to be checked by default. It's the tab "Board preferences", "Edit posting defaults", "Notify me upon replies by default". Should I mak...

Re: File hosting, distribution and storage

http://www.fileshare.pro/ is another candidate, this time from Romania. One has to wait 20 seconds before the download, but there are few ads and even a little audio player. Only one file at a time, though. Test

Re: File hosting, distribution and storage

While ge.tt and free.fr work fine, I occasionally look at other freehosters in case we need something else. Here is a huge list. One can sort it by date and thus stay up-to-date about "new" hosters. Many of them are small hosters (individual persons?) running the same ready-made script. http://www.s...

Herzlich willkommen, Heike!

Ich habe das Wort "mitstenographieren" bei zeno.org in die Suchmaske eingegeben, und als einziges Ergebnis kommt dieses Werk. Von 1927, also genau richtig hier :)

Re: First book ready-now what?

In some of the early threads, we agreed to try to offer the final MP3s with 64kbps. I think the idea was that it would be "good enough" and yet save bandwidth for servers and storage space for downloaders. Yet, recordings can be in a better quality, particularly when a normalisation step has to kick...

Re: First book ready-now what?

OK, you'll tell me whether this is any good or not :) I was able to normalise a bit by amplifying both parts by 1.4 dB (in Audacity). Then I converted to a 64-kbps ABR (average bit rate) MP3 using LAME, and uploaded to ge.tt. Here's the result, once with individual files - to listen online at ge.tt ...

Re: First book ready-now what?

So this is the time for me / my future automatic system to take over? Normalisation (not needed for Ruth :) ), meta-data, converting down to 64 kbps as we discussed in the other thread?

What is the spot-check?

[RESOLVED] Forum: OpenID login

Unfortunately, OpenID is a bit neglected within phpBB. There is one plug-in which is not compatible with PHP 5.3. Recently, our hoster Tuxfamily updated their operating system to the current Debian version, which includes PHP 5.3 :roll: After I updated a library used by the OpenID plugin, it seems t...

Re: Security certificate

Unfortunately, there is not much I can do about this. Tuxfamily is our hoster. Their web server runs lots of web sites all on the same port 443 for HTTPS. Due to the limited architecture of HTTPS in its current version, that means that all those sites must share the same certificate. Thus, its name ...

Re: Magic Window - sort of

The magic window on LV is implemented as an HTML IFRAME element. We might need a phpBB3 extension ("mod") to support that. I'll have a look, but it might have to wait until the week-end. Unfortunately, it's not easy. In phpBB3, either you allow everybody to use the IFRAME tag or nobody. It's very e...

I second that! If anyone wants a redirection [yourname]@legamus.eu to your more private e-mail address, drop me an e-mail.

Re: Discussion of set-up/future legamus.eu

I thought about using flags, but it's easy not to include someone! Anyway, after a couple of weeks the site just becomes an invisible redirection to the Wordpress blog, and once we have a catalogue we put it there.

Re: Discussion of set-up/future legamus.eu

I'm working on separating the former German project to a different site.
Would this be an appropriate Legamus front page for the next days? As soon as the Wordpress blog is "ready", I set a link; and some time later, we can directly link to the Wordpress blog.

Re: How to catalogue

So in the long run, it would be best to have an uploader that adds metadata from the database to the ID3 tags re-encodes in 64 kbps performs audio normalisation "if needed" (if the data is "too far away" from a normalised version) sends the result back to the MC or, if possible, directly uploads to ...
