Re: File hosting, distribution and storage

I think files expire only after they have not been downloaded for 30 days, in the case of ge.tt that becomes even 90 days if one uses a registered account instead of an anonymous download. Reuploads are only necessary if no one downloaded the work for that time. The problem is a different one. ge.tt...

Re: File hosting, distribution and storage

Friendly answer from ge.tt: Our servers are located in ireland. And for the moment it's not likely to change. I can not guarantee it, though. But since this will have consequences for some users we will notify users if this should ever change. Until now we've had no issues with using servers in irel...

Re: Templates, tech specs and so on

The only way to be safe, would be to make sure that we are completely outside the US domain (even with cloud based hosting etc.). Viktor , can we be absolutely sure we are? At the moment, a clear YES ! Domain registered at OVH (French registrar and provider) by me (German citizen living in France)....

Re: Domain name

So far, for our situation, I do think that a forum is the best way. Not sure we'd find a time that suits everybody - I have some minutes every now and then, but at the moment my time is hardly plannable at all - and the person who cannot participate will always feel left out in the rain. (Just for a...

Is anyone here in contact with or a member of the Electronic Frontier Foundation? Sounds like a good subject to discuss with them, preemptively.

Re: Domain name

If there are no legal clouds on the horizon and we choose freely between legamus.eu and librivox.eu, we might consider questions like this one that popped just up in another thread: Should we allow CC licenses? For me, choosing librivox.eu implicitly says: We're doing things exactly the same way as ...

Re: Templates, tech specs and so on

Somewhere at the forum I saw mentioning of Creative Commons. Then the question is: which license ? Closest to PD would be: also commercial use allowed, modifications allowed, no name needed to be mentioned. But we do not necessarily need to choose that option. I for one would be more in favour to r...

Is the minimum width of the forum too large for your screen? If so, then that's a bug (I always suspect such bugs with these forum "styles"). Noted :)

Re: Templates, tech specs and so on

Hmm. The "This LV recording is in the PD" meant, for me, that *I* was releasing it in the PD. I mean, it just means I can't claim any rights over it, I am releasing this recording - but if the text is PD in your country or not, that's for you to research. I second Ruth, and there is no contradictio...

Re: Templates, tech specs and so on

I don't mind section 0. It's only that in most of my projects the chapter number isn't the section number anyway. Viktor wants to build a tool that can suck metadata. Maybe sec 0 makes this more difficult? No worries, IT people like counting from zero, but it's just a technical habit. I can start w...

Re: File hosting, distribution and storage

I think it would be simpler to say (for example) that German law applies and then host all the files in Germany (because if you host some of the files in France or Hungary or whatever, why should anyone accept that German law applies?). I just seems to me that putting files in various countries is ...

Dear Carl, are you based in the UK? ;) Why are you at all surprised that anything that spans several European countries is necessarily going to be a chaos? Maybe a beautiful, enriching, mind-expanding chaos, but still a mess! (Wasn't it along these lines that L'Auberge Espagnole ended...?) And then ...

Re: Domain name

Funny, I thought it would be the other way round: "Let's read" sounded too much like a reading club to me (reading silently), so I added the "together". And like Hokuspokus, I suggest some explanation on the front (=catalogue?) page - which will be legamus.eu or http://www.legamus.eu, of course - an...

I have plenty of ideas flirring around in my head, and I try to put them into a reasonable order :) That leads me to the question: Do you all agree on the domain name "legamus.eu" ? It happens to be the URL we're on right now, but I don't want to force that on you, it's only an offer! There was also...

Re: File hosting, distribution and storage

Now may I add one more point to the wish list? Could you build something that collects all the data from a database and puts it together into a HTML catalog page? Something we could copy and past where ever we decide to have the catalog. Sure, that's very much what I had in mind. Instead of all-dyn...

Re: Sponsored server?

I had a very positive chat today; in short, what we'd want is called more a patron (mécène) than a sponsor. My contact was quite confident that we'd find someone and he offered to help in this process. We'd have to present our project and our needs in two or three paragraphs. That said, I believe th...

I agree that it would be nice to have flac files first, while we are working on it and only encode to mp3 for the final release. But: Many PLers use their mp3 player for listening and many of them can't play flac. Many useful software (mp3gain, mp3tag, ... )works with mp3 only. I don't want to chan...
