Gutenberg-DE also mentions Ernest Thompson Seton. Surely there are many more.

Re: HTTPS and IPv6

Progress over the last couple of days - all Legamus services are now using HTTPS by default. As said above, minor warnings may be indicated by the browsers because of non-HTTPS links to images. Soon that will work, too, but I want to wait a bit to see that no catastrophic failures are happening at t...

Re: solo [ENGLISH] The Guermantes Way by Marcel Proust

I'm having difficulty uploading. I've tried both my Legamus password and my Magic Window password but neither work for the uploading screen. The uploader has its own password, I'm sending you a Private Message for it. Should I not mention the translator? I know I named him at the start of every sec...

Re: question about book

As long as you're sure you got the edition which is now in the public domain, I see no problem with reading from a hardcopy.
We did it before.

Re: solo[ENG]The Gardener and the Burden - Rudyard Kipling-h

Congratulations! The download page is ready: http://listen.legamus.eu/kipling_gardenerandburden/ I like it very much that here at Legamus soloists can choose another CC licence, but I never understood, why Legamus should be credited and not the reader. I don't think that was ever on purpose - nobody...

Magic Window

The Magic Window that Crowwings wrote for us has switched servers. Links now start with "https://crowwings.legamus.eu/mw/" and the Magic Window should work better! You might still find the old address in old Private Messages; but in forum posts you should only see the new address. If you experience ...

HTTPS and IPv6

The general direction in browser development is to consider non-encrypted ("http://") connections as obsolete and unsafe, and our hoster TuxFamily just did one step in this direction: They have installed LetsEncrypt certificates for all their sites. That means: forum and blog are now also accessible...

Wenn Ihr sagt, daß die Abschnittsnummer in den Titel soll, werde ich das schon irgendwie hinbekommen. Bestimmt gibt es irgendeinen MP3-Player, dem das besse...

Re: [Deutsch] Peter und Alexej von Mereschkowski - J_N

Es wird nichts überschrieben, sondern die neue Datei hat einen neuen Link.

Ich empfehle, den auch ins Magic Window hineinzuschreiben. Aber beim Erstellen der Download-Seite sehe ich stets nach, welche Datei frischer ist, wenn es mehrere gibt. Kann also nichts schiefgehen :)

Sorry I didn't get around to answer your PM, Piotr. We don't have an LV-like error-reporting section We do: Bug Reports ;) That file is still on ge.tt, they create the ZIP on-the-fly. Sometimes there can be an error in the process. All new files are on our server. However, its on-the-fly zipping is ...
