Re: Short Stories by Damon Runyon

They don't claim copyright, but I haven't ever seen a notice specifically stating that they are in the PD. I usually use it to find things and then track them down on Hathi Trust or Archive.org. Here are a few: The Breed and the Ball Munsey's, May 1911 http://hdl.handle.net/2027/uc1.b2870649?urlappe...

Re: Don't you hate...

Don't you JUST HATE the plethora of supposed pronunciation guides on the Internet, which purport to offer authentic pronunciations of very obscure place and personal names?

Re: ~[SHORT STORIES] Ruby Wedding Collection - ruthieg

Hah! Me too.

I am making a few alterations to the contents of this collection. One or two of the original ones were really not very good, and I have found a couple of others which are better.

I think that commencing p. 702 there is a story by E. Nesbit called The Ruby Heart, which I may like to add to my Ruby Collection (if it isn't too long), but I cannot see it owing to copyright restrictions.

Thanks!

Re: Unable to export a mono file as mono - need help please

I am very grateful too. I was racking my brains on this one. I have added this curious case to the Audacity FAQ in the Wiki.

Well, well! That's an explanation I wouldn't have thought of! My thanks added to Sonia. I was a bit baffled, as I have never come across that before. I have added it to the Wiki in case it ever crops up again. Thank you for sorting it out :).

So, as Judi is just starting out, I will give her step-by-step instructions on how to deal with this. What I suggest you do, Judi, is first to change the stereo file to mono in Audac...
