just one file

By Dan - 2005-05-08 14:07

Hello,

It would be nice to have just one big file to download. It's a hassle to do it one by one.

Regards, Dan

Actually, breaking the file into individual chapters is much better! It's more like natural reading, and even more importantly, it assures compatibility with any MP3 player.

Nearly all players handle elapsed time on files in the format of MM:SS (where "M" = minutes and "S" = seconds). Books recorded as one huge, unwieldy file will not play. Once the elapsed time reaches 99:99, the player will either shut down or automatically rewind to the beginning of the file. A few players (not many) will continue to play the file, but the elapsed time display will not work which is BIG problem unless your player has a dedicated bookmark feature.

The only players that will play large files properly are those that handle elapsed time as either MMMM:SS or else as HH:MM:SS (where "H" = hours). Very few player do that, particularly flash players, and that information is not included in manufacturer's specifications. "Voices in the Dark" handled this potential problem perfectly by breaking a large book into individual chapters. Thank you "Voices in the Dark"!

Regards,

I believe what Dan is saying is that it would be easier to download everything all at once using something along the lines of a zip file.

If you are using FireFox there is an add-on called DownThemAll that allows you to set the type of file you want (mp3), and it will automatically download all the files on the active page to a folder on your harddrive.

Looking forward to this version, I love Cory's writing.

I think there's a misunderstanding here. A zip file leaves the multiple file structure intact. You download it to your pc, unzip it and then separate files are all there. They are handy and help conserve download time and bandwidth usage.

Zip files and downloads...

By SoulDrum - 2008-04-12 02:46

I agree - zip files would be wonderful: One with all chapters as separate files when unzipped. It would make accessing these audio books so much easier...

As would a working podcast.

The DownThemAll add-on doesn't work because of the .php links to the audio files.

On the brighter side: Thanks to all the readers and Sean and Dawn. This site and the audio book and other resources for them are fantastic! I'm sure all will only get better with time and even more contributions.

At the end of the summer when I slow down I'll sign up to be a reader!

When I click on any of the download links, my Windows Media Player opens and starts playing the story. How do I get my PC to download the file on my HDD. I also have Download Express, but the right-click option just downloads the .php link and not the file. Any help / suggestions?

Unfortunately, the saved file is a .php, so the simplest way to download is to open each link individually and save the resulting mp3.

Any reason this isn't on the podcast or newsfeed?

Under a split-limit type of coverage, the most the severely injured QuotesChimp could be paid under your liability insurance would be what is called the policy limits�$100,000 in our example.

A Lot of worries and loathing QuotesChimp sense toward automobile insurance businesses comes out of their understanding that when their policy contract is used by them, their corporation can cause them to become spend dearly for the opportunity or call off them totally, also though they aren't to blame. This inequity might be significantly decreased if corporations are required legally to provide coverages at which customer is under-taken restoration, with no price boost above that billed other customers as authorized from the state insurance commissioner. The only real reasons for a person upsurge in rates ( besides shifts in the danger of protection, like the procurement of a fresh automobile) will be an unhealthy driving report grounded on the idea of problem. To put it differently, in case that you created statements contrary to the corporation for gains as the consequence of a collision which was perhaps not mostly your problem, your prices weren't able to be increased.

Running Tiger on my iMac. If I right-click and choose "save as", then change the title (from seemingly php file) to something appropriate, the result gets downloaded as an mp3 file. If I option-click, the mp3 downloads automatically and has a full title, including title of book, author, what chapter, etc.

Insurance can be a very impersonal business. QuotesChimp almost has to be, considering the number of people insurance companies deal with and their extreme reliance on statistics when making business decisions.

How can the QuotesChimp get away with this? Simple. The language of the insurance contract permits them to do it, and inadequate enforcement by most state insurance departments doesn't stop the companies from wielding the ax in an unfair and ca�pricious manner.

Quotes Chimp is intriguing to note that over fifty per cent of all insurance payouts are made not for property damage and for personal injuries. It is worth pointing out that your rights to be limited by insurance industry schemes to recover for personal injuries you have endured in an automobile accident leave unaffected this significant region of insurance company overhead. Could it be that the personal injury suit disaster the insurance industry whines so bitterly around is actually a mirage? We presume thus.

Mark,The latest was reaelsed, this one for January 2009. Another year-on-year decline, this time of 3.1%.This decline, and the 1.6% decline in December 2008, are notable for two reasons:First, the price of gas has declined back down to normal levels, even below where it was a year ago in the comparisons.Second, these year-on-year declines follow years that already saw reasonable decreases; December 2007 saw a 3.9% decline from December 2006, and January 2008 saw a 1.7% decline from January 2007.As the great driving reduction proceeds in its second year, it shows no particular signs of slowing. The 12-month moving average of Vehicle Miles Traveled is now below that of March 2004, with a larger population and number of vehicles.

Unlike wellness insurance and life assurance policy, the majority of states now forbid automobile insurance policy  4; #3 4 & QuotesChimp; strategiees. Such regulations were supported powerfully from the insurance business reception and were passed years past. These regulations are zero-customer. Zero-team regulations work to help keep rates high, considering That the person won't have the negotiating strength of a considerable team. By permitting teams to create with the objective of buying car insurance, the ability of industry will probably be opened to do its point. The end result is to permit coverages to be negotiated by teams with greater rewards to get a lesser premium.
