I'll have a crack at downloading the complete project when I have finished my morning communications!

I downloaded the complete project and unzipped it successfully in just over ten minutes. I have a question, I have looked at the transcripts but the images aren't embedded. Have I missed something?

They never have been Stanley. The only place the images are embedded is in the mined code.

Transcripts were uploaded to the dev site then the images to the gallery. Images then added to the posts in the normal way and the data set mined, uploaded to the server and then linked into the live site.

If they were to be in the Word or Open Office docs we would have to repeat the exercise with each of the transcripts. We would end up with some very large file to contend with as well.

So this download is as good as it gets? No problem, I can always direct the punters to the site but I just want to be sure before I engage the process of making people aware.

If we distributed the mined code instead it would have to go on a DVD, it would need some kind of front end launcher writing to launch the project. Running it from DVD would entail any machine thrashing about somewhat to retrieve the data from the disc and it would be rather slow navigating. As the data set references what is essentially a mirror of what is on the live site, any internet enabled machine used with the DVD would probably have problems, particularly with backward navigation links as it would attempt to link to the live site.

We could embed the pictures in the docs but it just means doing it all again.

I have been thinking further about this and have been doing a bit of experimentation, early days yet but see my post in the admin thread, there may be a workaround.

Downloads are temporarily disabled. I am hoping to have them back up later today.

Downloads are now re-enabled.

I have produced new transcripts with the images embedded within the texts as they are on the website version. These can be downloaded as a full package of the project. Transcripts of the original audio tapes are also available as a separate download as are all the images that are included within the threads.

I'm confused. Your PM said you were still working on the download.... Is it mended or not?

My PM was sent 24 hours ago Stanley in response to yours. I sorted it yesterday afternoon after work. Please see the download section and the admin thread for the LTP.

I still miss the introductory music to the LTP. That played whenever we logged on to the project, on the old site.
Is there any way Ian,
that it can be uploaded again??

Unfortunately not Gus, there is no facility in the forum platform software and the LTP is ripped read only code so cannot be appended to without starting again.

I find it quite amazing that in the two and a half years since we relaunched the LTP and with over 2100 hits on the project. Apart from the initial tittle tattle regarding the odd teething problem, there hasn't been a single additional comment or question posted. Quite bizarre when some of the other threads have posts running into the tens of thousands. Mind you, I suppose it is a rather specialised read and folk would have to register to comment.

The same will happen on Gutenberg or any of the other archive sites. People will just read or download and that's it. Main thing is that it is being spread all over the world and will live in the Cloud!
