Series Needed

Saturday, November 21st, 2009

One of the Library members has requested that I upload
/
/’Nelson Eddy – The Electric Hour’.
/
/
/
/I’m supposed to have 15 episodes, but can’t locate them.
/
/
/
/If anyone has a set they could supply, please reply by
/
/posting to this blog.

Oh so sorry!

Tuesday, November 17th, 2009

Hi All,
/
/
/
/I’m so sorry that the Lux Radio Theater that we listed is not
/
/available.  The OTRR is working on certifying that series,
/
/and we are holding  the newly encoded episodes for it.

Good News

/
/
/I’m doing some cleanup work behind the scenes.  Therefore

Changes to the Library

Ethel and Albert 48-05-16 Babysitter.mp3 s/b Ethel and Albert 48-05-06 Babysitter.mp3

/At the OTRR library there can be the same broadcast found under two different titles and broadcast dates: Ellery Queen 39-07-30 (007) The Bad Boy” and “Ford Theater 8-01-04 (14) Adventures of the Bad Boy”. Both recordings are identical. The second entry is correct. It is a “Ford Theater” broadcast, as it is clearly said by the announcer, who also gives the date (first sunday in 1948). It is also a NBC broadcast, while Ellery Queen in 1939 was on CBS. Armin Nassauer

X Rated Bloopers, Yes or No

Monday, November 9th, 2009

I have received a folder of x-rated bloopers by the stars.
/
/Some are just funny and some use a lot of curse words.
/
/But they are all part of radio history.
/
/
/
/So, here’s the deal.  Please make a post to this one and let
/
/me know if you are in favor of putting them in the Library,
/
/or you think they should be left off.

Duplicate Submissions for Library Cards

Monday, November 9th, 2009

Recently there has been a spate of duplicate submissions
/
/for Library Cards i.e. the same person applying for a card,
/
/and 3 months later applying for another.  I’m assuming that
/
/is because they forgot their user name and password.
/
/
/
/Where we can catch these, we will not issue a duplicate
/
/card.  The simple solution is to e-mail me and tell me that.
/
/I will then issue a new card.
/
/
/
/jimb

New FAQ added

Thursday, November 5th, 2009

Hi All,
/
/
/
/We have added a new FAQ to the second page.  Its the second
/
/FAQ on that page and applies mainly to new people
/
/receiving library cards.

Broken Link Fixed

Wednesday, November 4th, 2009

Hi All,
/
/
/
/It was reported that none of the ‘S’ links worked.  That has

/been fixed.

/If you know of other broken links, please make a comment

Usage Report for Sept

Tuesday, November 3rd, 2009

Hi all,
/
/
/
/September was the busiest month so far for the OTRRLibrary,
/
/with an increase in card holders to 890.  There were 5608 visits
/
/to the site with a total of 286 gigabites downloaded for the
/
/month.  The total so far for 2009 is 2041 gigabites!
/
/
/
/These were all downloaded for FREE! No charge whatsoever
/
/for anything.
/
/
/
/We have had visits from 117 countries. The number of ‘unique’
/
/visitors for the month was 5608.  Unique means first-timers.
/
/Our web counter only counts you once, so any more visits
/
/are not counted.
/
/
/
/The OTRRLibrary is dedicated to bringing you the most
/
/series and every episode available in mp3 format.  Where
/
/possible we bring you 64 encodes, but much is only available
/
/in 32.  But we will upgrade encodes when we find better
/
/sounding ones.
/
/
/
/We want as many people to use the Library as possible, and
/
/ask you to review the FAQs regularly as we may add one
/
/from time to time.  One problem is that some ignore the 10
/
/gigs per person download limit.  In September, one member
/
/downloaded a total of 24 gigs in just over a week after he
/
/was given a card.  This is either simple greed, or they were
/
/downloading for usage by a FTP site.
/
/
/
/I’m not sure how this was done, unless some sort of a
/
/’grabber’ program was used. None the less they have been
/
/banned for the month.
/
/
/
/Please try to stay within the limits of 10 gigs per person per
/
/month, and please try to space your downloading over the
/
/month so as not to abuse the server.  Bluehost has been
/
/very good to us.
/
/
/
/Remember this Library will be around for a long time, and we
/
/hope that you enjoy the programs you get.
/
/
/
/jimb
/
/on behalf of the members and friends of the OTRR group.
