Open Clip Art

Postby Rhakios » Thu Aug 18, 2005 8:21 pm

Open Clip Art might be a good inclusion for the CD/DVD, it has recently reached version 16. While the ~80MB might not be a problem for broadband users, it might not be so good for those still on dial-up.
Please ignore this if it has featured recently, but I have not noticed it and without the disc search facility working I can't easily tell.

The other disc search facility works well, and is a lot faster - grepping the CSV files :)

Open Clipart was on CD and DVD 62.

Not for nearly a year then. There seem to have been several releases since then, it might be worth including again, but I suppose that's up to Mike Saunders now.

Bizarre! That was one of the first things I chose for 73's coverdiscs, about a week ago. Shows I must be in touch... somehow :-)

Yep indeedy! The Chrimbo issue's coverdiscs will be audio CDs, featuring the LXF team singing various carols. Put in your requests now!

Perhaps we could have an a cappella version of Cage's 4'33"

Haha :-) I remember 'hearing' a live performance of that on R3 sometime last year (or the year before). Apparently the BBC had to disable their automatic system that cuts in after three minutes of silence...
