Sue,

If I remember correctly, you are using Kurzweil 1000.  If so, are you using
the K1K on your new laptop or just Microsoft Word to process your RTF files?

Hi Prat,

Yes, that does help me understand John's job.  I wasn't using my head, if I 
have one.  <grin>

Speaking of John, he suggested that I post a problem I have in uploading 
books for admin approval.  I have a Dell Notebook and cannot seem to upload 
books after validating them.  I do the usual, limiting the filename to 8 
letters or less, I tried zipping it, I deleted my cookies and did the space 
delete trick, and still cannot upload a book which is not large enough to be

a problem.

I recently changed from dial-up on a Gateway Tower to DSL on this laptop. 
The error messages I get run from none to things like problem copying the 
file, not a valid RTF file, and it just sits on accept until the page 
expires.  I have tried browsing for the path as well.

I enjoy validating if the book is interesting.  Any ideas about why I would 
be having problems on this laptop when I had none on the Gateway Tower?

Thanks.

Sue S.

Sue,

I am sure Bookshare has no objection to John approving books if time
permits.  John, however, has taken over support duties that take up an
incredible amount of time.  In other words, if you recall the duties that
Peter performed when he worked with Bookshare, John is performing similar
duties and has responsibilities that force him to focus on answering user
inquiries in a timely manner.  Not only does John focus on answering
technical questions on this list, but he is responsible for answering all
questions that come to him at support@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx  With Bookshare's
growing focus on University memberships and student members, I am certain
that John's time is well-spent on areas where he excels a great deal.

HTH.

Pratik

I should think Gustavo could let John Glass help approve books since he is
right there in Palo Alto and is the customer support manager.

Wow!! So many new books have been submitted from, I
assume, commercial sources, and you volunteers have
been so busy (I say you, because I'm slower and still
working on one long but fascinating one) that there
are  approcxiamtely 275 books waiting for admin
approval. If only someone could help Gustavo with that
project.

And 350 awaiting validation.

And, for those of you who like statistics, 143 on the
rejected list. Some of those look really good; the one
on the top would be good to have for Christmas. Mabe
some of you who like to scan could scan some of the
rejected books. Jake, is there any way to tell when
those books were rejected? If they were rejected some
time ago and haven't been rescanned, then that would
support my argument that having someone like me
validate and fix it, even if it takes a while, would
be better than outright rejection.
