Librivox expands their audio book catalog

The acoustical liberation of books in the public domain continues with the bulk release LibriVox made at the end of March. For those of you who don't know about it, LibriVox is an initiative to coordinate volunteers to record audio versions of public domain texts. The size of the catalog is now very impressive. This is a great way to fill your mp3 player with worthwhile texts to listen to on commutes and such.

With Aesop, Jane Austen, William Shakespeare, H.G. Wells, and Sophie Jewett, there's surely something for all.

Have a look at their catalog.

Conformance: The Only Bible Software You Need

Yes, version 4.1 of the application debuted on 4/1 for a reason. As always, the April 1 post receives a large increase in stat activity. The application is good for a chuckle, so it's still available as a Universal Binary if you're inclined to take it out for a spin. Cheers.

As some of my closest friends have known for months, I have been developing my own bible software package. I feel that in the mix of all the bible software wars, the true essentials of the text and the truths that define its interpretation are getting lost. It is with this motivation that I decided to create a new bible software application for the Macintosh... "Conformance". Conformance cuts through all the bells and whistles and takes one straight to the only text(s) you need to know. It runs on OS X 10.2+ and runs as native Intel universal binary and is Applescriptable. The features are limited for now, but growing.

The beta version has reached b4.1 and it's time to open it up to public testing. It's free, so you have nothing to lose. Give it a try and tell me what you think.

The universal binary of Conformance Bible Software is now available here.
