Robert Read has pointed out to me that LiteralSystems' series of audiobook recordings now includes Sacxio Oka's Esperanto translation of O. Henry's famous short Christmas tale "The Gift of the Magi" as read by Derek Roff. You can hear this 22-minute MP3 recording (or simply download it into your iPod) from here.

DNS Issues Resolved!

limako's picture

The DNS problems have finally been solved, thanks to Trio. It was a significant piece of work and I'm very grateful someone was willing to dig into the issue and track down the problem. The correct address is working for me today and should propagate through the network overnight. Sometime tomorrow, I'll plan to switch over the URL.

Publika rekontigxo pri Esperanto cxe UMass

limako's picture

Je la 8a de februaro, Amherst Esperanto kaj, precipe, Paul Ganssle, organizis publikan informan kunvenon pri Esperanto cxe UMass. Ni metis multajn afisxojn tra la universitato, sendis informon al lokaj jxurnaloj, kaj invitis multajn lokajn kaj regionojn parolantojn veni kaj prelegi. Gxi ne estis tiom sukcesa ol kiom ni antauxvidis, sed nek estis fiasko. Kaj ni lernis multon.

Thanks to Ela Karczewska, I now have some more information about several songs that have haunted me for years. Two I found on a Radio Polonia Tape from the ELNA Audio Tape Service (86-01PL). Two I heard on a relatively recent Radio Polonia broadcast. The tape does mention the name of the singer at one point, but I could never quite make out his name or get the spelling right (and wasn't even sure if that was the name of the singer), so even with the coming of the Web I couldn't track him down.

Taught my second Esperanto class today....

Robert L. Read's picture

I'm still wired from the experience...I feel like I've had
6 cups of coffee. I think it went really well.

I am teaching after school every Tuesday for nine weeks.
The kids are 2nd through 5th graders, and were selected by
the teachers for interest and ability.
The first half of each section I use to talk about linguistics
in general. Today I talked about diachronic linguistics and
how Latin give rise to the Romance language, and the discovery
of the Indo-European superfamilial relationships.

The next half of the class was a lesson in Esperanto.
They really seemed to get it and to be interested; it really
seems that some of them are doing the 10 minutes a day of study
that I insisted on.
