Urgent note that LibriVox servers are about to get migrated.
Hopefully things will be smooth, seamless, and no one will notice a thing. Probably that won’t be the case.
So there may be more weirdness to fix afterwards, with particular areas of worry the Magic Window (for LibriVox volunteers) and the Catalog system (for listeners and volunteers).
So, sorry in advance for that! We’ll try to get everything back to normal as quickly as possible.
