Preserve the Transcripts

The transcripts of Shunryu Suzuki lectures and some other sources like the Wind Bell, transcript of the films, have continued to expand and be improved, corrected, and so forth. If you go to Shunryu Suzuki dot com to the Shunryu Suzuki Lecture Search Form and enter no criteria for your search, click Submit, links for the first hundred or so will come up. Then click on Save All Transcripts and the lectures will download into your computer as one file. Go to the bottom of the page of search results and click on Next. Go back up and click Save All Transcripts. Do that two more times and you will have all the lectures in four files. I put them together into one file that's 2778 pages in my computer as a MS Word file.  Now print it up on acid free paper and keep it in a - we'll have to look into the next step. That all-in-one file is great for searching and so are both the search forms on shunryusuzuki.com. Go back and redownload the transcripts from time to time because we keep adding to and correcting and so forth. This is part of an attempt at crowd archiving started with yesterday's post to copy the whole shunryusuzuki.com website. Thanks and take care. - dc
