If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

Hi aniroo,

Well off we go and thanks again for agreeing to DPL another big project!

Section 1 is up:

21:53

The First Opium War begins--gunboat diplomacy at its worst. McCarthy, being Irish, is no fan of imperialism.

My best,

Pam
