I'll need the following information from you when you submit a recording:
- your name/pseudonym as you want to appear in the LibriVox catalog, and your website URL if you like. These are only necessary if this is your first LibriVox recording.
- the file size of your .mp3 file.[/list]

Any questions?

I'll be your MC for this project TBOL3 :)

I'd like to recommend that you change the information for filename so that it tells your readers exactly what to use for the filename.

Also, you can use my uploader if you'd like (any uploader is fine though). If you choose to do so, you can change the information in the first post to the following.

Kri, you might want to change the mold for BCs, becouse the link for the text dissapears when you replace it with the little box.

OK, I replaced it.

Oh, and I forgot to mention. I'm pretty sure in this work the chapters are titled. You'll want to make sure that the titles eventually get added to each section.

May I have #6, The Reigate Puzzle ? I've always loved the bit of acting Holmes does in that one.
