Sure! Do wait for an OK on your test before starting to record, though. :)

How would you like to be credited in the catalog? There are places for a catalog name (some use a nickname or forum name, some their real name) and a link to a personal web site or blog, if you have one. I recommend using whatever name you say (if any) when you say, "recorded by [your name]" as that's how listeners will look for you. (Keep in mind that prospective employers, classmates, enemies, etc. can also find you using the catalog name, so be cautious if privacy might be an issue.)

Section 19 PL OK!

Yes, he does tend to make his sentences wander on their leash, then draw them back. :lol:

May I unclaim section 50? I've been having some problems with that specific section.

Section 18 PL OK!

Section 50 - it's read well, but I find it very hard to understand. I assume it's the microphone - the sound is muffled, such that the words are hard to make out. :? Do you have a different microphone you could use?
