Well, that was a chore, but here is the completed recording.
I included only the footnotes that I thought contributed something materially to the discussion.

Hi and welcome to Librivox!
There are a few things to do before you get started.
You will need to complete a one minute test - this is to check your specs are up to Librivox standards, and if not, you'll be given hints on how to remedy that. http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/1-Minute_Test
Please post your test in the Listeners Wanted forum (see the dropdown at the bottom of the page) for the speediest response. Waiting for the OK may seem tedious, but can save time in the long run.
You will also need to be added to the catalog of readers. I will add you using your forum name, but if you prefer your real name or a pseudonym let me know. We can also link to a personal blog or website. Be sure to read the first post - all the info you need is there, but if anything doesn't make sense, just ask. The wiki (see the top of the page) has bundles of info too.

And just to double check... which section are you requesting?

Hello Lynne

I apologize but I didn't review Section 10 thoroughly enough before asking to take it on as my first recording. I spent a couple hours at it today but I can't handle the extensive Sanskrit and occasional Chinese pronunciations and I know my editing skills aren't good enough yet to chop this up small enough to deal with multiple editing of each pronunciation. Can you take me off the section and I'll find something more straightforward as something to start with. Once again apologies

Not a problem. This text is particularly challenging... it’s a pity as volumes 1 and 2 were straightforward. Most of the other sections seem to be OK, if you want to look through them.

Thanks for the understanding. I'm making good progress with a Shopenhauer dialogue on another book so I'll finish that and circle back around. My eyes were bigger than my stomach so to speak.... good to be enthusiastic to start but need to temper that with some realism here.
