Hello!

I would like to claim section 16, please.

This will be my first recording, and I have not yet decided on a pseudonym for the catalogue.
May I get back to you on that?

Thank you very much!

Yes, you can! For now I'll just stick in your forum name. If you want to change it later, it's best to do it before a project you read for goes to catalog.

Hi, I have chapter 6 assigned for me.

I will send it in as it is for proofreading. It is the complete chapter and at good volume and pace, but I know there are some faults,
but I am doing a new degree at a university so I never seem to have had time to proofread the whole chapter myself, and now I fear it
will be too late if I do not send in the chapter. Also, I do in general miss some faults that the proofreader will hear, anyway, so if I corrected
myself now, it would mean twice the work.

Hope that makes sense and now I am sending the chapter in.

Will you still be able to make the corrections? (This will mean twice the work for the prooflistener; fortunately, she's willing to do that.) ;)

If they are open, I'd like to take 11 and 13. I visited William Herschel's house in Bath, which is set up as a museum and includes his original astronomical equipment. He was also a composer.
