One way you can share it is by breaking it up into smaller PDF files and then send them as attachments to a PM here in this website. Do not post it as an attachment to a post because the staff will immediately remove it.
How to split PDF files?
download free software from pdfsam.org and you can then split all your PDF files easily.

So were you talking about this page
