The problem here is that the thesis was not set up with this sort of thing in mind. A number of pictures and maps make it quite large, with some of the chapters over a megabyte in size. I probably could go through and downsize some of them. In any case, the whole thing weighs in at 8 MB. Sent through the email in pieces, it might overflow his mailbox, especially if he doesn't read it much.
So I uploaded a PDF of it so it can be read with a browser (and downloaded, if he has broadband, and printed, if he has a spare ream of paper). Then sent him an email with the URL.
Obviously, I don't expect him to read it. Just following orders.
