I heard about The Importance of Being Ernest, listened to some of it and was rather impressed. The whole project is great - I shall definitely be taking Pride and Prejudice around on my MP3 player now.

I'm also looking forward to trying out doing some reading. Hopefully I can get a decent setup and help with this really rather marvellous project.

Welcome Matt! I sooooooo love the Brittish accent. I hope you do some readings for us! You can start by looking into the weekly poetry or short works. it gives you a good oppotunity to test your recording setup. :)


OH I just saw that you found it! We all love accents so no problem with doing any works with a different accent then the author's :)

Have fun!

Hello KATWAL, I'm doing Computer Science. Please don't ask me to elaborate, as it's a bit tricky to explain unless you already have a background in functional programming and type theory.

Are you kidding??? Ph.D. level work in the area of Computer Science. :?

I just hate when my ignorance is waving like a red flag, therefore I won't ask a single question. :)

Lots of people react like that... I wonder, do people do that to PhD Chemists as well?

Hey, people call us computer geeks, who they run to when their computers don't work, computer doctors anyway. So, why not a CS Ph.D.?

Well I certainly do seem to spend a lot of time fixing other people's computers!
